Water Jet Cutting

Cutting by a high-pressure water jet

Processing Method

In water jet cutting, the material to be processed is separated by a high-pressure water jet.

When using water jet cutting, it must be ensured that the water jet always passes completely through the material. As a consequence, this production method does not allow for stepped cutting in height.

What is the difference between the 2D and the 3D water jet cutting?

This question can be answered quickly. The solution of the riddle lies in the number of axes. The 2D water jet systems have 3 axes (x, y, z) on which the water jet head moves. The 3D water jet systems have two additional axes, the axes b and c. With these axes it is possible to jet angles into the material.

We produce 2D contours according to your requirements. Shaped parts without internal cut-outs or shaped parts with an entry and exit path to the internal cut can be shaped with our knife cutting machines.

Of course, you can also have your 2D part with a self-adhesion or aluminium-coated with appropriate laminations. Based on your needs and equipment requirements, we will work out the optimum solution for you!

Materials can be cut into complex shapes on these modern 3D water jet machines.

Lowerings, phases and cone cuts are to be made with pure water. The gentle processing of materials offers the possibility to process hard and soft materials equally in quality and cutting accuracy.

Which data do we need from you?

Water jet cutting machines are software-controlled machining centres. Information on the production of the respective cut is passed on to the machines by means of so-called cutting plans. We create the necessary cutting plans for you on the basis of a corresponding DXF/DWG drawing of the shaped part for 2D cuts or IGIS or STEP files for 3D cuts.
