Waterjet Cutting

Dynamic Waterjet Cutting for all materials using the latest machines. Phone us on 01708 689658 for more information.

We now have a 4 x 2m dynamic head Waterjet. This Waterjet cutter was the first in the countrya and has a high-pressure direct-drive pump. At 4100 bar (60,000 psi), the dynamic Waterjet cutter cuts through virtually any material and the direct drive means means its quicker and cheaper.  t.

Other features are dynamic cutting, where the Waterjet cutter changes the angle of the head to give the fastest cut around corners whilst keeping the cut edge square. The accuracy of the cut depends on the thickness of the material, but the general tolerance is +/- 0.2mm for premium quality.

Waterjet cutting has advantages over other cutting processes:

  • Waterjet vs. Laser cutting - Waterjet cutting can cut almost any material and it cuts thicker materials than a laser cutter can i.e. up to 150mm thick. Also there is no Heat Affected Zone (HAZ).
  • Waterjet vs. Plasma/Gas cutting - accuracy is greater with Waterjet cutting and the cut quality is better. 
  • Waterjet vs. Machining  Because a Waterjet cutter is very fast the process works out cheaper but on the downside it's not as accurate as machining. We can “rough out” parts on the Waterjet and for high accuracy they can be CNC machined later. This method means that the part is almost complete and only a small amount of additional machining is required which helps reduce the cost of each part dramatically.
