Waterjet cold cut cube
Plasma cut cube
Plasma cut surface
- Cold cutting without thermal influences
- Flexible and precise processing of nearly all materials
- Maximum material usage thanks to minimal, burr-free, part
interspacing and part-in-part (nested) production
- Stress free processed parts due to multi-head and multi-layer
- No tooling required
- No costs for tooling storage
Waterjet cutting systems are flexible in the processing of a
wide variety of shapes and a nearly-unlimited variety of materials.
Cutting is extremely precise without thermal effects on the material.
Cold cut edges as created during cutting with a waterjet, are
free of burrs and structural impairment.
The versatility of the waterjet allows it to be used in nearly
every industry. There are many different materials that the waterjet
can cut. Some of them have unique characteristics that require
special attention when cutting. Each material cut will have some
unique characteristics that have to be taken into account.
Materials commonly cut with waterjet
include rubber, foam, plastics, composites, stone, tile, metals,
food, paper and much more. The only materials that cannot be cut
with waterjet are tempered glass, diamonds and certain ceramics.
Water jet benefits over plasma cutting
Cold-cut edges, as created during cutting with a waterjet, are
free of burrs and structural impairment as can be seen in the
water jet cold cut cube pictured above.
The heat transfer during laser, plasma, and torch cutting changes
the structure. The edge melts and burrs are formed. The diffence
between plasma and waterjet cut surfaces are demonstrated in the
two graphics on the left and right.
