Precision Water Jet Cutting is a versatile and efficient manufacturing process that uses high-pressure water and abrasive materials to cut a wide range of materials, including metal, felt, foam, rubber, cork, & plastic…. just to name a few. This method of cutting offers several advantages over traditional cutting methods, such as laser cutting and plasma cutting.
One of the primary advantages of precision water jet cutting is its versatility. This method can be used to cut virtually any material, from soft materials like rubber and foam to hard materials like steel. This means that manufacturers can use a single cutting method for a wide range of products, rather than needing different machines and methods for different materials.
Another advantage of precision water jet cutting is its precision. At Miller Gasket, our Precision Water Jet Cutting Services boast a tolerance of (+/-)0.003 inches. Cutting produces intricate cuts with clean, smooth finished edges and no heat-affected zones – no thermal distortion or hardening. We are able to produce high-quality parts and products that meet the strictest specifications.
Precision water jet cutting is also an environmentally friendly method of cutting. Unlike other cutting methods that produce fumes and smoke, water jet cutting produces no hazardous waste or emissions. The water used in the cutting process can be recycled and reused, making it a sustainable and eco-friendly method of cutting.
Finally, precision water jet cutting is a cost-effective method of cutting. Because it can be used for a wide range of materials, manufacturers can reduce the need for different cutting machines and methods, which can save on costs. The precision of water jet cutting also reduces the need for post-cutting processing, which can further reduce costs and production times. It offers several advantages for manufacturers looking for a versatile, precise, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective cutting method. With the ability to cut virtually any material, produce precise cuts with smooth finished edges, and reduce the need for multiple cutting methods, it’s worth considering for your manufacturing needs.
