Tag Archives: waterjet tolerance

80% of world’s abrasive waterjet have kerfs around ±0.003 inch or looser. Others may have kerfs around ±0.0005 inch to ±0.001. With Waterjet technology, the tolerances will be sharper.

Huge Opportunities in Water Jet Machining Microsize Parts

Waterjet nozzle technology has advanced to the point where the machining of parts and part features smaller than 0.012 in. is now possible. Metal fabricators, like all manufacturers, are seeing growing demand for smaller parts and assemblies required for compact, lighter, energy-efficient products. Abrasive water jet machining is evolving to assist in producing these types of […]

How much is the max thickness if I want to cut steel?

There are two limits about max thickness. One is practical limit, the other one is physical limit. The practical limit means for most materials, the condition is about 100mm thick. If the metal thicker than that thickness, the tolerances will be dropped and the machining time will be increased. For some projects, like cutting titanium, […]
