Waterjet cutting technology
Waterjet cutting is one of the most versatile production techniques. Wide ranges of materials can be cut with this technology. The technology reduces rework on the final products. This versatility and reduction of rework has led to an increase in popularity in the manufacturing work. For these results to be consistent and reliable, high pressure pumps are needed. Resato is your expert for waterjet cutting systems with system solutions that are robust, flexible and allow you to grow your business.
How it works
How it works
With waterjet cutting materials are being cut by a high pressure water stream. A granular abrasive can be added to increase the cutting power to cut through the hardest materials. With a high pressure pump, that raises the pressure up to 4,000 bar, the waterjet cutting machine can virtually cut though any material. By using the waterjet cutting technique heat damage will be eliminated, because the cut is performed under cold conditions. This leads to a safe workplace and the process is environmentally friendly.
Waterjet cutting is known for its versatility in cutting different materials. One can cut various metals such as aluminum, steel, copper and titanium. Glass, plastics and composites can be worked on well because the process does not generate heat or fumes. We have gathered some information about the most common materials that are cut with a waterjet cutting machine.
