Metal waterjet cutting is a process that uses a high-pressure stream of water mixed with abrasive particles to cut through metal. Here's a simple explanation:

Waterjet System:

A waterjet cutting system includes a high-pressure pump, a mixing chamber, and a nozzle.

Abrasive Water Mixture:

Abrasive particles, usually garnet or aluminum oxide, are mixed with pressurized water in the mixing chamber.

High-Pressure Pump:

The pump generates extremely high pressure, forcing the abrasive water mixture through the nozzle.

Focused Cutting Stream:

The waterjet stream, now containing abrasive particles, is focused into a narrow beam for precision cutting.

Metal Cutting:

The high-speed abrasive waterjet cuts through the metal, creating the desired shapes or patterns.

Versatility:

Waterjet cutting can be used on various metals, including steel, aluminum, and titanium.

Cold Cutting:

Unlike traditional methods, waterjet cutting is a "cold" process, meaning it doesn't generate heat that could affect the metal properties.

Applications:

Commonly used for cutting metal sheets, plates, and intricate shapes in industries like aerospace, automotive, and fabrication.

In simple terms, metal waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure stream of water mixed with abrasives to precisely cut through metal, offering versatility and maintaining a "cold" cutting process.
