The ultimate guide to FAQs
high-pressure waterjet cutter
Does a high-pressure waterjet cutter help with the cold cutting process?
You can apply the cold cutting technique with high-pressure water jet cutters. The way of removing materials with an abrasive waterjet is different from what we find in other processes. In this cold cutting process, you can remove a small amount of material at a high speed. During this supersonic erosion, a very low amount of heat is generated, and it does not affect the material. The sand grain also moves very fast, and that’s why it does not get time to access the material. You can prevent any risk to your material during this cold cutting process.
What cutting processes can be replaced with a waterjet?
The waterjet cutting is highly versatile, and it is the fastest available option for manufacturing projects. It has several applications in different manufacturing sectors. Waterjet has already replaced some other technologies, like a laser, milling, plasma, EDM, and routers. As waterjet does not produce harmful liquids and gases, you may also choose it for your cutting needs. The process does not cause mechanical stresses, and thus, several manufacturers have preferred it as the right alternative.
Why should you choose a cold-cutting process for your manufacturing project?
The cold cutting process provides you with a range of noticeable benefits. As there is no generation of heat, you will not find Heat Affected Zone. The cut edge that is left behind retails its original properties. Engineers have found it as the most important aspect of the cold cutting process. They will be able to predict the shape and condition of the material. For instance, this cutting method is highly useful for aerospace components that have to be cut without the application of heat. You will find a finished edge.
Heat Affected Materials can add brittleness to the surface. There may be some issues during the secondary operations, like beveling. However, you will not have this problem with your cold cutting process- waterjet.
Why is a waterjet cutter a versatile solution?
Water jets can do something, which is not possible with other cutting processes. From rapid hole drilling and thick material cutting to thin glass cutting materials, the waterjet is the ultimate solution.
You can attach waterjet to different machines-
- Stationary jets for slitting the tissue papers
- Manual waterblasting sticks
- Single-axis systems for cutting fiber cement board
What are the basic components of water jet cutters?
For water jet cutting projects, you need a cutting table, a head nozzle, a traverse system, a PC-based controller, and a high-pressure pump. You may also use a software program for this process.
How will I solve hydraulic fluid pressure problems?
When the pump cannot produce the desired amount of pressure, you do take some steps to solve it. You have to ensure that there is a proper configuration of the pressure-controlling knob. Moreover, you must make sure the compensator is capable of increasing the pump pressure with the pump compensator. It is also essential to check the temperature level of the relief valve. The increased temperature denotes that the valve is opening against the adjacent components.
There is a water leakage problem with my high-pressure waterjet cutters. How will I solve the issue?
Water leakage is one of the common problems encountered by high-pressure water jet cutter users. The damaging seals and high-pressure hoops are the common causes of this problem. But, you must check the system to know what has resulted in the leakage.
While you have noticed water drops, it indicates that seals will not last long. You have to replace them without any delay to avoid the leakage problem.
In some cases, hot water starts leaking from the valve. The output adapter may be loose, and thus, it is causing the problem.
The end cap is another potential source of leaking water. It signals that the high-pressure seal of the end cylinder is not working.
The seal life is very short. Can I make it long-lasting?
Seals mostly have a short lifespan. But, you can do something to make them long-lasting. Check out the best tips from our professionals.
- You have to be careful of the water quality while using the high-pressure waterjet cutter.
- At the time of replacing the seal, you should clean other parts thoroughly to remove debris.
- There must not be any cracks. You have to check the parts of your high-pressure cylinder.
- Verify the water pressure and volume to ensure that they have maintained their standards.
The water pressure is low. How will I troubleshoot it?
There are some easy ways of troubleshooting the low water pressure problems. Your first step is to ensure that the orifice is in proper condition. When you find any defect, you can replace it.
You must also any look for a potential source of leaking water. While there are leaks, you have to repair them. You must also check the valves and repair them after a thorough inspection.
Another thing to be checked is the intensifier. Moreover, the high-pressure tubing may have some leaks, and you must not overlook them.
Give some tips for cutting hard and thick materials with a high-pressure waterjet.
While cutting thin and thick materials with waterjet cutters, you have to be careful. You must ensure that you have not drilled a hole through the tank floor. It is better to protect the flooring surface by placing some scrap plates.
You can do test cuts a number of times and apply the desired speed for different parts of the materials.
Make sure that you have properly adjusted the pressure level. Moreover, the nozzle condition is another important factor for waterjet cutter users. The cutting head should be in a vertical position. Raise up the cutting head and let the stream pass through the hole. The direction of your cut will inform you about the adjustment of the cutting head. Furthermore, you have to choose the coarsest hard rock garnet for your orifice nozzle.

How will I install an orifice?
The cutting head has an orifice, which indicates the smallest diameter of the stream. It also accelerates the velocity of water up to 2200 mph.
