Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

  • Abrasive machines utilize an abrasive, typically garnet, that is added to the cutting stream.
  • The abrasive strengthens and accelerates the erosion process.
  • Whether or not abrasive is used is dependent on the type of material that is being cut
  • Water-only waterjets are perfect for thin, flexible materials such as foam, rubber, plastic, and even certain food items.
  • Abrasive waterjets are used to cut through all types of metal including steel, aluminum, and titanium, as well as a slew of other hard materials including stone, composites, and even glass.
  • Abrasive waterjets are more costly to operate requiring about 1 pound of garnet per minute
  • Nozzles may also need replacing more frequently than water-only machines.
