The whole software interface of VICHOR Waterjet Software is designed according to the requirement of professional CNC system. The designed cutting program is not hard comparing with other cutting technologies.
VICHOR Waterjet Software supports DXF documents and NC code automatically generated by any programming software. It needn’t to define the high pressure, air valve, sand valve and oil pump in NC code. They are all automatically controlled by control software according to the shape. The DXF document generated by AUTOCAD software needn’t any other conversion software. It can be loaded directly by CNC control software, which will series connect the shape of DXF document.
Waterjet cutting compares favorably with other cutting methods, offering good cutting accuracy, fast set-up time and fast cutting, while also cutting a wide range of materials with no Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) or change in material properties.
The cutting accuracy of VICHOR waterjet cutting machine is +/- 0.1 mm.
The repeatability accuracy of VICHOR waterjet cutting machine is +/- 0.01 mm.
Given the challenges of stream lag and taper, the development of VICHOR Dynamic Waterjet with Active Tolerance Control was essential to the advancement of abrasive waterjet. Invented and patented by VICHOR Waterjet in 2006 to counteract stream lag and taper, Dynamic Waterjet allows you to cut at top speed and to high precision.
Yes, it can definitely cut through Titanium of 2″ thickness! Based on the relationship between the waterjet and titanium, waterjet cut titanium is actually faster than stainless steel. We have customers who waterjet cut Titanium of over 5″ thickness every day.
You can use VICHOR waterjet cut any material up to 150mm thickness or more. But considering cutting efficiency, we suggest you cutting material no more than 100mm thickness when using WCM-P60II. We have Dual-intensifier and Quad-intensifier pump for thicker material.
“Water cutter” is short for “water jet cutter“, also known as “water jet” or “water cutting machine”. Abrasive water cutter refers specifically to the use of a mixture of water and abrasive to cut hard materials such as metal or granite, while pure water cutter refer to water jet cutting without the use of added abrasives, often used for softer materials such as wood or rubber.
Water cutter is often used during fabrication of machine parts. It is the preferred method when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods. Water cutter is used in various industries, including mining and aerospace, for cutting, shaping, and reaming.
At present the max. cutting pressure of VICHOR waterjet cutting machine is 410MPa (60,000psi).
When the fastest and most efficient cutting is needed, it is advised to use the max. cutting pressure. Although it will increase a little loss to the equipment, the benefits brought by the efficiency gains is higher than maintenance costs. In general, the main costs are abrasive waterjet cutting cost, abrasive cost and depreciation cost.
A water saw is not a saw made of water! It’s just another name for water jet cutter, a machining tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a ultra-high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance. The water saw is also known as “water knife” in China.

That depends on how small the small water jet cutter is! Just joking, I guess you really care about the machine sizes and the prices.
VICHOR can’t supply water jet cutters smaller than 4 x 4 feet (1.2 x 1.2 m) in size for the following reasons:
1. Cutting area of small water jet cutter cannot meet most customer demands.
2. Cutting efficiency of small water jet cutter is too low due to small water tank below the cutting table, and you need to clean sand very frequently.
3. A small water jet cutter has the same complete system as a large water jet cutter, so its price is not cheap as you wish.
