  • Cutting Vegetables

    When people typically think of cutting food, they picture a knife. This is what most use in homes as they are easily available and it is not difficult to do. However in food processing, where numerous items need to be cut over and over and over knife cutting can get very tiring, very quickly. Not to mention the fact that it is a slightly dirty method because it could transfer bacteria from one item to another. This is why a new method has been gaining popularity, mainly water jet cutting....

  • Recycling Water and Better Machining

    Across the world, recycling and finding ways to reduce environmental impact is gaining importance. World summits like the G-20 Summit try to address the problem, and environmentalists everywhere do what they can to get the word out. As the word has spread more and more industries are beginning to incorporate it into their daily routines. Not only can being environmentally friendly in business practices save the planet, but it can also help companies save money, making it beneficial to all. One way companies can join in is by switching to...

  • Water Jet Cutting VS Power Washing

    When my dad first bought his power washer, I used to offer to help power wash to help with the spring cleaning. I was allowed to help with the driveway and sidewalk basically anything I could not break or ruin. However, as it turns out, I could mess up these jobs too and was quickly fired. Why you might be wondering? Because I thought it was cool to power wash my name and various designs into the driveway. Nothing bad, but obviously was not really helping make them look clean...

  • Why Choose Water Jet Cutting

    Of all the many ways to cut material for manufacturing purposes, why should a customer choose a water jet cutting service? Every method has its positive and negative characteristics, and because of the modern technology involved in the water jet cutting process, its positives outweigh its negatives significantly. That is why it is becoming more and more popular in the industrial realm. Waterjet cutting machinery is able to do the same types of precise cutting and shaping of materials into products that heat intensive processes such as laser cutting and...

  • Enjoy the Advantages of Waterjet Cutting

    Waterjet cutting has evolved very quickly since the technology was invented in 1980; and research has led to waterjet machining services that accomplish more at lower costs. This means that the technology offers several advantages over other machining methods. Some of these advantages include reduced production and material costs, unmatched versatility, extensive capabilities, and it is complimentary to existing technology. Let's take a look at some specifics when it comes to these benefits. Cost is reduced by waterjet cutting because machines need minimal tooling and fixturing, which saves valuable time....

Industry Information

Waterjet Cutting

Water jet cutting is a cold cutting fabrication process that uses high pressure water nozzles to pierce a wide variety of materials and shape them. Flat or semi-flat materials like metal, glass, plastic, foam, marble, stone and wood are cut using either pure water or water mixed with abrasive particles like garnet or diamond for added strength. These are used on tougher materials like metal and stone.

Products cut using water jets have clean, smooth cuts without any burrs, and since no heat is used during processing, the material properties like temperature resistance and color are not altered. Depending on the strength of the material being cut and the desired rate of production, water jet cutter nozzles spray water at pressures between 30,000 and 90,000 pounds per square inch (PSI). The automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, food processing, lumber, architectural, building construction and electronic industries all use or manufacture products that go through the water jet cutting process during fabrication. Machinery components like gears, tiles and mirrors as well as car, train and plane components and stone flooring are often shaped by the water jet cutting process.

Most modern water jet cutting machines are fully automated and use CNC (computer numerical controlled) software to determine and control the route of the jet; the labor cost of water jet cutting processes can be low for this reason. A drawing of the desired shape or design is downloaded into CAD/CAM software, and the water jets follow its path. Close precision reduces waste and the need for secondary machining processes. It does not create any harmful dust or particles that workers could inhale, and it produces high volumes of products with minimal waste or scrap material. The water jet cutters are mostly made of stainless steel and contain a water reservoir, abrasive containers and a high pressure water pump with a nozzle attached. Both the water and any abrasives used are recycled many times through the machine. They are combined in a mixing tube, shot through a nozzle at high pressure and then re-circulated back into their separate storage areas. Water jet cutters are very effective and can cut many materials; the exceptions are brittle materials like some ceramic varieties as well as strong materials like diamond, which are too strong to be cut by water.
