advantages of waterjet cutting

Machine Quality Finish

using Waterjet Machinery

Compared to saw cutting, routing, plasma

cut, and laser cutting; Waterjet cut finish

stands alone. With a smoother, more

sandblasted look, free of burnt edges,

chips, burrs, and slag, it can save you in

unnecessary finishing costs. Waterjet

Cutting is in fact considered a “finish cut”

and is typically used for signs and displays,

most popular for its aesthetics. This

transposes over for many different

industries because the finish is typically

the smoothest and cleanest.

No Heat Affected

Zone with Waterjet

Unlike laser or plasma cutting that could

cause burning or melting, where the cut

areas material can become chemically

altered due to heat, Waterjet cut parts

remain unaffected, due to the fact that water

is the medium being used. Water is well

known for its insulation and absorption of

heat. This can be very critical on applications

where the material cannot show any signs of

burning or discoloration, or on materials that

cannot be cut with laser due to burning, with

toxins released into the atmosphere.

No Mechanical


The very nature of Waterjet cutting places

no mechanical stresses into the work-piece.

No side pressures are created because

Waterjet pressure is forced downward,

forcing the material onto the table, therefore

clamping and fixturing is very minimal and

could practically be non-existent. Because

there is no metal-on-metal contact, no heat

is created, and Waterjet machining does not

introduce any stresses into the material as well.
