Water jet cutting uses a 0.8 mm jet of water at upto 60,000 PSI, the water-jet machine allows you to cut intricate shapes to tolerances of +/- 0.2 mm. The fine water jet allows removing 1 mm of material. Materials can but cut up-to 200mm thick. 


A wide variety of materials may be cut by waterjet , including steel, stainless steel, granite, wood, aluminium, plastic, perspex, foam, carbon fibre, Kevlar and composite materials. Traditionally, composites were cut by diamond saw; however this process is limited to cutting straight lines with a waterjet cutting machine can produce rings, complex and intricate shapes.


Due to the nature of  Water jet cutting there is no inherent material changes unlike laser cutting, there is no work-hardening of edges. Edges are left clean, without the need for further machining or labour-intensive finishing.  If you require more information do not hesitate to contact us directly
