Waterjet cutting

Waterjet cutting

- Wide range of processed materials

Waterjet cutting allows to process virtually any material regardless of its thermal and strength characteristics.
Processed materials: metals (ferrous and non-ferrous), stone, plastics, rubber, laminated fabric, laminated materials, wood, explosive and flammable materials, various metal alloys, etc.
Intended Use: precision engineering, processing industry, cutting of plastics and rubber, nuclear energy, design processing, etc.
- Highest quality of processing
The waterjet cutting technology ensures the highest quality of the processed parts. When using this technology there is no thermal effect on the material, which eliminates hardening of edges and deformation of parts.
- High processing precision
Small diameter of the jet (0.7-1.1 mm) and use of high-precision positioning systems enables to perform contour jobs with maximum precision resulting in maximum processing accuracy.

Waterjet cutting is a technology, which uses water jet under high pressure for the cutting of the material. Water is supplied by a powerful compressor, pre-mixed with abrasive particles used to increase the efficiency of the erosion component of the process. This technology is widely used to manufacture parts of various materials, and is preferable for materials, which are sensitive to high temperatures. Waterjet cutting has been widely applied in various industries.

Advantages of Waterjet Cutting

An important advantage of the waterjet cutting technology is the absence of thermal effects on the material during the cutting process. Absence of thermal effects ensures the unchangeability of physical properties of materials, it does not harden edges of the cut, eliminates distortion of the products. Waterjet cutting equipment is effectively suited for use in automated lines. The application of 3D processing allows to obtain high-precision products of complex shapes.

Waterjet cutting is a safe processing method. Water cutting does not produce harmful emissions and saves the sprocessed material (due to the possibility of obtaining a narrow cut).

One of the major advantages of the waterjet technology is the ability to process virtually any material. This property makes the technology of waterjet cutting indispensable in some technological processes and makes it applicable in virtually every industry.

Cutting metal

TThe technology of waterjet cutting of metal ensures a high quality of the surface with sufficiently thin links (about 0.5mm) in thick metal. For this process waterjet systems with taper compensation are used.

Cutting stone

Stone is a specific material in terms of processing, since thermal cutting methods are inapplicable for it. In this case, the technology of waterjet cutting of stone is practically the only method which allows high-precision contour cutting of stone.

Waterjet cutting of tiles and ceramic granite

Waterjet cutting has proven its effectiveness for cutting of tiles and ceramic granite, since it allows to produce complex panel pictures with high accuracy of contour reproduction.

Cutting glass

Contour cutting of glass is a difficult task due to the high fragility of the material. Waterjet cutting of glass ensures to safely process the glass of various thickness with high precision.
- Waterjet cutting is the most versatile cutting technology, allowing processing of virtually any material.
