The Benefits of Waterjet Cutting
The Versatility, Precise Cutting and Clean Finish of Abrasive WaterJet Machining Avoid the Need for Expensive Secondary Finishing
The Abrasive WaterJet is an excellent alternative to Laser Cutting, Flame Cutting and Plasma Cutting, as well as Wire EDM in some cases. If the tolerance is +/- .005" or greater, waterjet machining equipment can work for you. Lower overall costs of water jet cutting are achieved by faster production rates and optimal part positioning and nesting to reduce material waste and part handling.
Waterjet machining equipment offers a capacity of up to 55" x 100" in cutting area, up to 8" in thickness, and up to 4,000 pounds in weight. The waterjet machining equipment is also able to cut through many different types of material such as Hardened Steel, Kevlar, Composites, Marble, Titanium, Rubber, Aluminum, Glass, Ceramic, Granite, Wood, Plastic, Fiberglass and just about anything else you can think of.
No distortion and no stresses are imparted to the material while producing a superior edge quality with minimal burr. Abrasive WaterJet cutting uses no heat; the molecular structure of the material remains unaltered. This makes water jet cutting the optimal process for rough machining. Rough machining can be done on your part, leaving stock for your finish machining processes. With no heat affected zones, that means less wear on your cutting tools.
