Innovative cutting technology using waterjet – abrasive The most cutting-edge cutting technique now in use is waterjet technology. Practically any material can be cut using a waterjet machine, from the very soft (such as foams, gels, and sponges) to the harder (such as plastics, composites, rubber, and leather) to the soft (such as aluminum, brass, ᴄᴏᴘper, carbon steel, and stainless steel) to the heat-resistant and hardened (such as ceramics, cemented carbides), and everything in between.

Glass, stone, granite, marble, marble, and ceramic tiles, some of the toughest and most brittle materials encountered in industry, can also be cut using a waterjet. The cut materials can be up to 200mm thick, which is beyond the capabilities of the vast majority of existing cutting ᴍᴇᴛʜods. One of the cutting gaps is so small—less than 1 mm—that it enables the precision cutting of corners as well as the extraction of exceedingly complicated designs.
The metal and stone industries are where these devices are most frequently utilized. Additionally, building materials like steps, window sills, kitchen or bathroom countertops, pieces of tombstones and monuments, etc. are cut using waterjet technology. With the five-axis version, cutting an inclined wall is possible because to the head’s ability to tilt. In the metal sector, when chamfering is necessary for welding, five-axis waterjets are employed. In order to cut the object ᴄʟᴏsᴇd without having to enter the material from the outside, as is the case with cutting by wire, the stream of water is mixed with abrasive and may pierce through the hardest materials from the inside.
