Waterjet Cutting Services

Over the years, waterjet cutting has been replacing various conventional cutting methods in several applications. Why is this cutting method gaining immense popularity across industries? The reasons are many. This technique can create burr-free cuts with superior edge quality, without affecting the form and structure of the work piece. Moreover, it can cut materials to close tolerance level, eliminating any kind of secondary tooling.

Hydro-Lazer – Providing Value-Driven Water Jet Cutting Services

Hydro-Lazer, Inc. has been a specialist in waterjet cutting techniques for nearly three decades, and we continue to build on our legacy. All the problems associated with plasma, laser, and EDM cutting can be eliminated by availing Hydro-Lazer water jet cutting services.

How Water Jet Cutting Works

As the name implies, the technology utilizes a high velocity stream of water to precisely cut materials. The waterjet cutting machine is supplied with a high pressure pump. This pump generates a steady flow of pressurized water (40,000 to 55,000 psi) to initiate the cutting process. The water stream passes through specialized tubing, and reaches inside the nozzle of the machine. The pressurized water then passes through a small diameter orifice, which is located inside the nozzle. Here, the form of the water stream is changed to a coherent jet. This high velocity mixture travels at high speed and impact on the kerf face and performs the actual cutting.

Reasons to Choose Hydro-Lazer Water Jet Cutting

The combination of advanced water jet cutting equipment and dedicated workers allow Hydro-Lazer to virtually cut any material with ease. There are several reasons to choose our waterjet cutting services. These include:

  • It is a fast, flexible, precise, and highly repeatable cutting method.
  • It provides outstanding results quickly.
  • No HAZs (Heat Affected Zones) and material wrapping, as it generates no heat during the process.
  • It will not alter the structure, characteristics, and form of the work piece.
  • Lower set-up costs. There is no need to adjust machine setup according to the material being cut.
  • Minimal material wastage.
  • It can create neat parts with cutting tolerances as close as +/-.003".
  • It can be easily programmed using standard CAD/CAM systems.
  • No dust, or gases generated, hence environmentally friendly.
  • It can cut materials with thickness of 0.002 to 12".
