Waterjet cutting is a unique method of material processing that involves using a stream of high-pressure water mixed with abrasive materials to cut through various materials such as metals, ceramics, and stones. This form of cutting technology has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its ability to deliver precise cuts that are difficult or impossible to achieve with other forms of cutting technologies.
Unlike traditional cutting methods, waterjet cutting does not produce heat, which makes it ideal for cutting materials that are sensitive to heat, such as plastic and rubber. The cooling effect of the water ensures that the material being cut does not overheat or warp during the cutting process, which helps to maintain the integrity of the material's composition.
One of the most significant advantages of waterjet cutting is its precision. The cutting head of the waterjet is computer-controlled, which means that the cuts can be programmed with a high degree of accuracy. This makes waterjet cutting an ideal choice for applications that require high precision, such as medical devices, aerospace components, and electronic components.
Another significant advantage of waterjet cutting is its versatility. The waterjet can cut through a wide range of materials of varying thicknesses, from thin sheets of metal to thick blocks of granite. Furthermore, the waterjet can cut through intricate shapes and angles that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional cutting methods.
In addition to its precision and versatility, waterjet cutting is also an environmentally friendly form of material processing. Waterjet cutting does not produce any harmful byproducts, and the abrasive materials used in the cutting process can be recycled and reused. Furthermore, the water used in the cutting process can be filtered and reused, reducing the amount of water used during the cutting process.
To achieve precise and efficient cutting, a flawless jet of water is essential. This flawless jet is formed by an orifice, and Dutch Diamond Group has worked closely with our customers' developers to develop a new generation of diamond orifices. Our orifices ensure optimal cutting for an extended period of time, providing a hassle-free cutting experience. As a result, our products have earned recognition from reputable OEMs and have been distributed to satisfied end users across the globe.
