Pure water-jet cutting machines generate a very thin cutting jet with a high energy level (mach 2 speed). Pressure 1000 to 3200 bar. The coherence of the cutting jet can be improved through the addition of polymer. The cutting jet is perpendicular to the material to be cut, meaning that there is only a minimal side effect on the part. This procedure does not generate heat, doesn’t wet the material nor changes its structure. The cut is incredibly clean.
VHP water-jet cutting machines with numerical control system and equipped with an X-Y table.
Cutting range 1200 x 800 mm – accuracy +/- 0.1 mm
Example of materials cut using pure water-jet cutting:
Rubber: elastomers, silicone, foam, traversed wood, leather, cardboard, imprinted plastic, carbon fibre, glass fibre, composite materials, etc.
Plastic: polyamide, polyacetal, polycarbonate, Mylar, PTFE, PET, POM
