One of the biggest advantages a waterjet cutting machine has over other cutting machines, such as fiber laser cutters, is that there is no heat-affected zone.
A heat-affected zone alters the physical properties of the material, meaning a fiber laser isn’t great for delicate materials, and more space is required between cuts.
With no heat-affected zone, waterjet cutting machines can make super precise cuts, even as narrow as the width of a hair.
In addition to superior precision, waterjet cutters produce less waste and minimize health and safety risks…
Waterjet cutting processes produce less airborne contaminants, meaning fewer dust particles, fumes, and smoke which might negatively affect the health of operators.
In addition, waterjets can be used in the meat cutting industry (unless the water is recycled) since there is no contact medium.
