Process: Water Cutting

Overview

Waterjet cutting can be used to profile a wide range of materials, including various metals, wood and plastic. It uses a jet of highly-pressurised water to cut the required profile. The water can also be mixed with abrasive materials, which is referred to as abrasive cutting. Capable of cutting thick sheet and plate, waterjet and abrasive cutting is a common profiling choice for manufacturers across a wide span of sectors, including industrial machinery, automotive, agriculture, aerospace and marine. Although waterjet cutting is not capable of achieving the same level of precision as laser cutting, it is ultimately more powerful and works well for the production of heavy-duty parts.
