Water Jet Cutting

Water jet cutting is a versatile and precise method for cutting a wide range of materials using a high-pressure jet of water.

Water Jet Cutting

In some cas­es, abra­sive par­ti­cles, such as gar­net, are added to the water to enhance its cut­ting abil­i­ty. This process suits var­i­ous indus­tries, includ­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing, aero­space, auto­mo­tive, and archi­tec­tur­al applications. 

Key Features

  • Our water jet cutting systems use high-pressure pumps to pressurise water, typically up to 60,000 psi (pounds per square inch) or more.
  • For cutting harder materials like metals and ceramics, we add abrasives (usually garnet) to the water stream to increase cutting efficiency.
  • The water jet cutting machine is equipped with CNC systems that control the movement of the cutting head. The CNC system follows a pre-programmed design or pattern, ensuring accurate and precise cuts.
  • A wide range of conventional processes can be performed with this single tool, including drilling, sawing, broaching, gear cutting, profile milling, punching, slitting, spline cutting and blanking.
  • Our water jet cutters are fitted with ‘Tilter Jet’ technology for enabling square parallel cutting of components.
  • Water jet cutting is versatile and can be used on various materials, including metals, plastics, rubber, composites, glass, stone, and more. It benefits heat-sensitive materials, as water jet cutting produces minimal heat-affected zones.


Our water jet cutter can cut up to 1250 mm x 625 mm.

The tolerance of our water jet cut parts is +/- 0.1 mm.

This is subject to the type of material being cut. E.G.s. Stainless steel up to 40mm, Aluminium up to 50mm.

Our water jet cutter can cut almost any substrate, including steel, stainless steel, aluminium, plastics, glass (not reinforced), rubber, copper, brass and electrical paper.
