The Process of Power Industry Waterjet Cutting
The fabrication process known as waterjet cutting employs high-pressure water jets of up to 87,000 psi. The highly accurate jet of water produced is mixed with an abrasive, such as garnet, to create a powerful force that can cut with high precision through almost all materials.
In addition, waterjet cutting produces no heat that could lead to thermal distortion in the produced parts. Because we filter and reuse our water, it’s an environmentally friendly process that gives off no toxic gases or other noxious fumes.
Benefits of Metal Waterjet Cutting for Power Parts
Whether it’s for steel, copper, alloys, or stainless steel, waterjet cutting power industry parts makes economic and engineering sense for a number of reasons. First and foremost, the process is highly repeatable and capable of producing almost any two-dimensional shape with no burrs. This eliminates the need for costly secondary tooling and reworking.
Along with producing minimal imperfections, waterjet cutting can cut almost any material with cutting tolerances of +/- .030 inches standard. Additionally, it can cut through thin-gauge sheets without distortion all the way up to a 4-inch plate while still adhering to the tightest tolerances.
In addition to all these benefits of waterjet cutting, it’s also important to note that the process’s speed results in maximum savings for our power industry clients. Since the entire procedure can be accomplished with speed and accuracy, your order is filled with minimal operational and tooling costs.
