Abrasivejets and waterjets use high-pressure water to machine
any material. This is accomplished without applying heat to the cut
which is an extreme advantage to some steels used in the aerospace
or steels in the tool&die section that get hard when heat is
On the other hand, hard steels that had to be machined with grinders
also be cut with a waterjet. Metals are not the only materials to
from this technology though.
The water comes out of the nozzle at
psi. An abrasive is added to the water as it is expelled at this high
means that practically any material in the way of the water stream gets
cut as the water carries the abrasive by the material.Think of it as
meanest little piece of sandpaper in the world in a .030 round stream
water. The abrasive is called “garnet" which has sharp edges that
cut as they are carried in the water
We steer this stream with a CNC control so that simple roughing cuts can be made or complex shapes can be cut.
We can do a roughing cut or a finish cut.
Only your imagination limits the savings. Kerf Waterjet will be happy to talk to you about your idea to use our technology for your business or project.
