Thermoplastics, textiles, elastomers, fibres, thin synthetic materials, foodstuffs, paper and thermoplastics, etc. are cut with jets of pure water at feed rates of up to 200 m/min. With the pure water cutting process, the core jet separates the workpiece. Machines with multiple cutting heads are mainly used. They may be arranged on one or more cross-bars.

The abrasive cutting method is used for cutting hard and compact materials, such as all metal, hard rocks, reinforced glass, ceramics, etc.To create an abrasive waterjet, abrasive is added to the water in a mixing chamber in the cutting head. Due to the high jet velocity, a negative pressure arises in the cutting head, which sucks the abrasives into the mixing chamber and mixes them with water. The water-abrasive mixture is then focused and accelerated through an abrasive nozzle.

Cutting with waterjets has already proven itself very well in the following industries:

  • Vehicle and vehicle supplier industry
  • Aerospace industry
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Residential and industrial building trade
  • Glass industry
  • Woodworking industry
  • Textile trade
  • Electrical engineering
  • Foodstuffs
  • Job shops
  • Paper and filter industry
  • Design/illuminated advertising
  • Boiler and apparatus industry
  • Large-scale catering technology
  • Sheet metal manufacturing
  • Seal and gasket production
