Here are some of the benefits to using a waterjet:

• Cheaper than other processes.

• Cut virtually any material: From Glass, and

  Ceramics to Inconel and Titanium

• Cut thin stuff, or thick stuff

• Make all sorts of shapes with only one tool.

• Cut wide range of thickness up to 5.875" thick

• No Heat Generated / No heat affected zones

• No mechanical stressesCut virtually any shape

• Leaves a satin smooth finish, thus reducing

  secondary operations

• Clean cutting process without gasses or oils

• Narrow kerf removes only a small amount of

  material

• Abrasive jets are more environmentally friendly

• You can trade off tolerance vs speed from

  feature to feature on your part.

• No "scaley" edges, which makes it easier to

  make a high quality weld

• Machine composite materials, or materials

  where dissimilar materials are glued together

• Machine stacks of thin parts all at once.

• Abrasive waterjets can machine many materials that lasers cannot. (Reflective materials in particular, such

  as Aluminum and Copper.

• Uniformity of material is not very important to an Abrasivejet.

• Abrasive jets do not heat your part.  Thus there is no thermal distortion or hardening of the material.

• Precision abrasive jet machines can obtain about the same or higher tolerances than lasers (especially as

  thickness increases).

• Abrasive jets can machine thicker materials.

• Abrasive jets are capable of similar tolerances on thin parts, and better on parts thicker than .5"

• Abrasive jets do not loose much "focus" when cutting over uneven surfaces.

When comparing with EDM

• Abrasive jets are much faster than EDM.

• Abrasive Jets machine a wider variety of materials (virtually any material).

• Uniformity of material is not very important to an Abrasivejet.

• Abrasive jets do not heat the surface of what they machine.

• Abrasive jets are capable of ignoring material aberrations that would cause wire EDM to lose flushing.

• New technology allows Abrasive jets to obtain tolerances of up to +/-.003" (0.075mm) or better (We have

  personally done some +/-.001" (0.025mm) work, but that's the exception, not the norm, and only on certain

  shapes and materials.)

• No heat affected Zone with Abrasive jets.

• Make bigger parts.

When comparing with Plasma

When comparing with Flame Cutting

• Abrasive jets provide a much nicer edge finish

• Abrasive jets don't heat the part

• Abrasive jets can cut virtually any material

• Abrasive jets are more precise

When comparing with Milling

• Huge savings in material yield versus milling

• No special tooling required

• Machine virtually any material, including:

• Brittle materials

• Pre hardened materials

• Otherwise difficult materials such as Titanium, Hastalloy, Inconel, SS 304, hardened tool steel....

When comparing with a Punch Press

• Lower cost per piece for short runs

• Place holes closer to the materials edge

• Fast turn-around

• Minimal setup

• Thick materials are fine

• Brittle materials are no problem

• Hard materials are easy

• Abrasive jets provide a much nicer edge finish

• Abrasive jets don't heat the part

• Abrasive jets can cut virtually any material

• Abrasive jets are more precise
