  • Pure Water Jet Cutting: Drinkable Water

    Although I'm sure that no employee in a water jet cutting facility would drink the water being used in pure water jet cutting machines, they could if they wanted to. With no abrasives added, pure water jet cutting was the original water jet cutting system. Although it is ordinary water, as ordinary as the water sold for three dollars a bottle in a restaurant or movie theatre, it is able to pierce through soft materials with intricate detail when enough pressure is applied. Isn't it amazing what water can do?...

  • High Pressure Water Cutting: For Tough Cutting Precision

    There are materials that must be shaped into products with precision and speed, which can be a difficult task without warping the material in some way or being less then precise and slow. Laser cutting, for example, is able to be exact in where it makes a cut but because of the intense heat can cause discoloration or other forms of material damage that renders the substance unusable. All levels of water jet cutting eliminate the threat of material damage when used instead of heat cutting processes. High pressure water...

Industry Information

High Pressure Water Cutting

High pressure water cutting is able to form, shape and design products out of almost any material, including ceramics, foam, marble, plastic and glass. Even metal and stone are cut using water jets. For applications like this, the water is mixed with abrasive particles made of garnet or diamond. As well, machines sometimes use high pressure jets to cut through hard substances.

Standard water jets have a constant stream of water that shoots out at pressures between 30,000 to 90,000 PSI. Some high pressure water cutters, however, have nozzles with jets as strong as 120,000 PSI, which propel water at twice the speed of sound. It also increases cutting speeds by up to 20 percent, thus quickening output times, which is important for applications where repeatability and mass production are applied. Using high pressure in combination with abrasive particles to cut harder materials is a popular alternative to plasma cutting, sawing and welding. It produces a clean, smooth cut with no rough edges or burrs. Modern machines are fully automated and use CNC (computer numerical controlled) software that allows for high precision, accuracy and detail. Assigning a computer to control a water jet cutting process not only ensures high levels of manufacturing precision, but it also reduces labor costs. Technical staff are only necessary for the setup, programming, monitoring and repair of equipment in many cases.

High pressure water cutting machines, which are referred to as ultra high pressure water jet cutters, obtain such high pressures by using intensifiers, which are pumps that use hydraulics to create extremely high pressure. Hydraulic systems harness the power of water moving at a fast pace and convert it to mechanical energy. To quicken the rate of the cutting process, many water jet cutters use multiple cutting heads. Most high pressure cutting machines have the ability to switch back and fourth between standard and high powered operation levels. For those that operate mainly on ultra high pressure, cylinders and end caps are not threaded, which prevents the formation of cracks. The intensifier pumps use hydraulic accumulators that reduce wear and tougher center sections, piston seals and wear rings, which increase the machine's lifespan and reduce the probability of leaking. High pressure machines tend to be much louder than standard water jet cutters, and are often equipped with a soundproof casing.
