Waterjet Cutting Foam

Foam, like polyester foam, ether foam, volara, and scrubber foams.

Waterjet cutting has the potential to fabricate products of different sizes and shapes. You can use this process to create prototypes, samples, and several foam items. When a piece of foam is not easy to cut with a die, you can rely on the water jet. There is no risk of heat distortion and mechanical stress on your foam items. That is why waterjet cutting foam is better than the laser cutting method. You will get benefits from this cost-effective method of cutting foam.

Types of foam that is easy and safe to cut with water jet:

  • Rebond foam
  • Charcoal foam
  • Dry fast foam
  • High resilience foam
  • Memory foam
  • Polyurethane foam
  • Closed cell foam
  • High-density foam

Uses of foam and water jet cutting for your manufacturing needs

Polyurethane foam is one of the versatile materials with a range of uses. Its elastic and open cell structures are highly resistant to aging effects. As foams are of different types, you can find their usage in everyday life. But, there are foams with similar compositions. Foams have insulating properties, and that’s why they have become a popular choice in the construction industry. However, there are several other uses of foam. Manufacturers check the density of foam before using it for any purpose. You can use the water jet to cut foam into any shape.


Why do lots of manufacturers like to invest in the waterjet cutting foam process?

The waterjet cutting foam provides you with custom solutions. The tooling costs for the process are very low. When you need to cut out small foam pieces from a large sheet, you may choose water jet cutting. The pressurized water stream is one of the important factors to deal with the cutting process. You will easily be able to maintain a high accuracy level in the foam cutting process.

Advantages and importance of cutting foam with the waterjet

The foam manufacturing process is essential to produce a high volume of products. As waterjet cutting foam helps in the faster cuts, you will find it easy to increase your business productivity. You can cut foam into a number of pieces within a few seconds. Thus, you will have a higher profit margin by implementing the water jet cutting foam process.

Abrasives can add to the overall cost of cutting the raw materials. However, as foam is one of the soft materials, you do not need abrasives. You may rely on pure water to accomplish the process. The removal of abrasives will minimize the operational costs. You can increase your revenues by decreasing the manufacturing costs.

By introducing the best water jet cutting head, you will find optimal cutting capabilities. You can make 3-dimensional shapes with this cutting process. By cutting foam with the water jet, you can create polygons and cones. You may also add bevels and chamfers to avoid secondary processing.

While processing foam with the waterjet, you can choose this efficiency-boosting process. You can stack different foam layers to cut them at a time. Thus, you may reduce the manufacturing time by 50%. As the pure water jet produces a small amount of kerf, you can apply a single cut to make edges on two parts. It is the process of common line cutting. You can minimize the production of material waste.

It is tricky to cut foam, as the conventional cutting methods cause damage and deformation. Waterjet uses a non-contact cutting form that generates minimal downward stress on the material. Thus, you will not find the compressing risk. As it is a cold-cutting procedure, you can avoid burning foam materials.

Tips for using

Waterjet Cutting Foam


How much water do I need for waterjet cutting foam?

For the waterjet cutting foam process, you need 3 to 20 liters of water in a minute. Some water is needed to let the pump become cool. However, based on the flow rate and the material to be cut, you can find a difference in the amount of water consumed.


How will you get accurate and precise results from waterjet cutting foam?

You can rely on computer technology for waterjet cutting foam. You may cut foam of any thickness level. Besides, the narrow water stream is capable of cutting high tolerances, detailed parts. The fine water jet does not need surface pressure. So, you can easily cut your foam sheet into different shapes. You will have value from the precision production method.


How do I use a water jet to cut foam?

You need to use pure water jet cutting, where the flow of water plays a role in slicing through the foam sheets. The pressure of the water stream results in precise cuts. The cold cutting procedure will prevent your foam from getting damaged. The water pressure has high effectiveness to produce the best result.


What water quality is best for cutting foam?

One of the major challenges of pure water cutting foam is the quality of water. The water needs to be filtered to remove impurities. You need to measure impurities in parts per million. In tap water, TDS ranges from 140 to 400 PPM. However, pure water, known as the universal solvent, results in damages. That is why waterjet professionals prefer low TDS ranging from 60 to 70 PPM.


How does the water jet ensure custom cuts in the foam cutting process?

You can adjust the water pressure based on the thickness of the foam sheet. You will find accurate cuts without any damage problems. Moreover, waterjet cutting foam has consistency in finishes. There is no risk of cracks on the materials.


Does the water jet cutting foam process produce waste?

Waterjet cutting foam does not need any type of abrasives. You will find that this process does not produce much amount of wastes. Thus, there will be no effect on the environment.


Does waterjet cutting foam ensure a high-quality edge finish of your cuts?

You can easily find the best edge finish in your pure water jet cutting process. The smooth cuts will make your manufacturing process easier.
