Watersonic Water Jet Cutting Machine

Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

This separation process is an extremely efficient alternative to milling and EDM processing. The method enables material and time-saving nesting of several operations with better cutting performance. Very complex shapes can be manufactured with high precision and clean cut edges without material or surfaces being deformed. Whether single or series production, this cold cutting process guarantees a low cost production with maximum precision and minimum tolerances.

Cold cutting is especially important for the increasing need for production of miniaturized components. Using precision, micro water jet technology intricate workpieces can be cut in many materials with a positioning accuracy of 0.0025 mm (0.00001”) and within the tolerance range of +/- 0.01 mm (0.0004”).