To replace an orifice, the first step is to align the new orifice. While there is no proper alignment with the stream of pressured water, your orifice will not last long.
Steps for the installation of a new orifice-
- Shut down the pump to ensure no pressure level in the lines.
- Turn the valve clockwise and separate the high pressure of the head. It will prevent pressured water from accessing the head.
- Detach the base part of the cutting head (water-only head and abrasive head). You can use crescent wrenches for doing it.
- Make sure that the head is off, and the orifice will be at the base of the body.
- Take out the orifice and clean the body.
- Insert the new orifice into the body.
What is high-pressure water jet cutting?
The water pressure applied for the waterjet cutting process is about 50000 PSI. You can reach the pressurization level by using the pumps of a perfect design.
The water passes through the stainless steel tubes to the waterjet cutting head. Based on the material to be cut, the cutting head may be an abrasive cutting head.
The pressurized water passes through the small diameter of the orifice. Its diameter can range between 0.004″ and 0.020″. You will find the conversion of the water jet pressure into speed. The waterjet can move at more than 2200 mph. The higher water pressure will cause a higher speed. When the orifice diameter is smaller, you will find a faster speed of the waterjet.
You may use the pure water cutting head to deal with softer materials. The speed of the water jet has the potential to cut thin and soft materials.
Which pump should use with waterjet systems?
Intensifier pumps, also known as intensifiers, work best with high-pressure water jet systems. They play a vital role in intensifying the water pressure needed to cut any material. As the diameter of the orifice is small, the pump has to cycle slowly to keep up the pressure. When the orifice diameter is large, the pump needs to work faster for the right amount of pressure.
Which materials can be cut with high-pressure waterjet cutters?
You can easily cut almost any material using your high-pressure water jet system. But, you should not cut some tempered materials. Waterjets help you in cutting any type of metal, like titanium, aluminum, and steel. Moreover, you may also use waterjet cutting systems to deal with materials like glass, ceramic, carbon fiber composite, and granite. Some food processing companies also use pure waterjet systems to cut foods.
Why do manufacturers choose waterjet cutting instead of other machine cutting methods?
There are several reasons for which waterjet cutting systems are highly preferable to manufacturers.
- No limitation to the thickness of materials
- No issue with reflective materials, like aluminum and brass
- No need to apply heat input- There is no heat-affected zone and burning risk
- Waterjets cut heat-sensitive materials like rubber, plastics, and composites.
- While changing materials, you have to alter the cut speed. The cutting process does not emit gas and other hazardous materials.
It is easy to add multiple heads.
Why should I choose garnet for waterjet cutting?
Garnet abrasives have the best characteristics needed for waterjet cutting. The quality garnets maintain the perfect balance of component wear and cutting speed. The abrasive garnets are capable of cutting your materials very fast without affecting your nozzle life. Moreover, the density of the particles is perfect for your waterjet cutting project. You can look for garnets with subangular grains to provide you with a superior edge finish.
Is it essential to treat water?
There is no need to treat water with a special technique. In most cases, water coming from the city’s water supply system is used for the high-pressure waterjet cutting process. However, you can try to analyze the water quality before using it for your waterjet cutters.
Which industrial sectors need waterjet cutting systems?
Waterjet cutting is an advanced technology with a range of applications in different industrial sectors. You can cut materials precisely using the waterjet cutting systems. Most commonly, the industries that use waterjet cutters are
- Power Generation
- Food Processing
- Paper Production
- Rubber and Foam
How much does it cost to use waterjets?
Several factors can make a difference in your waterjet operational costs. While calculating the cost, you have to focus on factors like pump horsepower, abrasives, the number of cutting heads, the material thickness, and other consumable parts. However, ultra-high pressures lead to higher operating costs because of the metal fatigue in components. But, waterjet cutters mostly operate economically, and the standard pressure is 60,000 PSI.
Does water jet cutting need a secondary finish?
With waterjet cutting, your materials do not need secondary finishing. For instance, when you cut steel, you will get a highly smooth finish. It is one of the reasons for which the waterjet is preferable to manufacturers.
What are the different types of waterjet?
Waterjets are of different types, including abrasive and pure waterjet. In the case of the pure waterjet cutting process, the water stream is very thin. There is a little wastage of material at the time of cutting materials. The cutting force is very low, and you can apply the pure waterjet cutting process for soft materials.
On the contrary, you need garnets for abrasive waterjet cutting projects. You can choose this cutting process for thicker materials. There is almost minimal to no burr from this cutting method.
How does the water for waterjet cutting gain energy?
There are high-pressure generators for pumping water to high pressure. The water moves through the plumbing tube to reach the end, where you can find a jewel with a small hole. While the pressured water passes through this hole, the pressure energy gets converted into velocity energy. This velocity is capable of storing a high amount of energy. That is why the water hitting the material can cut it into pieces.
