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.
