5 Ways To Increase Productivity With Your Waterjet

Cut out net blanks on the waterjet before doing final machining on a CNC mill. You can save a lot of machining time by first cutting parts to their rough shape with the waterjet, then doing final machining on a CNC mill. Not only will the actual cutting time be shorter, but you’ll also save time in machine setup and material handling. Setting up a job on a CNC mill can be a complex,...

Waterjet Cutting More Than Flat Blanks

Advanced control technology has made it possible for abrasive waterjet cutting systems to make accurate complex 2-dimensional parts directly from a CAD drawing file input by a machine operator.  Now even more advanced control systems have been developed to permit rapid creation of 3-dimensional parts from 3-D CAD files.  As dimensions are added, the motion control required for...

2-D + 3-D = 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting

While five-axis operations such as bevel cutting and other weld prep operations have been possible on abrasive waterjet machines for some time, the capability to process 3D parts such as tubes and pipes on the same waterjet is relatively new. This is opening up new possibilities for metal fabricators.

Shops that once focused primarily on flat 2D work now have the opportunity to take on...
