Water Jet Cutting . . .
Just How Does It Work?

Are You a "Newbie" to this Fantastic Water Jet Cutting Technology?

How does it work you say?

I will give you the quick and simple version. For a more detailed explanation, check out Water Jet Cutters.

Putting it simply, the process of cutting with a water jet forces a large volume of abrasive water through a small orifice causing the particles to accelerate. This acceleration of focused particles on the material being cut erodes the material until it is separated.

What is the abrasive that does the cutting? It is typically garnet, a sand that is very hard. The same type of sand that is glued to most sandpaper.

This process leaves a nice sand blasted finish on the cut edge. This is important to note, because some cutting methods require a secondary process just to finish the cut edge. Of course, that would be more cost.

Also important to note, the cut is typically made under water and therefore does not produce the heat that other processes do. Why is heat an issue? There are many reasons, but the foremost would be that it changes the molecular structure of many of the materials being cut.

Water Jet pressures range between 45,000 to 90,000 pounds per square inch, depending on the make and model of the machine.

The material to be cut is typically placed on a bed of vertical steel slats, above a big tank of water. These materials can range in thickness from very thin foils to 10 inch thick aluminum. This Water Jet Cutting Machine can cut almost any material!

One of the greatest water jet advantages is the speed in set up time. Water jet projects can be designed and cut in a relatively short time period.

It is a perfect fit for the home hobbyist, prototyper, and the low or high production manufacturer.

It uses Computer Numerical Controls (CNC) along with Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software for a very precise cut.

These machines can be purchased in the range of $150,000 to $250,000, depending on the brand of the machine, and the options specified.
