Waterjets are capable of attaining accuracy down to 0.003 inches (0.08 mm) and repeatability down to 0.001 inches (0.025 mm).
NO MATERIAL DISTORTION
Waterjet cutting is a natural and accelerated erosion process involving no chemicals or heat. Therefore, warping and distortion typically associated with laser, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting is eliminated.
Cutting materials with Waterjet produce fewer airborne dust particles, smoke, fumes, and contaminants you typically get with other heat involved methods, reducing exposure to hazardous materials.
NO HEAT AFFECTED ZONES
Waterjet cuts its materials without interfering with its inherent structure, as there is no heat-affected zone. So, metals are cut without harming or changing intrinsic properties.
FASTER CUTTING SPEEDS
The speed at which the waterjet can cut through material will vary based on a variety of parameters. On average, waterjet can cut 5-10 times faster than EDM when thickness is under 1".
The flexibility of waterjet greatly enhances the versatility of the waterjet machine, as it can easily switch from cutting ½" (1.27cm) foam gaskets to 4" (10.16cm) titanium brackets.
WHAT IS WATERJET TECHNOLOGY?
FLEXIBILITY AND VERSATILITY
Waterjet technology is an industrial tool for cutting a wide variety of materials from titanium and steel to rubber, composites and glass. Depending on the material, a high pressure jet of water is used, and may be combined with an abrasive material to achieve a precision cut.
THE WATERJET DIFFERENCE:
In order to cut quickly and accurately, it is essential to understand the dynamics of the waterjet stream and account for the bend of the jet. Our software provides fast, accurate cutting for all shapes, allowing us to make accurate cuts without trial-and-error programming.
North Simcoe Waterjet was formed to meet the diverse demands of the large variety of industries present in Ontario. From aerospace and mining, to stone, tile, glass, toolmaking and sheet metal fabrication… a large variety of companies depend on CNC Waterjet technology to accurately cut their parts. We provide high precision cutting services to a variety of industries using the latest in efficient, accurate waterjet technology from OMAX.
