Creations - Overview & Process Advantages
The advantages of the Waterjet process
extend beyond its cost competitiveness with other cutting
techniques. Waterjet allows for the fabrication of many
materials where there are no effective alternative methods.
Waterjet also offers advantages for cutting complex shapes
and intricate designs, not otherwise economically achievable.
Waterjet Creations has quickly earned
a reputation for the knowledge, experience and turnaround
capabilities necessary to serve the exacting demands of
Waterjet Creations offer the accuracy and reliability of the Byjet machine
allied to the experience of our operating personnel to offer our customers,
- Virtually burr-free cut edges without the heat generated
- Close nesting of shapes giving economical conversion
of high value materials
- Multi head operation allowing competitive cutting
of flat materials
Typical examples of the use of
- Aerospace : titanium, steel, aluminum, Cr-Ni-Co alloys
as well as composites - materials which are preferred
for use in various components in both engines and bodies
- Building and Construction : decorative stone,
tile, marble, and granite, concrete, plasterboard,
and insulation materials
- Machining : gears, castings, stainless steel
aluminum, titanium and their alloys.
- Glazing : sandwich, safety and armored glass
as well as Plexiglas
- Woodworking : veneer, sandwich and solid wood
- Textiles : clothing, leather, carpenting and
- Paper : carton board, printing papers, carton
- Automotive Industry : Interior panels out of
back mirrors, dash boards, head liners, car tires, clamps, gaskets
- Electronic Industry : faint glow, cellulose
fibre, resin compounds,
- Food : baked goods, fruits, frozen foods and
Advantages of Waterjet Cutting
(1) Low Cost.
Our abrasive waterjet-machining centre uses your existing DXF files. No costly
fixtures, or elaborate CNC programs required.
(2) No Minimum.
Low start-up costs allow for inexpensive, highly accurate production for quantities
small as one item.
(3) Fast Turnaround.
Working from your drawings eliminates the need to wait for dies or fixtures.
(4) High Accuracy
Cuts are accurate within ± 0.125mm (0.005").
(5) Smooth, Flat
Water jet cuts are smooth, similar to a fine sandblasted finish. Flexible materials
with less taper than cuts made through die cutting.
(6) No Heat Build-up.
Materials like glass, rubber, and plastic will not melt during the cutting
melting, no heat affected areas, no structural changes.
(7) Cuts just
Wateret machining is capable of cutting just about anything.
(8) Less Waste.
"Parts nesting" provides optimum use of sheet materials, reducing scrap.
These examples serve only as a indication
of the current use of waterjet technology.
There are many more possibilities. In the future other new application areas
will open up.
