State-of-the-art Waterjet used for cutting purposes
We use a water jet cutter also known as waterjet for our cutting processes. As the name suggests a waterjet is a machine that uses a two-dimensional high-pressure stream of water along with an abrasive substance to cut through metal. We use high quality Garnet Abrasive specifically manufactured for waterjets in order to obtain optimum performance.
- 2001 Flow International Waterjet– Abrasive waterjet cutting uses water pressurized to 60,000 psi, with a garnet abrasive entrained in the jet stream. The water is forced through a precision orifice 0.013” in diameter. The water and abrasive mixture quickly and precisely cut materials with accuracies of up to 0.001”. A cold-cutting tool, abrasive waterjet leaves a surface free of a heat-affected zone. Waterjets can also be a more cost-effective alternative because jobs that may normally take several hours to complete can be cut in just minutes. Plus, time required for setup and fixturing is minimal with the waterjet, which is beneficial in short-run jobs.
