WATER JET CUTTING
High pressure abrasive water jet cutting is a potential substitute for punching or plasma and laser cutting . One of the biggest advantages of this service is that the water jets inherit cold cutting methods . some thermal processes can cause surface hardening , warping and emission of hazardous gasses . Materials that are cut with a water jet undergo no thermal stress eliminating such undesirable results .
One of the biggest advantages of water jet cutting is the jets inherent col cutting quality . This allows materials to be cut that would normally be burned , melted or cracked by other cutting methods . Another major advantage is waterjet’s ability to cut fiber-reinforced materials, reflective materials, uneven surfaces and stacked layers of different materials.
Since the mechanical processes take place on a microscopic level, the contents and surface finish of the material are not critical factors. Very thick metals demonstrate another advantage of waterjet technology.
Practically no mechanical, heat induced or chemical influence on the workpiece
Virtually burr-free cut edges
Practically all types of material can be cut from shim upto 200mm thickness
Faster than many conventional cutting tools
Bridges and separating parts of less than 1mm can be manufactured without difficulty from stiff materials
Even complicated contours can be cut
Low loss of material
There is no need for holes to be prebored (except in the case of sandwich materials)
