The process is essentially the same as water erosion found in nature but greatly accelerated and concentrated.
It is often used during fabrication or manufacture of parts for machinery and other devices. It is the preferred method when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods.
Applications can be found in a number of industries from mining to aerospace where it is used for operations such as cutting, shaping, carving, and reaming.
- Machine a wide range of materials and thicknesses
- Leaves behind a satin-smooth edge
- Does not cause heat affected areas or structural changes
- Completes most work below 80 dB for submerged cutting
- Rapid setup
- No tool changes are required
- Only minimal fixturing is needed
- No noxious gases, liquids, or oil are used in (or cause by) the machining process
