Waterjet Cutters

Industrial machinery that forces a high pressure stream of water through a small, targeted opening for the purpose of clean, precise cutting by means of erosion. Within the waterjet cutter industry, there are two common terms used to describe the type of waterjet cutter that is employed, the “Abrasive Waterjet” and the “Pure Waterjet.” The term “Abrasive Waterjet” denotes a waterjet cutter system that makes use of an added abrasive agent to increase cutting power and accelerate the cutting process. Meanwhile, the phrase “Pure Waterjet” is used to signify a waterjet cutter that does not use an abrasive agent in addition to its high velocity water stream. Abrasive Waterjets are typically used to cut harder materials such as stainless steel and titanium, while softer materials such as wood, food products, and plastics are cut with a Pure Waterjet. Waterjet cutters are perform exceptionally well across many industries, and are considered most favorable in those industries which require the cutting of heat-sensitive materials. This is due to the fact that waterjet cutters do not cause the post-cutting material damage that is common to other cutting methods such as laser and plasma cutters.
