What is a Waterjet Machine Shop?
In its most basic terms waterjet machine shops supply their customers with the ability to use their services to create parts. A waterjet machine uses high pressurized water combined with sand to cut through any material. One of the biggest strengths a waterjet shop has is its versatility. Therefore, waterjet shop has the ability to get into a number of different industries and aid in the manufacturing process.
Waterjet Technology is fastest growing method for cutting worldwide.
Waterjet technology is actually a simple process of pressurizing a water stream through a very small nozzle. Once the water is shot through this small orifice. After that it creates a very high PSI resulting in a waterjet stream. In most cases waterjet machines will use and intensifier to help get PSI levels to 50,000 - 90,000! The high pressured water is then combined with abrasives (fine grit sand) this results in one the most powerful cutting methods on the planet.
