1. No material limitations
Waterjet cutting is versatile applicable, cutting nearly any material; composites, plastics, metals, glass, stone or rock, ceramics, and rubber. With the addition of a granular abrasive, a waterjet cutting machine can perform quality cuts on materials up to 120 mm thickness.
2. No Heat Affected Zone (HAZ)
A major advantage of waterjet cutting is that no heat-affected zone (HAZ) occurs due to its cold cutting method. Not only does cold cutting enable clean cuts, but it also increases the operators’ safety significantly by eliminating the risks of burns.
3. No material distortion
Through its cold cutting method, the heat exposure can be bypassed, which is especially critical for materials like metal, leading to a fine cut without distortion in the material. This results in a smooth and burr-free cut.
4. No additional finishing process
The immediate high cutting quality ensures a precise result, avoiding an additional finishing process. This significantly accelerates the cutting process and saves time, increasing the overall efficiency.
5. No hazardous waste
The growing importance of environmentally friendly processes throughout the industries is becoming more apparent. A significant advantage of waterjet cutting is that it does not create any hazardous waste in the form of fumes and gases, unlike other cutting technologies.
6. Cost Saving
Waterjet requires minimal fixturing and tooling so you can save valuable time on your shop floor. Waterjet cut accurate, clean edges that allow for tight nesting and reduced scrap — saving you money through greater material utilization and waterjet has helped many clients in reducing their cost up to 5%-20%.
