As highlighted in “Advantages and Disadvantages of Water Jet Cutting” by The Piping Mart, water jet cutting stands out as a powerful technology with applications across various industries. This method, championed for its unparalleled precision, offers cuts as fine as 0.005 inches (0.13 mm). The process employs high-pressure water streams combined with abrasives like garnet or aluminum oxide, enabling intricate designs and accurate shapes.
One of the remarkable advantages of water jet cutting is its versatility—capable of slicing through a wide range of materials, including metal, glass, stone, plastic, wood, foam, and rubber. Leveraging this capability ensures adaptability in production processes that involve diverse materials. Moreover, the absence of heat generation during water jet cutting expedites the process, eliminating the need for post-cutting cooling and distinguishing it from methods like laser or plasma cutting.
