Achieve High-Precision Cutting and Designing with Waterjet

By Nathan Syngrem Subscribe to RSS | November 29th 2011 | Views:

Water is a powerful medium and hence waterjet is a widely used technique to cut and design various mediums such as metal, glass, stone, wood etc. In this technique, water is mixed with certain refined abrasives to achieve the desired effect. This kind of cutting is suitable in almost every industry and is easy to use. But most importantly, it gives faultless results. This cutting method is also considered to be very environment friendly as it does not involve the use of heavy or damaging chemicals or gases.

So how does this really work? Essentially, this method involves releasing water under high pressure from a nozzle and moving it systematically on the medium to be cut or shaped. What makes it so precise is that this entire procedure is computer controlled which makes it very accurate and provides a smooth finish. Before this process starts, the design can be created and scanned and fed into the computer. This can be used to create intricate designs or just basic cutting. The biggest advantage of this sort of cutting is that it does not leave space for mistakes—it achieves perfection in the first attempt. This way, you can be sure that no material is wasted and time is also saved. All this translates into waterjet saving money too!

This method is especially useful in flooring inlays because it can be used to cut through different thickness and different layers as well. Since flooring is such a crucial part of construction, this type of cutting gives perfect results and a clean finish for stone, marble, granite and glass flooring. This sort of cutting does not produce a heat affected zone and the chances of burrs are very less. It is a dust free and odorless cutting process. Materials ranging from a thickness of .001 inches to 12inches can be cut using this method. Objects with very low tolerances used in architectural and construction projects that need to have complex designs, can be cut using this method. Since the results are already well-finished, there is no need for a secondary procedure on most of these materials. This saves costs on installing a secondary system to give finishing touches to the materials that have been cut. In that sense, this is a very cost-effective technique per inch.

When cutting softer materials, only a plain waterjet is used and for cutting the harder variety of materials, certain abrasives are added to the water to enable high-precision cutting tasks.

Considering all the factors, waterjet cutting is a highly useful technique. These days, you can easily avail waterjet services online.
