Waterjet cutting

CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) waterjet cutting is a popular choice within the aerospace industry as it offers high degrees of precision, but the lack of Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) means that internal structure of an object is not compromised by the cutting process. The process involves utilizing a high-pressure water jet which, combined with an abrasive substance, provides a clean, accurate cut. Waterjet cutting is suitable for cutting and detailing a range of sheet metals and non-metals including brass, titanium, aluminum, plastics and polyimides, offering a broad range of choice in terms of strength, conduction, strength and corrosion resistance.

Waterjet cutting can be undertaken conventionally (operated by a technician) or via CNC machining. Conventional waterjet cutting may be suitable for simple, small, one-off production runs, however if more detail, larger scale orders and high levels of repeatability are required, CNC waterjet cutting is strongly recommended.
