WATER JET CUTTERS
A water jet cutter is a machine tool that uses a very high-pressure jet of water (often mixed with an abrasive substance, like garnets or aluminum oxide) to cut through hard materials, such as metal or stone. Water jet cutting is essentially an accelerated and highly focused form of erosion—the constant friction of water against a solid surface. While laser cutting may provide a more precise cut, water jet cutting is the preferred method for cutting materials that could possibly be damaged by the high temperatures associated with other cutting methods (such as plasma cutting or laser cutting).
For example, these could include cuts to metals with finer finishes or low melting temperatures. There are a variety of water jet cutters on the market today, but they typically fall into two categories. Abrasive jets refer to cutters that use a mixture of water and an abrasive substance, while pure or water-only cutters refer to those that forego the use of an abrasive substance. Water-only cutters tend to be used for cutting softer materials (such as wood and rubber), whereas abrasive jets are used for harder metals, such as steel.
