For those not familiar with the technology, waterjet cutting is a process that using high-pressure water (45,000 to 55,000psi) containing an abrasive, such as garnet, to cut metal, glass, stone, and other products. The high-pressure water is forced through a small diameter nozzle onto the part being cut. The abrasive in the water actually does the cutting. The abrasive is not required for soft materials, such as rubber, etc.
The cutting nozzle movement is computer controlled, much like a cnc milling operation. The material to be cut is placed on a table under the nozzle and the computer drives the nozzle to cut the desired shape within the table size limits.
Warejet offers several advantages over more conventional machining:
No heat affected zone
No work hardened edges
Very complicated and intricate shapes can be cut
Nearly any material can be cut
Low scrap generation
