A lot of people are using the water jet cutting technology because of the many benefits and merits associated with it. It is important to understand that water jet cutting technology is a common practice that has used across the world for more than twenty decades something that has greatly contributed to its popularity. Water jet cutting technology is used to cut abrasive materials using high speed water.
The water cutting technology is however divided into two categories which are namely pure water cutting and abrasive water cutting technology. Pure water cutting technology is however used for soft materials and the most preferred materials in this process include plastic, foam rubber or even paper. Only water stream that is used in the pure water cutting process. The abrasive water cutting on the other hand is used to cut or erode granular abrasive materials which include ceramics and metals. Regarding of the kind of water cutting technology you are using, benefits are so many and similar which all will help to increase your knowledge for the water cutting technology. The following are the top reasons why water cutting technology is very important.
Different materials come with different textures something that limits some cutting technologies from cutting or even eroding them therefore making the water cutting technology the best as it is versatile applicable cutting any material be it soft or hard. The water cutting technologies can cut any type of composite such as carbon fibre reinforced plastics, stones, ceramics among others.
Water cutting technologies have wide variety of industrial applications. The water cutting technologies do not at any time affect the strength or integrity of the material being cut something that has made them the best for aerospace and food industries.
Water cutting technology is also used to cut titanium accurately without causing surface embrittlement. The other reason why water cutting technologies are the best options is because they do not release various pollutants like chemicals and gases to the environment. Water cutting technologies are greatly preferred nit only because of their clean cuts but also because of their safety and this is unlike other cutting technologies that use heat therefore exposing the operators to burns.
It takes very short time to cut any type of a material despite of its texture and this is because of the high speed water used in the cutting process. During the water cutting technology process, most of the water is recycled until the process is over therefore resulting to less water wastage. There are no thermal distortions on the material being cut and thus resulting to very smooth and burr free cuts. Water cutting technology can be used for 2D OR 3D cutting in a very easy way therefore saving one a lot of time and energy.
