Applications of Waterjet Cutting in Various Industries

Waterjet cutting is a methodology of propelling water at high speed to cut through any material. It is suitable for various materials unless these are incredibly brittle such as glass or ceramics. For all the other objects waterjet cutting technology proves to be extremely helpful.
High stream jet is propelled with Waterjet cutting machines. These can either be pure water or may contain abrasives such as garnet for a cutting through rigid materials.
