Water jet cutting

A water jet cutter is a machine tool for cutting materials using a high-pressure water jet. The cutting efficiency, at three times the speed of sound, is further increased by adding a (natural) abrasive.

Advantages

No heat-affected zones, no increased hardness, no stresses, no cracks, no deformation of the material, no structural changes, low environmental impact (no dust, smoke or fumes), low kerf, small amounts of removed material and thus good utilisation, low tangential forces on the workpiece, fast prototype production, no dripping slag or molten material, can be used universally, high edge quality.

Technical Data

6000 bar, thus a water jet speed of over 3,500 km/h
Cutting table size: 2,000 x 7,200 mm
Material thicknesses of 100 mm can be cut easily
