Materials for Waterjet Cutting
Aluminum Water-jet Cutting
Aluminum is a superior metal in terms of strength-to-weight ratio. It offers High Machinability, ductility, and thermal & electrical conductivity. Parts with aluminum also become highly resistant to corrosion.
Subtypes: 5052, 5083, 6061, 6082
Golden shiny color, low friction, excellent Machinability, and high electrical & thermal conductivity. Brass can be easily machined and the best choice for low-friction applications.
Subtypes: C360, H59, H62
Copper Water-Jet Cutting
It offers good strength, hardness, and excellent corrosion resistance with superior heat and thermal conductivity. It also has a very appealing aesthetic.
Subtypes: 101, C110
Steel Water-Jet Cutting
High mechanical strength, toughness, resistance to wear and fatigue, and sturdiness. In addition to carbon, other alloying elements can be added depending on the needed mechanical and physical qualities.
Subtypes: 1018, SPCC
Stainless Steel Waterjet Cutting
High mechanical strength, Thermal, Wear, and Corrosion resistance. Stainless steel is low-cost and can be machined easily. Parts made from Stainless steel are durable and do not lose that strength over time.
Subtypes: 301, 304, 316
Finishing Options For Waterjet Cutting
We provide various surface finish options for your sheet metal project. If your required surface treatment is not listed below, feel free to contact us for more options.
As the machined or deburring
The machined or deburring finish is the standard finish where unwanted attach chips are removed with deburring tools, and sharp edges are chamfered to smooth the surface (3.2 μm).
Bead blasting produces a matte texture, removing all the marks of machining tools. It applies to ABS, Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel, and Steel parts.
Anodizing involves adding an aluminum oxide coating to aluminum and its alloys. The layers, which come in various colors, increase strength and shield the surface from corrosion.
Powder coating is the electrostatically applying of dry powder to the surface. It produces a thin layer providing excellent resistance to wear, corrosion, and abrasion.
Physical rubbing of a metal surface to create a shiny surface is called a polishing surface finish. It increases the reflectivity and does not affect the dimensional stability of parts.
Brushing is achieved by applying an abrasive brush to the metal surface, which produces a unidirectional satin finish. And it is not recommended for highly corrosive materials.
Smooth machining is done by controlling the machining process, such as feed rate & cutting speed. It minimizes the tool marks and risk of corrosion.
The higher-precision machines produce delicate machining surfaces by utilizing sharper tools and regulating feed rate and cutting speed. Surface roughness up to Ra 0.8 μm can be maintained with smooth machining.
Provides a random, non-linear texture with a shiny, high gloss finish. However, it might be unable to create sharp corners and pockets

What is the Water-jet Cutting?
Water-jet cutting is the process of narrow line cutting to raw material using a high-pressure water jet. The water jet erodes the specific position to separate the workpiece into two parts. It is a straightforward cold-cutting process, and the cutting temperature only dwells between 40 to 60 0 C.It is based on the principle of water erosion. When a high-velocity jet of Water strikes the surface, material removal occurs.
A pure water jet is applicable for the softer materials, but to cut the more rigid materials, some abrasive particles are mixed with the Water for machining. The function of abrasive particles is to enhance the cutting ability of the water jet.
- The water-jet cutting is capable of producing complex & Intricate cuts in material. In addition, It has greater precision in the machining.
- The machining area is kept completely clean and free of burrs and dust during this operation. Furthermore, it offers exceptional edge quality.
- Because it is the cold-cutting process, the thermal damage to the workpiece is negligible.
- It gives flexibility in cutting position as any location can be targeted with the jet.
- There is no need to change tools, so it operates highly efficiently.
Types of Water-jet Cutting
Pure Water and abrasive water jet cutting are the two forms of water jet cutting. The main distinction between them is whether or not the abrasive particles mixed with the Water. Abrasive water jet cutting is capable of cutting hard materials that cannot be eroded by Water alone. In contrast, pure water jet cutting is used to cut softer materials, including paper, fabric, rubber, foam, and felt. Another distinction is that a pure water jet cutter lacks a mixing chamber.
Diamond, ruby, lead beads, garnet, or sands are used as abrasive materials, mixed with Water in the mixing chamber, and a high-pressure jet targets the cutting location. The abrasive particles eat away & erode the material to complete the cutting.
Since the Water-jet is a precise, effective, and environmentally friendly approach to cutting both soft & hard materials, several industries use this technology.
