Water-jet technology uses an ultra-high pressure stream of water, forced through a cutting nozzle, to cut through nearly any type of material. Ultra-high water (only) pressure can cut softer materials such as foam and paper. When an abrasive agent, such as crushed garnet is added to the ultra-high pressure stream, hard materials such as stone, marble, granite, steel and titanium can be cut with a perfectly smooth edge.
Virtually any shape or design can be cut with high-pressure water-jet technology. Thin details, simple and larger block designs or holes bored through titanium all lend themselves easily to the computer-controlled abrasive water-jet cutting process. Finished edges are smooth with little or no need for further finishing.
Because the process uses cold water there is no heat distortion or mechanical stress on finished pieces.

Applications such as sprockets, gaskets, flywheels, flanges are some uses for waterjet cutting. Other examples include automotive applications, tooling applications and a multitude of other industrial uses.
Uses a high velocity stream of abrasive suspended in a stream of Ultra High Pressure Water (30,000 - 90,000 psi) which is produced by a Waterjet Intensifier Pump.
It uses a large array of materials, including heat-sensitive, delicate or very hard materials.
Produces no heat damage to work piece surface or edges.
Produces a taper of less than 1 degree on most cuts, which can be reduced or eliminiated entirely by slowing down the cut process of using a dynamic waterjet head.
