Let Hyde water knife for your trial cutting to provide your materials, specifications, requirements.
STONE AND TILE
When dealing with stone, tile and glass, the material must be perforated at low pressure and then automatically switched to high pressure during the cutting process. Perforation, cutting, and speed of tool pads are controlled by our water jet controller.
Advantages of Cutting Glass with Waterjet:
Cut glass geometry that common machining cannot perform
Delicate glass does not crack during processing
Precisely cut thin to thick glass without changing any tooling
Cuts glass panels up to 9" (23 cm) in thickness
Eliminates pressure of cutting process on surface material
No tool to sharpen
No or reduced need for reworking of the cut edge
No waste of material, narrow cutting gap
Cost effective means of cutting holes in glass
Create intricate design in any shape and size(Not suitable for the processing of tempered or hot glass)
Waterjet cutting is the most versatile and efficient process on the market. When abrasives are used in the water jet, it produces clean cuts that do not require secondary processing. Therefore, abrasive waterjets are ideal for cutting metals such as aluminum, steel cutting, stainless steel, tool steel, titanium, brass, copper, Inconel, alloys, and any other special materials.
Abrasive waterjets can cut material up to 8" thick without leaving heat-affected areas. The abrasive waterjet also cuts complex parts quickly and accurately, maintaining a 0.003 to 0.005 tolerance range.Abrasive waterjets are also commonly used for stone cutting and glass cutting because they can form complex shapes.
Because composites are not homogenous materials and are reinforced for greater strength, cutting composites are always considered to be a tough work. As a non-contact cold cutting process, waterjet does not produce heat-affected zones, or leave rough edges and burrs. High pressure waterjet can cut the composites in a fast speed. The abrasives added in the cutting also have grinding function which will make the cutting surface smoother, cleaner and more accurate. Therefore, waterjet is the best choice for composite cutting.
Abrasive water jet cutting is more popular, especially when it comes to metal cutting such as steel, stainless steel, tool steel, aluminum, brass, copper, titanium, nickel, alloys and any other special metals. Abrasive water jet cutting is used for glass cutting and stone and tile cutting, but it is different from steel cutting due to its brittleness and vulnerability. All of these applications are used in the automotive industry, the aerospace industry, the yachting and marine industry, and military defenses.
FOOD (PURE WATER CUTTING)
Ultrahigh-pressure water jet cutting food does not cause bacteria to spread. When the tool is sharpened, it does not have to stop working. What's more, the waterjet cutter has a permanently sharp cutting edge that produces ultra-low-thickness cuts at extremely high speeds. It can be easily adjusted to meet the needs of cutting any product.
The main advantage:
Through this ultra-high-pressure cutting equipment, various foods can be kept fresh or adjusted in flavor without damaging their nutrition, color or texture. When exposed to a pressure range of 50,000 PSI to 60,000 PSI within a short period of time (from 30 seconds to 2 minutes), the food will be heated to achieve disinfection. This means that food cutters can eliminate damaged microstructures and kill harmful pathogens such as E. coli and Listeria. It also enables excellent fermentation, liquid changes and protein changes based on pressure and time.
