Abstract: Abrasive water jet cutting (AWJC) is a novel cutting process capable of cutting wide range of hard-to-cut materials. This paper presents an investigation on surface roughness which is an important cutting performance measure in abrasive water jet cutting of borosilicate glass. Taguchis design of experiments was carried out in order to collect surface roughness values. Experiments were conducted in varying the traverse speed, abrasive flow rate, standoff distance and water pressure for cutting borosilicate glass using abrasive water jet cutting process. The effects of these parameters on surface roughness have been studied based on the experimental result
