Water jet Cutting

Water jet cutting is suitable for various types of materials. It is based on the intense hydro-erosive effect of a narrow, high-pressure water stream. The main advantage of water jet cutting is the fact that it does not create a heat-affected zone in the material, meaning it does not affect the internal structure and related properties. Thanks to the cold cutting process, this method is suitable for cutting heat-sensitive materials such as thermoplastics, laminates, teflon, various alloys, soft metals and more. Water jet cutting can also be used to cut multilayer materials and composites. Additionally, it allows for efficient material utilization, as the width of the cut ranges from 0.1 to 1.5 mm. There are no harmful byproducts generated during cutting, making it an environmentally friendly technology.
