Water jet cutting
Water jet cutting doesn’t harden the steel as the steel is not affected by heat
Water jet cutting cuts a wide range of steels and metals, as well as non-metallic materials with high contour precision, e.g. unalloyed and stainless steel, titanium, aluminium, stone, glass, ceramics and various types of plastics and objects.
There are many advantages to water cutting over flame and plasma cutting
Water cutting avoids exposing the metal to heat, meaning you avoid the risk of hardening in the cutting zone and of imperfections caused by surface tension. The method is also extremely environmentally friendly as only water and sand are used in the cutting process.
Number of cutting heads
Up to 4 cutting heads simultaneously
Maximum sheet thickness
Up to 120 mm
6.000 x 4.000 mm

HOW IT WORKS
Water jet cutting using water and sand
If you need a water-cut blank, Unisteel is the professional partner for you. With several years of experience, we can deliver a perfect result. We use the latest and most accurate methods and techniques in water cutting, meaning we offer individual and unique solutions in all common sheet thicknesses and steel qualities.
Water jet cutting works in that a cutter with a high-pressure pump creates pressure of up to 6,000 bar. The high water pressure associated with water cutting is used for cutting soft materials such as plastic, vinyl and fibreglass. If you add sand in the cutting process (abrasive cutting), you then have the option of cutting hard materials such as stainless steel, plain steel, copper, glass, ceramic tiles etc.
We produce for industries such as:
- Green energy
- Machine factories
- Forging and assembly
- We do our own production
The advantages of water jet cutting
The advantages of water jet cutting are that many blanks can be used immediately after the cutting process without any further processing.
If, on the other hand, you require a finish, then you don’t have hardened zones which wear down cutting tools a lot. The cutting process is “cold”, i.e. no heat is applied during cutting.
- No heat exposure
- No or minimal deburring
- Blank is ready for processing
- Very environmentally friendly cutting technique
- Excellent precision
