At present, water jet cutting can be used on almost all materials.

Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

Advantages

Extremely accuarate cut (+/- 0,025 mm)

Precise and fast cutting regardless of form, dimension or nature of the material.

It can cut through almost all known materials.

It is suitable for cutting thick and thermally conductive materials.

without heat distortion or mechanically damaged areas.

Neat and clean technology that saves material and time.

cnc water cut with less cost

Because the cutting is cold there is no deformation on the cut edges. The entire process of preparation before cutting is performed in a matter of minutes. Abrasive water jets cut by erosion and not by shearing or using high temperatures. In this way the highest quality of cutting is achieved, without heat distortion or mechanically damaged areas.

Water jets cut through material using a slim cut, without leaving any heat distorted or mechanically damaged areas. This is what makes abrasive water jet cutting a high qualityand cost effective cutting method. The type and hardness of the material worked on are not an issue. Water jet cutting can be used to cut nearly all known materials (aluminium, plastics, stainless steel, wood, felt, granite, marble, rubber, composites, foam, Armaflex, glass, steel, brass, copper, titanium, Plexiglas, magnesium, graphite, laminate, Dibond, ceramics, fire resistant glass…).

It is extremely suitable for materials that cannot withstand high temperatures that are involved in some of the other cutting methods. Our company performs abrasive water jet cutting utilizing a Flow water jet cutting machine. Flow International Corporation is the inventor of water je cutting solutions for various materials, which they patented in 1979. Water jet cutting has many advantages over other cutting methods.a.

How does abrasive water jet cutting work?

Water jets cut through material using a slim cut, without leaving any heat distorted or mechanically damaged areas. This is what makes abrasive water jet cutting a high quality and cost effective cutting method.


1. Creates pressure

The ultra-high pressure pump generates a water flow with a pressure of up to 6480 bar.

2. It converts pressure into speed

This pressure is converted into velocity through a tiny opening and creates a flow as thin as human hair that can cut soft materials.

3. Abrasive presentation

Water and abrasive protrude from the cutting head at almost four times the speed of sound, making it possible to cut steel up to 30cm thick.

What are the benefits of water jet cutting?

  • The cutting is cold and causes no deformations or mechanically distorted areas on the material.
  • Precise and fast cutting regardless of form, dimension or nature of the material.
  • Exceptional accuracy and speed of cutting.
  • It is suitable for cutting thick and thermally conductive materials.
  • It can cut throughalmost all known materials.
  • Can be used to cut complex shapes or inscriptions.
  • Preparation and mounting take only a few minutes.
  • Neat and clean technology that saves material and time.

On which materials can we use water jet cutting?

The type and hardness of the material worked on are not an issue. Water jet cutting can beused to cut nearly all known substances (aluminium, plastics, stainless steel, wood, felt, granite, marble, rubber, composites, foam, Armaflex, glass, steel, brass, copper, titanium, Plexiglas, magnesium, graphite, laminate, Dibond, ceramics, fire resistant glass…).

With water cutting, you get a smooth edge right away. Other cutting technologies often require secondary processing to obtain the same smooth edge created by the waterjet. Check out some cutting examples below.
