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.

Waterjet, Laser, or EDM… or Another Option?

For the most part, it’s perfectly okay to make broad generalizations about technology. Milling is faster than EDM; shrink-fit holders offer better runout than collet chucks; a spindle not turning is a spindle not making money. A set of widely held assumptions can provide a common foundation that enables talking about—and also writing about—complex topics […]

An introduction to waterjet cutting

Cutting steel, concrete, glass and marble with water – sounds a bit far-fetched doesn’t it? Way back in the 1950s, a forestry engineer by the name of Norman Franz started fiddling around with a high-pressure water stream to cut lumber. His aim was to streamline the process and reduce the strain on traditional cutting equipment […]

Compare Water jet Cutting, Laser Cutting and Plasma Cutting

Laser cutting technology has two main advantages and is preferred. Using this technology, the job will be completed much faster than other methods. This is important for aerospace or automotive sectors where provision of laser cut parts is an integral part of the large projects. It indicates that plane or car reach market much earlier […]

All-Powerful Water Jet Co., LTD. Products Introduction

Ultra-high pressure waterjet is an industrial tool that using a stream of high pressure water for cutting purpose. The cutting theories can be explained as a form of micro erosion that a large volume of water go through a small orifice in the nozzle. The water traveling through a reducing narrow orifice by a constant […]

Why Water Jet Cutting Services Is Important

Original title: Importance of water jet cutting services in your industry When you need to cut metal to create components water jet cutting services are very important. To cut the metal the water flow should have to be normal it should not be more or less only in that case the cutting will be meaningful […]

Uses of Water Jet Machines in Various Industries

Water Jet is a common term that is used by many to describe machinery that uses high-pressure water in cleaning or cutting purposes. A subcategory of waterjet is called abrasivejet, which simply implies that abrasive is introduced into the system, accelerating it further. For applications that do not use abrasive, they take on the terms […]

Understanding Water Jets Cutting Systems

Waterjet cutting systems are much like other shape cutting systems utilizing computer controlled motion, post processing of tool paths, and multi-head configurations. Water jet machines can cut any known material including composite, laminates, plastics, rubbers, castings, forging, aluminum, stainless steels, hardened or tool steel, exotic alloys, heat sensitive materials, synthetics, and any materials that may […]

Waterjet Cutting Overview

Although water is very normal in our life, it also is very important for us. Therefore, correctly using water is very necessary. Aside from using in traditional home chores, water is also used to produce energy like widely known as hydroelectricity. Water is also widely utilised in manufacturing and processing of various materials in current […]

Waterjet Pressures Are Increasing, And So Is Productivity

With its new X-Stream xP90-100 Waterjet Intensifier Pump, Jet Edge Waterjet Systems is able to reach higher pressures “than we were able to achieve with previous models,” says Jeff Schibley, Great Lakes regional manager. Pressure is not all that important until a job shop is trying to produce parts better, faster and less expensively than […]
