Advantages of Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

Water-jet cutting by Perfect Edge offers distinct advantages over other cutting technologies.

  • No heat input means no burning or heat-affected zone as with laser cutting
  • Changing materials is handled by a change in cutting speed – not by changing complex process parameters such as gases or optics
  • Dynamic water-jet cutting provides nearly the same accuracy as wire EDM at a fraction of the cost and speed
  • Abrasive water-jet has a lower cost than milling and holes can be cut in one pass
  • Abrasive water-jet cutting leaves no dross, eliminating the need for secondary operations
  • Parts can be closely nested during cutting, saving time and material costs
  • Water-jets can make very thin, intricate cuts. The width of the cuts is about 0.06″ for abrasive water-jet cutting and 0.007″ for water only cutting

A Full Complement of CAD Capabilities

Perfect Edge offers full Computer Aided Design services to complement the water-jet cutting process.
