As the grid above illustrates – and the image to the right shows, waterjet cutting technology has clear advantages over other cutting methods.

Green Benefits
Waterjet cutting is a cold-cutting process that eliminates slag deformation and dross waste – unfortunate effects found in plasma and laser cutting processes.

Additionally, both the garnet used in abrasive cutting as well as the water are recycable.
