3 Reasons to Use Waterjet Cutting

A waterjet’s small stream size and controlled pressure makes it the ideal choice for cutting many materials.

From shaped mirrors to cell phone panels to very thick materials, waterjet cutting is the go-to method for a variety of industry applications.   Here are three reasons why manufacturers choose waterjet cutting for their projectsSmoother CuttingA water jet cutter’s highly pressurized stream of water — sometimes cut with garnet or aluminum oxide as the abrasive — provides an exceptionally smooth and controllable tool.Controlling the speed of cutting allows thin or thick glass or ceramic to be smoothly cut very economically.

Etched, taped, and coated surfaces are safe for waterjet cutting, too.

Superior Precision

Regardless of the shape, size or specific glass material, our omni-directional jet stream can cut almost all shapes down to 0.1mm in thickness. The high pressure generated from the machine’s water pump creates pinpoint accuracy to smoothly cut holes, notches and details without distortion.

This kind of precision makes waterjet cutting optimal for applications in all types of industries — automotive, lighting, architecture, energy, marine, medical, aviation, and more.

High Performance for Thick Materials

A wide variety of glass products benefit from water jet cutting, from ultra-thin smartphone panels to thick multi-layered bullet-proof vehicle and building panels to delicate stained glass windows. As the thickness of glass increases, waterjet cutting offers superior speed and accuracy, even for materials like explosion-proof glass.

The Swift Glass Team offers precision cutting for glass and ceramic up to several inches thick. Some other applications for waterjet-cut glass, both thick and thin, include:

  • Ornamental Components
  • Solar Panels
  • Gauges
  • Wafers
  • Wood burning stoves
