  • Water and Metal

    When I used to picture metal cutting, I would always picture incredibly heavy, large machining pieces. Basically the only way I could picture cutting metal was by using metal. However, I later learned that there are other ways to achieve metal cutting, and it is a very interesting process. One option that is becoming increasingly common is water jet cutting. Water metal cutting services are able to form the metals simply by using powerful water jet streams combined with some type of abrasive. Pure water jet streams are another way...

  • The Grand Canyon and Water Cutting

    Nature has always fascinated me. The great accomplishments it is able to make in forming the world in which we live. Take for example, the Grand Canyon. Considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon is a massive canyon located in Arizona in the United States. It is 277 miles long, can be up to 18 miles wide and can reach over a mile deep in some places! So how was such a gigantic and magnificent structure formed? Many probably remember learning about...

  • Water Jet Metal Cutting: For Heavy Duty Industries

    The major metallic element utilizing industries in our modern day market produce large scale items such as the automotive, aerospace, aviation, marine and manufacturing equipment industries. Numerous manufacturing processes enable them to produce these large metallic products, such as space shuttles, ships, commercial airplanes, semi-trucks, farming equipment like tractors and large drills presses, etc. however, there are many factors that play into which process each industry, or even individual company may choose. As far as expenses and environmental friendliness there is one process that rises above the rest; water jet...

Industry Information

Water Jet Metal Cutting

Water jet cutting is strong enough to cut through nearly any material, including metal. Abrasive particles must be used in addition to high pressure water in order to cut such strong and resistant material. Unlike pure water jet cutting, abrasive cutting uses particles of diamond or garnet because water alone is not strong enough. These, rather than the water pressure, erode the metal. The water jets are thirty times stronger than the pressure of a car wash nozzle to cut metals like titanium, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, iron and even hardened metals.

Water jet metal cutting produces little scrap or waste metal and is considered highly accurate. The aerospace, automotive, transportation, engineering and construction industries all use water jet cutting products made of metal. Cars, airplanes, trains, submarines and busses are all made of metal parts that got their shape from water jet cutting. Factory machinery, tools and all sorts of irregularly shaped metal parts are also cut by water jets. This process can create nearly any shape or design out of two dimensional metal sheets as thick as four inches. A select few machines can cut multiple layers or a single sheet that is up to ten inches thick.

Modern water jet cutting machines are fully automated and use CNC (computer numerical controlled) software. A designer's drawing is downloaded into software, which then follows it to cut the sheet metal to that shape. The sheet metal may be shaped into an intricate or unusual design or have holes rapidly drilled into it. This process generates no heat, which prevents the metal material's properties like color, strength and chemical resistance from being altered; for this reason, water jet cutting is considered a cold working process. It is safer since operators are not needed to the extent they are in other cutting processes, and no dust or particles that can be inhaled by workers are produced. Labor costs are therefore low. Water jet cutting is a fast process with a high rate of accuracy and repeatability; high volumes of products are made. The finished product requires little or no secondary processing because the cut has no burrs or rough edges. Wire EDM and plasma cutting are alternatives to water jet metal cutting, but they lack the accuracy and speed offered by water jets. These other processes all generate heat and therefore have a HAZ (heat affected zone) that may be changed or altered.
