Waterjet Offers Eco-Friendly and Economical Cutting Solutions

By Prince Subscribe to RSS | July 31st 2012 | Views:

A waterjet is a very high-pressure stream of water that contains enough force to cut through different materials. Depending on the strength of the jet of water, materials such as plastics, fiber, stone, and even metals can be cut or shaped. For this cutting process to be effective, the jet of water needs to be pressurized at around 50,000psi or higher. The cutting process that is carried out using a pressurized jet of water is referred to as waterjet cutting. This cutting technique is used in several different types of industries.

For softer materials, the use of plain water is sufficient. However, for harder materials, certain abrasives are usually added to the water to enhance its cutting or slicing abilities. Since small jets of water are forced through a small nozzle or orifice, very little water is used. This and many more reasons make this cutting technique very popular among various industries. For instance, the use of water for cutting doesn’t lead to the creation of heat affected zones (HAZs). The use of heat can distort the material that needs to be cut, leading to further complications. But such problems are completely eliminated with the use of a waterjet.

Here are some of the common uses of this cutting technique:

• Woodworking: Sculpting, shaping and cutting wood is a task best carried out with a high-pressure jet of water. This ensures very clean cuts and contours. In fact the finish is known to be so fine and neat that additional finishing processes such as sanding can be completely done away with. Imagine the amount of time and resources that this saves the user.

• PCBs: One can use jets of water for cutting and etching boards to create the circuitry pathways. Using a very fine jet minimizes the wastage of materials. This smooth and vibration-free cutting process does not damage the components that have already been installed on the PCB.

• Cutting meat and vegetables: In the food and beverage sector, you shall find waterjet being used for slicing, chopping and cutting fruits and vegetables. It can also be effectively used for cutting meats in a clean and hygienic manner. A water jet doesn’t distort the shape of the food product. This cutting technique has also been effectively used for cutting food products such as bread.

• Artwork: A number of artists make use of waterjet cutting in creating artwork such as mosaics, sculptures, installation art and engraving. It is a clean cutting method that is also economical, making it popular among the art fraternity.

Thus, it is clear that the use of waterjet isn’t limited to just industrial or construction use. There are a myriad of cutting solutions that are offered by this environment friendly cutting technique.
