A Technical Guide to Waterjet Cutting
Waterjet cutting is probably the most versatile cutting method in the world. Waterjets can cut almost any material, and they cut very accurately. The waterjet cutting stream is small enough to cut intricate parts, powerful enough to cut metals over a foot thick, and gentle enough to pierce through glass. In their areas of strength, waterjets are more cost-effective than other cutting methods. Finally, waterjets are environmentally friendly—they cut without gases or lubricants, and they do not produce smoke.
