CNC Water jet Cutting

cnc-water-jet-cutting-machineWe also have Milestone water jet cutting machine, one of the top water jet cutting machines in the market.

The water jet cutter is capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.

Water jet cutting is often used during fabrication of machine parts. It is the preferred method when the material being cut is sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods.

What is Water Jet Cutting?

water-jet-cutter-headWater jet Cutting is a method of cutting materials using a jet of water. This can be done utilizing water only for soft/less dense materials such as foam or by adding an abrasive to the water jet for cutting hard/dense materials such as tool steel. The water is forced through a precision orifice, or jewel, to create a well-defined stream of water. This stream of water is typically produced under pressures of 40,000 to 60,000 PSI (pounds per square inch). For comparison, the water pressure in the house is about 60 PSI (pounds per square inch).
