Quality Waterjet Cutting Services
What is Waterjet Cutting?
Waterjet cutting is a method of cutting objects using a high-pressure, high-speed, and high-density water. It’s a cost-effective alternative to other methods of cutting such as laser cutting, plasma, and flame. The pressure of water is increased by passing it through a specialized small-bore nozzle. This makes the water produce a stream of water capable of penetrating hard materials such as metals.
At times, the water is mixed with an abrasive material, giving it more penetration abilities suited to cut hard materials such as glass, stone, etc. Waterjet cutting is mostly used for industrial applications given its quick turnaround time, but the wide range of applications can vary depending on requirements. One of the common applications of waterjet cutting is the fabrication of machine parts. Some of the industries that use waterjet cutting include mining, aerospace, reaming, and more.
Why Use Waterjet Cutting for Manufacturing Your Parts?
The key advantage of waterjet cutting is that it allows you to cut a material without disturbing the inherent structure of the material. Several cutting methods generate heat, which can damage the material’s structure. Also, with waterjet cutting, you can cut complex shapes and get different types of edges.
The amount of scrap material generated by waterjet cutting can be smaller compared to other types of cutting services. Additionally, the water used in waterjet cutting is minimal, and it can be easily recycled. This makes the technique environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Waterjet cutting is also generally regarded as safe for most applications as it doesn’t use any toxic chemicals. If you want to have a higher level of flexibility, precision, and reduce the risk of damaging the material, you should consider using waterjet services for your parts.
