Waterjet Cutting Applications

Waterjet Cutting Applications

Waterjet technology is one of the fastest-growing precision machine processes. A wide range of industries can benefit from the precision and efficiency provided by waterjet cutting applications. It’s a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable approach. Read on to learn about the many applications of waterjet cutting technology.

Waterjet Cutting of Glass

Waterjet is the solution for streamlining the cutting of glass. It pierces through most thicknesses and can be used for mirrors, window panels, tabletop inlays, frameless shower screens, and more. It’s fast and produces exceptional edge quality.

Waterjet Cutting of Stone and Tile

Cutting ceramic and porcelain with conventional equipment can be a slow process. Abrasive waterjet cutting machines are ideal for cutting marble, tile, stone, porcelain, and ceramics. Waterjet cutting provides the highest production rates for stone fabricators.

Waterjet Cutting of Metal

If you’re looking for a versatile and efficient way to cut metal, look no further than waterjet. It’s ideal for cutting standard and exotic metals such as mild and stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, titanium. It’s a cold cutting process so there are no heat-affected zones.

Other Waterjet Cutting Applications

There are so many applications that can benefit from waterjet cutting. When cutting foam, rubber, circuit boards, plastic, insulation, or fiberglass, it’s a fast process and there’s little material waste. It can even cut food products including meat products and vegetables. This process reduces the risk of cross-contamination that can be caused by cutting with blades.

Waterjet Cutting for a Variety of Industries

So many different industries can and do benefit from waterjet cutting. Abrasive waterjet cutting is used in the aerospace industry, providing exceptional quality on items such as turbine blades and wing sections. In the automotive industry, the waterjet can be integrated with robotic systems. The defense and military industry depends on waterjet cutting for bulletproof glass and armor plating.
