Water jet cutting Water jet cutting of series or individual parts - Industrial parts & Decorative parts

Water jet cutting at ultra high pressure (4000 bars) is used in numerous industrial cutting applications.

With our modern and extremely efficient equipment we can cut in 2D and 3D with a 5th interpolated axis, over an area 12 m² (3000x4000), all types of material up to 200 mm thick. Water jet cutting does not modify the structure of the material or its surface condition. There is no heating.

Water jet cutting is suitable for metals as well as composite materials, Kevlarô, graphite, thermoplastics, stainless steels, Inconel, titanium, aluminium, etc.

In other fields we cut tiles, ceramic, granite, marble by water jet to create marquetry or other decorations.

We also cut wood, rubber to make seals, sealing materials, etc.

Our estimates are free and produced according to your drawings (dxf, dwg, etc.). They include the material supplied by us, for ordinary materials, or by our customers.

Reminder of the definition of water jet cutting (source: wikipédia et other sources)
A water jet cutter is an industrial tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance (for example foam, leather, composite materials, agribusiness products).

Principle :
The basic principle of VHP water jet cutting consists in projecting a continuous stream of water at very high speed (600 to 900 metres per second) through a small diameter nozzle (0.05 to 0.5 mm).

Water, or more precisely the fluid, may contain additives to cut the material more easily. Abrasive jet cutting with garnet for example can be used to cut metals, stones, marble, glass, etc.
This gives the jet its final diameter before contact with the material to be cut. To achieve this result, the water must be treated upstream, especially against scale, and raised to very high pressure (up to 4000 bars) with a hydraulic generator (VHP pump with multiplier).

The material is cut cold by tearing of matter. Due to the high speed of the jet, the material is not wetted or crushed.
Cutting performance can be improved by adding additives such as polymers to the VHP water, to give the jet better consistency over a greater distance.

Abrasive particles such as garnet, aluminium oxide, silicon carbide, steel particles, copper slag, silica sand or powdered glass are added in order to cut very hard materials.
