Are you aware about the possibility of water to cut fragile material and thick materials such as thick steel slabs? Will water work as a cutting tool for bone surgery? One thing when it comes to water is that its jet can be used as a really powerful cutting or slicing tool for a number of purposes every time its pressure will reach more than 50 thousand psi. You can also use waterjet to drill holes on materials and perforate them. And the best part about using waterjet to cut materials is that it is more efficient compared to the other cutting methods that are heat-based such as laser and plasma cutting.
You will be using a high pressure flow of water every time you will use a waterjet cutting system. The waterjet cutting system will also use a combination of water and some abrasives so that it can cut other materials. The use of waterjet cutting systems were first introduced to the public during the 1970s. In the past, the waterjet cutting tools were only used to cut through wood fiber tubes. And after a number of years, the water jet cutting systems are already being used most of the time in cold cutting. And water jet cutting was then used most of the time than the usual cutting method after that.
You can now take advantage of the benefits that you will enjoy from waterjet cutting tools compared to those tradition cutting methods in the past. Take note that you will not get any dust if you will use the waterjet cutting machines. The waterjet cutting machines will also not be releasing any toxic gases in the atmosphere. You can also stop or slow down any time you want with these waterjet cutting machines without doing any damage to the material that you are cutting. Aside from that, every time you will be using the waterjet cutting machine, there will be no limits or indications on what part or point in the material you will start the cutting process. That is because you can actually start at any point in the material that you want to. The waterjet cutting machines are isothermal also.
There are actually so many industries out there today that are using the waterjet cutting machines to perform their cutting procedures. For example, the aerospace industry is using waterjet cutting machines in order to ream, shape, or cut the aerospace components that are intricate and are high tolerance.
The waterjet cutting machines are also being used in the mining industry especially in hard rock mines because they are best in cutting and drilling rocks. Aside from hard rock mining, coal mines are also making use of waterjet cutting machines.
