Raw materials that can be cut with water

One of the significant advantages of waterjet cutting is the ability to work with a very wide range of raw materials. Virtually any material can be cut effectively, efficiently and accurately using this technology. Accordingly, Ecojet provides its services to a broad array of industries and works with industries that require diverse solutions. The suitability of waterjet cutting for cutting virtually all raw materials is due to advantages such as cold cutting (thus maintaining the original properties of the raw material, and particularly suitable for materials sensitive to high temperatures), accuracy, different material thicknesses, maintaining the texture of the material and final product surface. At Ecojet we work with an advanced waterjet cutting machine – Flow Mach 3 Dynamic XD ( Flow is an American brand and the leading waterjet cutting machine manufacturer for more than 40 years).

Our machine enables us to cut many different raw materials, among them:
Sheet metal

Waterjet cutting of sheet metal is suitable for a wide range of raw materials, among them brass, copper, titanium, nickel, stainless steel, iron, aluminum, aviation aluminum, bronze, Inconel, lead and silver. The advanced technology can even cut challenging raw materials considered hard to cut using other cutting technologies (e.g., titanium).

Additional types of sheet metal that can be cut with waterjet cutting: tin waterjet cutting, stainless steel waterjet cutting, brass waterjet cutting, copper waterjet cutting, tungsten waterjet cutting, aluminum waterjet cutting, aviation aluminum waterjet cutting, titanium waterjet cutting, bronze waterjet cutting, Inconel waterjet cutting, silver waterjet cutting, nickel waterjet cutting, lead waterjet cutting, corten waterjet cutting, armored steel waterjet cutting.

Marble

Waterjet cutting of marble can be used to create designs and cuts in stone such as marble, granite and others. Customers enjoys short timetables as the process is fast and efficient. Moreover, waterjet cutting is an accurate technology that enables cutting down to the finest detail as well as projects of various geometric shapes.

 

Waterjet cutting can also be used for: marble waterjet cutting, ceramic waterjet cutting, granite porcelain waterjet cutting, Dekton waterjet cutting, caesarstone waterjet cutting, laminam waterjet cutting, architectural cement waterjet cutting, terrazzo tile waterjet cutting, cement board waterjet cutting, strong board waterjet cutting, foamboard waterjet cutting.

Plastic

Plastic is an ideal material for waterjet cutting. As this raw material can be sensitive to high temperatures, it is particularly suited for waterjet cutting technology. Plastic is a soft material and its waterjet cutting is usually performed without minerals (pure waterjet). The result is fast, accurate, quality and professional cutting.

 

The following can also be cut using waterjet cutting: perspex waterjet cutting, PVC waterjet cutting, polycarbonate waterjet cutting, Delrin waterjet cutting, Klingerit waterjet cutting, thermoplastic sheet waterjet cutting, PETG waterjet cutting, polypropylene waterjet cutting, silicone waterjet cutting, Novotex waterjet cutting, Teflon waterjet cutting, reinforced polyester waterjet cutting.

Composite materials

In waterjet cutting of composite materials the structure of the original material is maintained and the original properties are not impaired. At the same time the composite material is not exposed to temperatures that may impact its uniformity.

 

In addition, waterjet cutting can be used to cut the following materials: carbon waterjet cutting, synthetic fiber water cutting, Kevlar water cutting.

Glass

As a raw material glass is very suitable for waterjet cutting. The accurate cutting begins with low water pressure and quickly changes to high pressure in order to continue the cutting. The cutting speed is tailored to the project requirements, as needed when working with breakable material. Waterjet cutting of glass enables its use for glass applications in many industries.

 

Furthermore, waterjet cutting is used for: glass waterjet cutting, plexiglass waterjet cutting, epoxy glass waterjet cutting, sapphire glass waterjet cutting.

Rubber

The rubber industry is undoubtedly one of the most relevant industries for waterjet cutting. This is due to the fact that, contrary to other cutting technologies, cold cutting does not endanger the raw material by exposing it to high temperatures. Waterjet cutting of rubber is clean, fast and accurate. In cutting especially hard rubber, waterjet cutting uses water combined with an abrasive.

 

Waterjet cutting can also be used for: rubber waterjet cutting, foam waterjet cutting, Palziv waterjet cutting.

Ceramic

Ceramic material is made by melting minerals at a high temperature. In the past ceramic was traditionally made of clay, but nowadays substitutes can be found on the market, among them synthetic ceramic and alumina ceramic. Waterjet cutting technology is very suitable for cutting ceramic for uses such as flooring, wall covering and art.

Wood

Waterjet cutting of raw materials is an excellent solution for all wood industry sectors. As waterjet cutting is a cold cutting process that does not require exposing the raw material to high temperatures, it is a particularly effective solution for cutting wood. Waterjet cutting of wood provides a smooth and accurate result and keeps the wood dry except for the specific cut strip. This is a common solution used by architects, artists and interior designers, as well as in industries that combine wood with additional raw materials such as metal and plastic.
