An Industry-Wise Look at the Uses of Waterjet Cutting

When it comes to cutting metals, plastics, stones and several other types of materials, using heat based cutting methods is not always recommended. A much better idea would be to use a waterjet that doesn’t pollute, create heat affected zones and doesn’t even interfere with the properties of the metal being cut. This process involves using a highly pressurized jet of water through an extremely narrow nozzle. In many instances, you might find that abrasive powders are mixed with the water to enhance its cutting capabilities. This and several other advantages have made this cutting method so popular in the last few years.

Today, you will find that this method is used widely in a number of industrial sectors ranging from the automobile and aerospace sector to the valve manufacturing and fabrication sector. And with the passage of time, there are new and innovative uses of waterjet cutting being employed. In this article, we shall give you an overview of how this cutting and machining method can be used with different materials:

Glass: This material is highly fragile and the slightest mistake can lead to the entire sheet getting cracked. Hence, it is extremely important to apply just the right amount of pressure at just the right place. So, a jet of water doesn’t just help you to cut glass for decorative purposes, but also for industrial and medical uses. You can use it for cutting and drilling ballistic glass or hurricane glass.

Paper: You might think that something as thin as paper shouldn’t really require the use of such an advanced material. However, cutting and slicing large paper rolls and tissue rolls is a highly laborious process that takes hours if carried out manually. On the hand, using a waterjet, the same process can be carried out in a matter of seconds. You can also integrate a water-based cutting device with other regular threading device.

Food sector: Handling food calls for a high amount of hygiene and bacteria-free processes. There couldn’t be a faster and cleaner cutting technique for meats, vegetables and dairy products than a jet of water. Vegetables, fruits and meats can be easily chopped using this process. These can then be either packaged or processed further. Waterjet cutting assures cleanliness. High pressure jets of water are also often used for cleaning food and beverage production facilities.

Metal working: Since metals are used in very critical processes, achieving tight tolerances is extremely important. In fact, in some cases you might need to adhere to tolerance requirements of 0.001” of an inch. A waterjet doesn’t leave behind any mechanical stress, heat affected zones or heat distortion. Metal sheets up to 8 inches thick can be cut using this method.
