What Is a Waterjet Cutter?
A waterjet cutter is a versatile industrial tool that can be used to cut a wide variety of wear resistant steels and other materials such as wood and glass. The waterjet cuts through material by combining a very high-pressure jet of water with fine particles of garnet (60,000 to 90,000 psi). This combination “gouges out” or removes tiny particles of the wear resistant steel, which effectively makes the cut. Water alone with no garnet can be used to cut softer material such as wood, plastic or rubber. (more…)
