Applications

Waterjet cutting offers a high level of flexibility in respect of the materials to be processed

Bystronic waterjet cutting systems are used for a wide range of materials and applications. Almost all materials, also for example 110 mm thick titanium, can be cut outstandingly well using an abrasive waterjet. The limitations are set by the abrasive additive. Garnet sand, for example, exhibits a hardness of between 7.5 and 8.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Hence all materials that have a hardness less than this can be processed using this abrasive waterjet.
