Large Cutting Machine – Water Jet Cutting Machines are Widely Used by A Variety of Different Industries for Cutting Durable Materials

Large Cutting MachineLarge cutting machines are used by a wide variety of different industries in order to achieve high precision cuts to durable materials. Industries such as mining, aerospace, contracting, renovators and builders all rely on large cutting machines to enhance their productivity, capabilities and services.
While there are many different cutting machine methods that can be applied to heavy-duty materials, water jet cutting offers extended benefits for those who require the service.
Water jet cutting can be used on the following materials:
  • Glass
  • All Alloys (Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Steel)
  • Brass
  • Stone
  • Marble
  • Granite
  • Plastic
  • Rubber
  • Carpet
Water jet cutting is a machine cutting method that is becoming more widely used as this method can offer several unique benefits that other machine cutting methods cannot:
  • It is a flexible stream, meaning more elaborate designs and shapes can be achieved
  • The contact force of the cutting stream is low
  • Edges and materials will not warp or become deformed
  • Achieves very high accuracy points of up to +/-0.001. h.
  • Can cut a thickness ranging from 0.002”-0.12”
  • Maximum material is used with little waste as the kerf width enables tight nesting
  • There is no heat-affected zone in water jet cutting, reducing chances of thermal stress.
Water jet cutting offers the above benefits over the many other large machine cutting methods available. While the materials that generally require machine cutting are expensive, it is cost-efficient to select a method of cutting that offers the least chance of mistakes.
Water jet cutting is able to provide fine, unique designs that are unattainable using other methods of machine cutting. And as the majority of other machine cutting methods rely on heat to cut materials, there is a high potential that edges will come out as warped and distorted.
Fortunately, water jet cutting does not require intense heat for it to function. To increase effectiveness of highly durable materials, the stream of water is often combined with an abrasive substance such as garnet or sand. This renders precise cuts and accurate results.
Various uses of water jet cutting are as follows:
  • Tube cutting
  • High Precision Cuts
  • Shape Cutting
  • Net Size Cutting
  • Screen Cutting
In a world that requires that more attention be paid to the "green” methods of labor, water jet cutting is considered to be an ecologically sound application. Used water can be reused again for different projects and the abrasive substance added to the stream is never toxic.The fine stream ensures that as much material is used as possible, meaning that there is less waste. The process also does not result in hazardous wastes.
Large machine cutting has seen rapid advances and improvements since it was first introduced to the industrial world. Water jet cutting is one of the most efficient methods used by many industries and laborers.
