As a nontraditional machining technology, abrasive slurry jet (ASJ) has great potential in the machining field. On the basis of summary and analysis of the existing ASJ system, a new type of ASJ system was put forward. In this paper, the principle of the new system was presented, the ASJ generator was developed, the hydraulic power pack was selected, and the system mounting bracket was designed. Finally, a series of experiments, pressuring measuring, jet structure visualizing and material drilling, were carried out. Results show that the new ASJ system can achieve 40 MPa pressure with a stable pressurization process and coherent ASJ generated by the new system is of great strike ability. The new ASJ system is feasible and efficient, which can be used in the field of material manufacturing.
