Waterjet cutting is a type of material cutting where a jet of water or a mixture of water and water is used as a cutting tool instead of a cutter.
abrasive material emitted at high speed and under high pressure. In nature, such a process that occurs naturally is called water erosion.
- no thermal effects on the material (the temperature in the cutting zone is 60-90 ° C);
- significantly less material loss;
- a wide range of cut materials and thicknesses (up to 150-300 mm or more);
- high efficiency of cutting sheet materials with a thickness of more than 8 mm;
- no burnout of alloying elements in alloyed steels and alloys;
- no melting and burning of the material on the edges of the processed parts and in the surrounding area;
- the ability to cut thin-sheet materials in a package of several layers to increase productivity, including by reducing the idling of the cutting head;
- complete fire and explosion safety of the process;
- environmental cleanliness and complete absence of harmful gas emissions;
- high cut quality (edge roughness Ra 1,6).
