CUTTING METHODS

Water jet cutting can be classified as a mechanical method.

The energy generated by the movement of the water at a speed three times higher than the speed of sound is utilised both for pure water cutting and for abrasive cutting and is then applied to the part being cut in order to produce micro-erosion.

Water jet cutting does not generate residual heat at the cutting edge and thus the physical properties of the material are not changed.

PURE WATER CUTTING

This method is suitable for cutting fabric, elastomers, fibres, plastics, food stuffs, paper and other materials and is based on the use of water pressure up to 6,500 bar with an equivalent speed  of 800-1000 m/sec, passing through a diamond orifice (with a diameter of tenths of a millimetre) targeted on the material to be cut.  In this way, the potential energy is converted into kinetic energy, resulting in a waterjet with speeds capable of cutting the material.

ABRASIVE CUTTING

With materials for which pure water cutting is not sufficient, abrasive cutting is required. Using this method, a fine grain abrasive material is added to the water. The union of water, air and abrasive takes place in the mixing chamber to further accelerate and focus it. The result of this method is the production of a powerful waterjet, with the capacity to cut, separate or perforate materials of varying thickness and density, such as metal, ceramics, natural stone or tempered glass, among others.
