5 Axis Water Jet Cutting

5 axis water jet cutting allows for cutting of large components and cuts without leaving a heat-affected zone.

 

A water jet cutter, also known as a water jet or waterjet, is an industrial tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.

Material cut by water jets have a fine, sand-blasted surface because of the way the material was abraded, which makes it easier to make a high-quality weld. Material cut by laser tends to have a rougher, scaly edge, which may require additional machining operations to clean up.

An important benefit of the water jet is the ability to cut material without interfering with its inherent structure, as there is no heat-affected zone (HAZ). Minimizing the effects of heat allows metals to be cut without harming or changing intrinsic properties

The 5 axis system we have opens up a wide range of capabilities not only in size but precision and the attention to detail.

The 5 axis water et machine can cut a component size of 6000x3000x730mm, which opens up new territories for component cutting and design.

Capabilities
