The process of waterjet cutting is actually pretty simple. Water is pressurized to 60,000 PSI, and then forced through a small orifice in the cutting head. Inside a mixing tube, abrasive is combined with the high pressure water, creating an abrasive stream that exits the nozzle at about 1.5 times the speed of sound. Almost any material, including metal, glass, composites, gasket material, Marble, stone etc., can be processed using waterjet technology, allowing for a broad set of capabilities for users. Waterjet is a clean process environmentally, with no heat or chemical fumes to disburse. Compared to any other cutting technology, waterjet provides the best in flexibility and overall capability.
