Abrasive Water Jet Cutting is a sophisticated modern technique for cutting soft materials like paper through to the hardest substances such as titanium, ceramics, steel and granite. At the K Cut factory our latest generation equipment can even cut through bullet-proof glass!
The process utilises water and abrasives that are pressurised to create a 'beam' of fluid that will cut through almost any material. Inside K Cut's Abrasive Waterjet Cutting system, water is pressurised up to 4000 bar (60,000 psi) and a powder form abrasive is added to the mix, this is then forced through a directional nozzle onto the surface being cut. It is the abrasives within the solution that ensure the cut is swift and smooth with minimal edge burring and no material deformation.
At K Cut we provide a high tech service for Abrasive Water Jet Cutting. Once a design is transferred into the system's computer a fine abrasive water jet cuts around the shape at ultra high pressure. Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology is at the heart of the process of Abrasive Water Jet but we can work from just a simple sketch, developing your concept into a computer-generated detailed drawing for approval.
