Is water capable of cutting eight-inch thick materials? Definitely – waterjet cutting combines cutting and machining. It has the precision to cut a wide range of materials, complex shapes, and detailed corners with a high degree of accuracy.

Using this technology, we can rapidly transform your ideas into completed projects. Cutting at room temperature, there’s no heat-affected zone, thermal stress, hardening, or annealing of material. We can achieve net or near-net shapes right off the machine. The process produces a smooth, satin-like finish with superior edge quality – no metal contamination, distortion, fraying, cracking, or delamination. The narrow kerf width enables close nesting of parts and raw material savings, and it’s easy to pierce starter holes.

Since different jobs don’t require different tooling, there’s no need for costly and time-consuming tool changes. Multiple-head cutting and material stacking reduces overall unit cost and increases productivity. No other tool cuts or machines a greater variety of materials.

The Benefits of Waterjet Cutting

If you’ve ever used a saw in any capacity, you are undoubtedly aware of the amazing amount of heat the tool creates. Whether you are using a handsaw or a bandsaw, the friction heats both the blade and the material you’re cutting. For most applications, this isn’t a huge concern, but there are times when the heat generated by sawing can be hazardous to your materials.

While it may seem like something out of a science-fiction flick, waterjet cutting has, to a large extent, solved this problem. A water jet cutter uses extremely pressurized water to cut through everything from metal and wood to minerals. There are several variations of this machine, but they all offer the same advantage; precision cutting without excess heat.
