Advantages of having parts cut by waterjet:
- Elimination of tool cost for small volume and prototype work
- Minimal kerf width of 0.010 to 0.030 depending on nozzle size.
- No heat thermal distortion or degradation of materials
- No noxious gases
- Part accuracy of ±0.005
The waterjets cut at five different quality levels. A material will be cut the fastest at quality one, while best edge quality at quality five. Here is a visual example of material cut at different settings:
