Advantages of Water Jets

Waterjet vs. EDM
EDM (electrical discharged machining) is an erosion procedure that uses an electrical release, it cuts up
to 12" thick, and it requires different wiring for different jobs. Waterjets cut the same parts as EDM
much faster and cheaper. Holding a tolerance + or – of .003. When comparing waterjets to EDM the
advantage to a waterjet are they are faster than EDM, waterjets are more versatile and can cut
materials that EDM can't cut such as plastic, wood, glass, etc. waterjets can pierce the
material where an EDM needs the hole to be made in the material. There is no heat affected zones
with waterjets nor do they have thermal distortion where it may occur with an EDM. Waterjets require
less set up time. Another advantage to a waterjet rather than an EDM is that waterjets can make
bigger parts than EDM. Water jet machine | Water jet spare

Waterjets vs. lasers
Lasers are mainly used for short jobs and a melting method is used with an intense laser light beam.
Lasers usually have a cutting thickness of 1 inch or less. This process also uses different gases for
different applications. Commercial water jet cutting systems | Water jet slats accessories
Waterjets have numerous advantages over lasers. Waterjets cut various material especially reflective
materials that lasers can't cut such as copper and aluminum. There no heat affected zones or thermal
distortion with waterjets like there is with lasers. Waterjets can cut heat sensitive material unlike
lasers. Waterjets are environmentally friendly too. There is noxious gas or vapors produced during
cutting. Waterjets keep their cutting power on uneven material unlike lasers. Waterjets have better
tolerance on thicker parts. The cost of a waterjet cutting system is not nearly as expensive as a laser
system and the operation of a waterjet is significantly lower than the cost of laser operation.

Advantages of Water Jets
The operation and maintenance on a waterjet is much simpler and easier than that of a laser. Another
advantage of waterjet vs laser is a waterjet has a much better edge finish because of its smooth
surface unlike the edge of a laser which is rough.

Waterjet vs. plasma
Plasma is a gas that is blown at high speeds while an electrical ark passes through. The gas reaches an
extremely hot temperature that melts the metals placed in the cutting area.
One of the advantages that waterjets have is no melting or heat affected zones. There is no heat
distortion and it does not change the properties of the material.
Another major advantage is that waterjets cut at much lower temperatures. Waterjets cut a wider
range of various materials especially materials such as granite, plastics, or laminates that are
destroyed by melting. Water jet metal cutting machines
Waterjets offer better precision and intricate parts also.

Waterjets vs. routers
One advantage of a waterjet versus a router is that waterjets are capable of cutting true 90 degree
angles and corners. A waterjet needs only one cutting head for all applications and does not need to
change bits like you would with a router.
A waterjet has a small cutting curve. Another advantage of waterjets is they can cut parts 2-3 inches or
more in thickness.
