Waterjet cutting uses a stream of high-pressure water and sand to cut by erosion. Water at 40,000 to 90,000 psi passes through a tiny hole in an orifice made from diamond, ruby, or sapphire, and this stream passes through a carbide mixing tube causing the venturi effect that sucks in the abrasive. The waterjet can cut virtually any material at almost any thickness with ultra precision & accuracy. One of the big advantages of waterjet cutting is the complete absence of heat, which eliminates distortion, warpage, burning and discoloration to the material being cut caused by traditional cutting methods.
