A distinction is made between waterjet cutting with pure water and abrasive cutting, in which the addition of a powdered material enables the cutting of hard materials such as steel stone, glass, etc.
The pressure is generated by a special high-pressure pump and then fed to the cutting head via a corresponding piping system. In abrasive cutting, an abrasive is added to the water jet in a mixing chamber and introduced into the water jet by means of a focusing tube.
Pure water cutting is suitable for soft and tough materials such as plastic films, paper, fibrous materials, food, rubber and the like. Higher cutting speeds can be achieved than with abrasive cutting. This is especially suitable for hard materials such as metal, stone, plastics, glass, etc. There is almost one material that cannot be cut with waterjet. Cutting thicknesses of up to 230mm are possible.
