Fast Facts:

  • Waterjet Cutting has properties unlike other cutting methods:
    • NO HAZ (Heat Affected Zones) – this is very useful for cutting tool steel and other metals where heat could change the properties of the metal.
    • Safe – unlike grinding, waterjet cutting minimizes the dust or particles that could be harmful when inhaled.
    • Kerf width in waterjet cutting is very small and little material is wasted.
    • It minimizes the burr or rough edge and may eliminate secondary machining operations.
