• Generally, it cuts with superior quality than heat cutting methods and with less cost and quality than electrical discharge machining

• The cutting ability of water jet machining can be improved drastically by adding hard and sharp abrasive particles into the water jet


• It is mainly used for paint removal, surface preparation, cleaning, cutting soft materials, cutting frozen meat, in the textile or leather industry

• Also it is widely used in Surgery, drilling or even Nuclear Plant dismantling

Advantages of Using Abrasive Water Jet Cutting • It provides a better quality finish in cutting. • Materials cut by the abrasive jet have a smooth, satin-like finish, similar to a fine sandblasted finish

• Abrasive jets also abrade material at room temperatures which implies that there are no heat-affected areas
