Waterjet cutting is a versatile and precise metal processing method that utilizes a high-pressure stream of water mixed with abrasive particles to cut through various materials. The process involves pressurizing the water to extremely high levels and directing it through a small nozzle, creating a focused jet of water that can erode and cut through the material.
Waterjet cutting is favoured for its ability to produce intricate shapes, sharp corners, and smooth finishes, making it a preferred choice in aerospace, automotive, and architecture industries.
What do you get when you have a machine that can force a gallon of water and over a pound of abrasive sand every minute through a hole the size of a pinpoint at Mach 3? A machine that will cut or etch the most intricate designs in virtually any material you like (steel, titanium, marble, glass, plastic, rubber, carbon fibre, brass, even wood) up to 6 inches thick!
Waterjet cutting works by pressurizing water to high levels and forcing it through a small nozzle to create a concentrated water jet. Waterjet cutting utilizes a high-pressure stream of water, sometimes mixed with abrasive particles, to erode and cut through a wide range of materials, including metals, ceramics, and composites while maintaining the material’s integrity.
