The Cutting Edge Technology: Waterjet Metal Cutting
As a business owner or an operator in the manufacturing industry, it’s crucial to be familiar with the most efficient technologies available. Waterjet cutting, a powerful and sophisticated technology, is one such game-changer. It offers an unparalleled edge, especially when it comes to cutting metal. Using a high-pressure stream of water mixed with abrasive particles, waterjet cutting enables precision and versatility in cutting a wide range of materials, including various metals.
Why Choose Waterjet Cutting Over Other Cutting Techniques?
When comparing different cutting techniques such as laser or plasma cutting, you will find that waterjet cutting stands out for various reasons. It’s not just about its ability to cut through tough materials; it’s also about its versatility, precision, and cost-effectiveness. At VICHOR, we understand the importance of these factors and that’s why we offer superior waterjet cutting machines to ensure you get the best results for your business.
Understanding the Versatility of Waterjet Cutting Metal
The Wide Application Spectrum: From Titanium to Aluminum
One of the key selling points of waterjet cutting technology is its wide range of applications. Unlike other techniques, waterjet cutting is not limited to a few types of metals. It can cut virtually any material. This includes tough metals like titanium and softer metals like aluminum. What’s more, it can cut these metals with a thickness of up to 12”/305 mm, giving you the flexibility to handle a variety of projects.
The Precision Advantage: Cutting up to 12”/305 mm with Waterjet
Precision is a critical factor in the manufacturing industry. The more precise the cut, the higher the quality of the final product. This is where waterjet cutting excels. With its high-pressure stream of water mixed with abrasive particles, it can cut metal with remarkable precision. Whether you’re dealing with thick sheets of steel or delicate sheets of aluminum, you can rest assured that a VICHOR waterjet cutter will deliver precise cuts every time.
A Cost-Effective Solution: Abrasive Waterjet vs. Laser Systems
In the battle of cost-effectiveness, abrasive waterjet systems take the trophy. When compared to laser systems, waterjet cutting technology is often the more economical choice for several reasons. First, the initial investment for a waterjet system is generally lower than that of a comparable laser system. Second, waterjet systems are less expensive to operate and maintain, saving you money in the long run. Lastly, since waterjet cutting does not cause heat-affected zones (HAZ) or require secondary finishing, you save on additional processing costs. VICHOR’s waterjet machines epitomize these cost benefits, ensuring that you get high-quality cuts without breaking the bank.
Waterjet Cutting: A Cold Cutting Process Revolutionizing Industries
Heat Sensitive Industries: The Role of Waterjet Cutting in Automotive, Medical, and Aerospace
Waterjet cutting has been a game-changer in industries where heat-sensitive materials are prevalent, such as automotive, medical, and aerospace. Traditional cutting methods often generate heat, which can alter the properties of the material being cut. Waterjet cutting, on the other hand, is a cold cutting process, meaning it does not produce heat that could affect the material’s properties. This makes it an ideal solution for these industries where the integrity of the material is paramount.
The Multifaceted Nature of Waterjet Cutting: From Rapid Hole Drilling to Detailed Cuts
The versatility of waterjet cutting doesn’t stop at the variety of materials it can cut. It also extends to the range of cuts it can perform. Waterjet cutting is capable of drilling quick holes, making intricate cuts for automotive parts, or even creating detailed and complex designs for decorative pieces. Regardless of your project’s demands, waterjet cutting offers a flexible and efficient solution that meets your needs.

Advantages of Metal Waterjet Cutting with VICHOR
Ensuring Material Integrity: No Deformation, No Hardening
When cutting with a waterjet machine from VICHOR, you can be assured of the integrity of your materials. Since waterjet cutting is a cold process, it eliminates the risks of deformation and hardening that can occur with other cutting methods. This means your metals maintain their original properties, ensuring the highest quality for your final product.
Preserving Metal Structure: The Absence of Heat Affected Zones (HAZ)
The generation of heat can cause Heat Affected Zones (HAZ) in many cutting processes, leading to changes in the metal structure that can impact its strength and durability. However, with waterjet cutting, this is not a concern. The cold cutting process ensures that the metal structure remains unaffected, preserving its integrity and prolonging its life.
Prioritizing Safety: No Hazardous Fumes or Vapors
Safety is paramount in any manufacturing process. With VICHOR’s waterjet cutting machines, you can put your safety concerns at ease. Since the cutting process uses water and abrasive particles, it doesn’t produce hazardous fumes or vapors. This not only creates a safer working environment but also contributes to a greener, more sustainable manufacturing process.
