Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

Robotic abrasive waterjet systems can efficiently replace common machining such as shearing, sawing, milling and die cutting.  


Abrasive waterjet cutting can also replace oxyfuel, laser and plasma cutting for cutting and deburring forged castings and composite parts

The waterjet formed by the Rubin or diamond nozzle passes through the mixing chamber at high speeds.  The abrasive material (usually garnet sand) is absorbed by the water using an abrasive metering system.  The abrasive waterjet exits the focus tube in a mixing chamber and can cut through virtually any material.

Benefits of Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

  • Flexible process which can cut any type of material up to 5" thick​​

  • No heat affected zone, hardening or stress in materials

  • No secondary finish needed as compared to oxyfuel, plasma or laser cutting

  • Material savings: small kerf width

  • Omni-directional cutting of contours

  • Can drill a starting hole directly into the part

  • Limited cutting force applied to the part

  • Simple, cost effective fixtures can be used to hold parts into place

  • Rapid and easy part prototyping

  • Allows for simple design changes
