Water Jet, Water Jet Cutter, Water Cutter at APW

A water jet cutter, also known as a water jet or waterjet, is an industrial tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance. The term abrasivejet refers specifically to the use of a mixture of water and abrasive to cut hard materials such as metal or granite, while the terms pure waterjet and water-only cutting refer to waterjet cutting without the use of added abrasives, often used for softer materials such as wood or rubber.

Waterjet cutting is often used during fabrication of machine parts. It is the preferred method when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods. Waterjet cutting is used in various industries, including mining and aerospace, for cutting, shaping, and reaming.

Are you aware of the importance of waterjet cutting services?

Are you aware of the importance of waterjet cutting services? The need of Waterjet cutting services arises, when metal needs to be cut for, creating something. As we are holding discussions on cutting metal, so it should be mentioned here that the flow of water, for cutting metal is very important. When water flow will […]

Waterjet Cutting and It’s Emerging Uses in Different Industries

Conventionally, there have been several machining methods used for cutting and shaping metals and glass. However, a waterjet has emerged as one of the most preferred techniques simply because it offers precise cutting, cost-effectiveness and a clean process. This procedure entails accelerating a jet of pressurized water through a fine nozzle. The water that flows out […]

Waterjet Cutting Use In The Aerospace Industry

Waterjet Cutting, a method in which a stream of water is enforced via a small nozzle at a very good pressure, offers numerous exceptional potentials and benefits that allow cutting of materials and parts often considered very costly or even impossible with other processes such as laser and die cutting. By bringing into the water […]

Benefits of Waterjet Cutting

In terms of reducing metal you’ll find numerous ways to achieve the task. Some are as basic and crude as being a hack noticed. Other people are a lot more technical like lasers and plasma tools. The disadvantage to each one of these though is you’ll find downsides. These variety from the warmth from the […]


Waterjet cutting is a process that uses a stream of water at a very high pressure to cut hard materials quickly and accurately. There are numerous benefits that come along with the use of water jet technology in your industrial or construction business. By using waterjet parts, a worker is able to cut precise and […]


For a waterjet, water quality and temperature have a direct impact on operating cost, overall life and productivity. If water quality is low or the temperature is high, a waterjet owner can experience reduced life in virtually any part of the pump that comes into contact with the water. This can include high-pressure seals, plungers, […]
