Waterjet technology experts from APW explain how ultra-high pressure waterjet systems work and answer many frequently asked questions about the technology. They also highlight the many applications for waterjet technology and discuss the benefits of waterjet versus other common cutting technologies.

HOW DO HIGH PRESSURE WATER JETS WORK?

Water jet cutting involves generating high pressures to force water through an orifice into a narrow, intense beam that can cut through a variety of materials. The nozzle, or orifice, typically used is made from a very hard mineral such as sapphire. However, more waterjets are using diamond as the orifice material to obtain better […]

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 […]
