What Are the Unique Advantages of Waterjet Cutting?
IRWaterjet offers high-pressure water-cutting metal equipment, providing many advantages over similar technologies such as plasma or laser cutting. A popular choice for many metal manufacturers and suppliers, waterjet cutters do not generate heat when used, can be used to precision cut a variety of metals in various thicknesses, help reduce material waste, and more.
No Heat-Affected Zone (HAZ)
A primary advantage to waterjet metal cutting is that no heat is generated when it is used during the cutting process. A no-heat-affected zone (HAZ) is critical when working with metal easily affected by heat, as some sensitive metal’s metallurgical properties will change when exposed to excessive temperatures.
Versatility of Waterjets
The versatility and adaptability of waterjets are also another reason they are valuable tools. There are many ways to use a waterjet, including cutting intricate shapes and designs. Waterjet can cut several metals, such as aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, and copper. Whether the metal cutting application includes cutting thin, thick, rigid, or soft metal, the versatility of using waterjet cutting technology is unparalleled.
Waterjet cutting metal is so accurate that it can achieve high precision, even with tolerances as constricted as 0.001 inches. When cutting complex shapes and designs, this ideal precision cutting will make all the difference, enabling you to cut metal components like gears, brackets, and frames.
Reduced Material Waste
Using a waterjet cutter over other metal-cutting technologies helps you cut very finely using a narrow stream of water, which helps reduce metal waste. This metal-cutting method is a more sustainable manufacturing process and saves you money. Similarly, waterjet’s environmentally friendly technology does not produce toxic fumes or use gas to work correctly.
