Water jet cutting is a fast, precise and economical process for cutting complex shapes in a wide range of materials. The technology utilises high-pressure water jets to cut almost any material including foam, rubber, composites, metals, glass, stone and some plastics with superior accuracy and repeatability. The cutting process does not generate heat which prevents distortion of the substrate material, and the cutting process is clean with no hazardous particles or fumes.

The water jet cutting process is typically used for cutting straight and curved shapes in thick materials without the need for secondary machining processes. We can arrange for water jet cutting services for a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, medical, architectural, industrial and manufacturing.

Water Jet Cutting

What is a water jet cutter?

A water jet cutter, also known as a water jet or hydro jet, is an industrial tool used for cutting a wide variety of materials using a high-pressure stream of water and abrasive material. The process is similar to sandblasting but much more precise and accurate. Water Jet technology can be used to cut intricate shapes with micron-level precision and is also capable of cutting extremely thick materials. Water Jet cutters use a combination of high-pressure water and an abrasive material (typically garnet) to produce a very narrow and concentrated stream of water that can cut through almost any material. These machines are often used in industrial applications such as automotive, aerospace, medical device manufacturing, and many other industries where precision cutting is required. Water Jet machines are available in a variety of sizes and configurations to suit the needs of any application.

Advantages of Water Jet Cutting

Water jet cutting offers many advantages over traditional machining processes such as sawing and milling, including:

  • No heat-affected zone which eliminates distortion of the cut material
  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • Capable of cutting almost any material with minimal waste and no secondary processes
  • No hazardous fumes or particles
  • Quick turnaround times
  • Low capital investment

The high precision, versatility, and cost-effectiveness of water jet cutting make it an attractive alternative to traditional machining processes in many applications.
