MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR WATER JET CUTTING
A USEFUL & COST-EFFECTIVE MACHINE TOOL PROCESS
Use water jet cutters to cut virtually any material quickly and precisely in any shape or size including metals, stone, glass, wood and plastics.
Water jet cutting is a non-thermal cutting method using only natural sand and water to cut almost any material. The brittle cutting process give a smooth cutting surface with no slag or heat affected zones, and there is less need for post processing.
All materials can be cut by the same water jet machine, from soft rubber and plastics to the hardest metals and ceramics. A CNC operated water jet cutter ensures identical parts independent of volumes and with a minimum of waste material.
Below are just some of those materials, please select a material for more information and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us or give us a call on 01937 845 499.
