Why are waterjets ideal for metal cutting? What are the benefits of metal cutting with waterjet machinery?

Waterjet equipment is ideal for metal cutting for many reasons:

  • Lack of Heat-Affected Zone (HAZ)
  • Ability to cut harder materials such as Stainless Steel and Titanium
  • Ability to cut through thicknesses of more than 12”
  • Abrasive agents leave a smooth, polished edge with minimal kerf
  • Cost savings from preventing the need for secondary finishing and subsequent material damage
