You may have seen our earlier video showing waterjet cutting in slow motion. Today we've got two more videos showing how the waterjet cutter works.
Many people assume that since the machine uses water, the waterjet cutting process is quite gentle. This is far from the truth. In actuality, a waterjet cutter uses a stream of water and garnet sand to blast through material at 60,000 or higher pounds per square inch. Here's what it looks like when the waterjet first starts.
Next, we've got a close look at the waterjet cutter in operation working on the same job in 1/4" thick aluminum 6061.
