How Water-Jet Cutting Works

Waterjet cutting works by delivering a thin jet of high-powered water, using highly focused abrasion to cut through metal and other materials with laser-like precision. In our shop, we use it for everything from cutting intricate shapes for metal art to fabricating machine prototypes and specialty manufacturing.
