A distinction is made between the following two cutting processes
- Abrasive: for metals and hard materials – An abrasive agent is added to the cutting jet, allowing components with a large material thickness to be cut.
- Pure water: for gaskets, foam and plastics – Very fine cutting jet and no component contamination
With pressure from 4,000 – 6,000 bar
With water pressure up to 6,000 bar, an extremely precise cutting jet is generated. This can cut almost all materials in material thicknesses up to more than 300mm, without deformations in the cutting area. There are no heat effects in the materials, which means that no stresses or distortions occur. The process is suitable for workpieces made of all metals, plastics, carbon, rubber, sandwich panels and many others.
For example, do you still need weld seam preparation on your components? Then you may be interested in our 3D waterjet cutting or our subsequent mechanical processing.
