Waterjet

 

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:
