Making Waterjet Precision Possible

An abrasive waterjet machine demonstrates its fullest advantages when it cuts complex geometries in a variety of materials. The software package that drives the machine makes the biggest contribution to waterjet utility and overall cost control. Waterjet machines initially used G code, but they exhibit special physics and geometric con-siderations that traditional cutting methods can’t handle. To program the advancements in tapers, corner passing and a plethora of cutting models, some waterjet builders have moved to more integrated controllers.
