Waterjet cutting and its advantages

Waterjet cutting and its advantages

Waterjet cutting is a process by which materials are cut with a high-pressure water jet. Waterjet cutting is used, for example, in aerospace and vehicle workshops to efficiently cut shapes and parts. For very hard materials, a granular abrasive is added to the water jet to increase the cutting force. Almost any material can be cut with waterjet cutters. For example, plastics, metals such as steels, alloys, titanium and copper, rubber, glass, concrete, ceramics and stone.

The main advantages of waterjet cutting are:

  • A high pressure pump that increases the water pressure to about 4,000 bar. This allows it to cut almost any material.
  • The nozzle that adjusts the water jet very precisely and in a targeted way so that it can cut accurately. This nozzle can be equipped with an abrasive mixing line to mix it with the water.
  • Cutting tables that help to adjust the position of the nozzle for even greater precision.
  • A pre-set configuration panel that can be used to automatically create the cutting shape.
  • The cutting process is cold, eliminating the risk of melting, tearing, hardening or deformation. The absence of heat and dust creates an even safer and environmentally friendly working environment.
