Waterjet Cutting Process
Waterjet cutting is the process of high pressure water being forced through a small nozzle producing an extremely clean and precise cut. An advantage of waterjet cutting is that it allows parts to be tightly nested maximizing yields. Waterjet technology offers extremely accurate cuts of complex and intricate parts, efficient use of materials and less compression distortion. Another benefit of waterjet cutting is that it is an excellent method for producing prototype and test parts or short production runs. Our waterjet cutting capabilities offers fast, flexible and accurate methods of cutting including complex parts while maintaining the integrity of the material.
Advantages of Waterjet Cutting
- Avoids heat and stress of the material, ensuring the highest structural integrity
- No tooling cost
- Clean cuts with high tolerances
- Cutting material too thick to cut by means of die cutting
- Quick turnarounds
- Nested cutting arrangements for better material yield
- Cuts materials that laser cutting cannot
- Prototyping parts to later be die cut in volume production
