HOW DOES WATERJET CUTTING WORK?
Abrasive waterjet cutting is essentially an accelerated erosion process. It is the perfect solution where precision is paramount and gives the ability to cut any type of material, without being affected by heat.
Ultra High Pressure water is fired through a ruby or diamond orifice into a “mixing chamber” which creates a vacuum and draws garnet sand into the water stream to create an extremely powerful and versatile cutting tool.
Edge quality is one of the key reasons why engineers and fabricators prefer waterjets.
No additional edge treatment
No grinding and dressing of edges
Ready to weld
Edge quality is a function of speed, pressure, nozzle size and abrasive flow rate. Striation marks are caused by the bend in the water stream.
Waterjet cutting is recognised as an efficient and very cost effective process for cutting a wide range of products. It is a cold process which does not change the original state of the material.
Frequently asked questions
Do I need to supply drawings?
