The process of Waterjet cutting is fast gaining prominence due to its versatile and reliable approach. It does not involve any use of noxious gases or liquids. The procedure is environment friendly as it does not create hazardous materials or vapors. No heat effected zones or mechanical stresses are left on a waterjet cut surface. Water jet cutting has proved with its efficiency that it can give satisfactory results which other technology cannot. It can cut stone, glass or other material with finest accuracy and can also create different designs on the surface.
It is a unique technology with no adverse effects. It can be touted as the best alternative for laser cutting, flame cutting and plasma cutting. Even the material edge on which water jet cutting is performed is not distorted and is free of stresses.
It is an economical way to cut shapes of almost any complexity, in a very wide range of materials with no tooling costs. The unique process usually eliminates the need for secondary finishing processes.
Whether its metal or any other material, waterjet cutting is the most ideal solution. Seeing the advantages of waterjet cutting various sectors including automotive, military, aerospace, tile, stone cutting, food, textiles, rubber, foam, glass, and much more. Computer Numerical Control better known as CNC is also implemented in waterjet cutting. In this the user is required to sketch the design to which the material needs to be cut and the software for the CNC water jet cutting process follows it to cut the material to that particular shape. It results in smooth edges and hence does not need any finishing. There are various companies that offer the service of waterjet cutting.
Before finalizing the service provider it is very important to check the authenticity of the company and their track record as well. Hydro Lazer is one such company that offers high quality waterjet cutting services. With 30 years of experience Hydro Lazer has served different clients spread over various industries with ease and efficiency in waterjet services.
I’d like to cut some designs in aluminum diamond plate and I was curious to know if a with a laser or plasma torch could do the job. I know a waterjet works pretty well, but the price of the machine is currently not in my budget. Thanks!
