What is waterjet cutting?

Waterjet cutting involves the use of a waterjet machine to cut through a variety of materials. The waterjet machine works by directing a high-pressure stream of water mixed with an abrasive substance at the material in order to precisely cut. Waterjet cutting is an alternative to other methods of cutting, like laser cutting. Waterjet cutting has many benefits compared to other methods. Because no heat is involved, there are no burn marks on the materials, and therefore, no finishing required. Waterjet cutting is highly accurate and can cut through thicker materials than other cutting methods.

Some advantages of waterjet cutting include:

  • Range of materials
  • No finishing
  • Narrow kerf
  • Material usage optimization
  • High surface quality
  • Accuracy 
  • Efficiency
  • Quick prototyping
  • Minimal burr on cutting edge
  • No thermal impact
  • Quick delivery
