How Does Waterjet Cutting Work?
Waterjet cutting is a process that uses a high-pressure stream of water to cut through various materials. The stream of water is directed at the material to be cut and the pressure of the water causes it to break down into tiny particles. These tiny particles then create a cutting edge that allows the material to be sliced cleanly and precisely into custom shapes and designs!
It Can Cut Through Most Materials
Waterjet cutting is a versatile process that can be used for a variety of applications. There really are no material limitations when it comes to waterjet cutting! It can cut through almost any material including metal, plastic, glass, rubber, stone, and so much more. It is also environmentally friendly as it does not use chemicals or produce hazardous waste products during the cutting process.
Who Can Benefit from Waterjet Cutting?
Waterjet cutting can be a great option for businesses and individuals who need to cut through tough materials. What’s more, it is an efficient process that can save both time and money! The high-pressure stream of water creates a clean and precise cut, which reduces the amount of waste material produced during the cutting process. Industries that can benefit from waterjet cutting include:
And so much more!
Advantages of Waterjet Cutting
There are many advantages to using CNC waterjet cutting as a means of cutting through tough materials. Some of the key benefits include:
Efficiency - The high-pressure stream of water creates a clean and precise cut, which reduces the amount of waste material produced during the cutting process.
Versatility - Waterjet cutting can be used for a wide range of materials, making it ideal for cutting through tough material that would otherwise be difficult to cut by hand or with other methods.
Environmentally Friendly - Waterjet cutting does not use chemicals or produce hazardous waste products during the cutting process. It is also a quiet process, which reduces the amount of noise pollution created during the cutting process.
Cost Effective - Waterjet cutting is a cost-effective alternative to other methods of cutting through tough materials, and can save time and money by reducing the amount of waste material produced during the cutting process.
