Waterjet Cutting.


Wide Variety of Materials

Waterjet cutting offers an ideal solution for producing clean cuts on a wide range of material types, such as:

  • Composites
  • Concrete
  • Glass
  • Metals and metal alloys
  • Rubber
  • Stone

The list of materials suitable for waterjet cutting is fairly comprehensive, primarily excluding only tempered glass and very hard ceramics.

Non-Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

Non-abrasive waterjet cutting is ideal for precisely cutting softer materials such as food, foam, rubber, and textiles. This process pumps water at extremely high pressures through a ruby, sapphire, or diamond opening. The water stream moves at a velocity of almost twice the speed of sound, granting exceptional cutting capabilities.

Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

Adding abrasive particles to the stream of water facilitates the cutting of very hard and thicker materials, including steel and most metals.

These two methods grant a high level of versatility to the waterjet cutting process. Common examples of waterjet cutting projects may include:

  • Cutting window panels from glass
  • Art installations
  • Creating optic lenses
  • Cutting food during production to mitigate contamination risk caused by blades

Applications for a Wide Variety of Industries

Precision waterjet cutting offers accurate, clean cuts for a variety of different industries, including:

  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Agriculture
  • Architecture
  • Artwork
  • Energy
  • Oil and gas
  • Transportation

Benefits of Waterjet Cutting

Waterjet cutting offers a superior cutting method to most heat-based or friction-based cutting methods. With waterjet cutting, there is no risk of thermal distortion and product hardening that occur with heat-based cutting tools. Waterjet cutting also produces cutes with clean edges, unlike mechanical cutting methods that may require additional finishing to remove burrs and rough edges.

Precision waterjet cutting is a cold working process, ensuring that cuts won’t compromise the structure of the material and inadvertently alter or weaken its physical properties. Waterjet cutting is also 5-10 times faster than electrical discharge machining when working with materials less than 1 inch thick, and the minimal kerf provided by the waterjet cutting process reduces project waste.
