Using water as a cutting method for soft materials has been around for decades. Early forms such as the paper metering system by the Paper Patents Company in the s used relatively low-pressure water. While early waterjets could easily cut soft materials, they were not effective in cutting .   Waterjet has two main advantages compared to other cutting techniques: versatility and simplicity. Its versatility is illustrated by the sheer variety of materials and thicknesses that can be cut on a waterjet, but its simplicity is best illustrated by comparing waterjet to laser, plasma and flame cutting.   Waterjet cutting works by forcing a large volume of water through a small orifice or jewel nozzle creating a supersonic stream of water that is so powerful it can cut through materials in one pass without shredding or crushing them. In some ways, the idea of waterjet cutting . How Waterjet Works. Waterjet technology is a cold cutting process which cuts by using supersonic water, or water and abrasive, to erode material. Because of this, waterjets are unlimited in what they can cut. Get the eBook.

cost effective waterjet cutting & cnc machining to fit your budget. Cutting that was one thought impossible to accomplish through then available methods, can now be achieved with relative ease. Any part can be designed, modified, or upgraded easily and then immediately cut, providing a tremendous advantage to quick turn around type projects. Waterjet solutions Waterjet is the enviromentally friendly technology used to cut accurately any materials with ultra high pressure water (up to Bar) Hydrofinish is the innovative technology used to texture the surface of different materials with high-pressure water only (up to Bar). A Waterjet Built For You + sizes and configurations Compare Waterjets Get a Test Cut. Mach start now. Mach elevate expectations. Mach move forward. Mach make more. Mach think big. NanoJet be precise. We Also Offer Advanced Cutting Solutions. The individual components of our waterjet cutting systems – i.e. control system, directing system, bridge brackets, metering system, Z-axis, abrasive rinsing system, 5-axes cutting head as well as all the other components are well proven and are modularly deployed.

Flow waterjet, it takes only two minutes to switch from pure waterjet cutting of soft materials to abrasive waterjet cutting of nearly any hard material – whether thin or over 10 inches thick. Adding abrasive to the supersonic waterjet stream increases the cutting power a thousand times. A water jet cutter, also known as a water jet or waterjet, is an industrial tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance. The term abrasive jet refers specifically to the use of a mixture of water and abrasive to cut hard materials such as metal or granite, while the terms pure waterjet and water-only cutting refer to .   With waterjet cutting, pump horsepower has direct effect on cut speed and on the amount of abrasive used. Which means the higher the horsepower, the faster the cut and the less abrasive that will be needed. By using a 30hp pump, the A-Series will dramatically lower your cost per part and increase your production. Abstract This book describes a machining technique called Waterjet cutting, also referred to as hydrodynamic machining. It is an advanced technology cutting tool that uses a stream of ultrahigh-pressure water forced through a sapphire nozzle.
