Cutting without thermally influencing the cut material, so called cold cutting (no heat-affected zone), is one of the biggest advantages of water jet cutting. The material shows no physical, chemical or mechanical changes and is consequently easily machinable.
Versatility – the water jet is able to divide the most of materials at large scale of thicknesses.
Water jet cutting is environmentally friendly. No noxious fumes are produced during the cutting process. The water consumption is very low (depending on the water pressure and nozzle size). During sedimentation process impurities are eliminated from the waste water. Non-toxic substances are used as abrasives and they can be recycled for reuse. Used abrasive can be disposed in a landfill.
