Global Waterjet Cutting Machine Market: Dynamics

Waterjet cutting has emerged as a versatile, cost-effective and accurate alternative to conventional cutting methods such as plasma, milling machines, lasers and EDM for many applications. Waterjet cutting machines find applications in many industries such as metalcutting, automotive, aerospace, defense, semiconductors, disposable products, food, glass, ceramics and paper. This process cuts material without creating heat or any mechanical stress. Waterjet cutting offers certain green benefits as this is a cold cutting process, which eliminates waste and slag deformation. This cutting technology offers great accuracy, productivity and efficiency. That apart, waterjet cutting machines are more economical than laser machines. Abrasive jets are faster than EDM, which removes metal at a comparatively slow rate. In comparison to plasma cutting, waterjets operate at a much lower temperature and there is no heat affected zone while the material is being cut with a waterjet cutting machine. These are some of the factors positively impacting the growth of the waterjet cutting machine market.

Related Glossary Terms

  • abrasive


    Substance used for grinding, honing, lapping, superfinishing and polishing. Examples include garnet, emery, corundum, silicon carbide, cubic boron nitride and diamond in various grit sizes.

  • ceramics


    Cutting tool materials based on aluminum oxide and silicon nitride. Ceramic tools can withstand higher cutting speeds than cemented carbide tools when machining hardened steels, cast irons and high-temperature alloys.

  • electrical-discharge machining ( EDM)

    electrical-discharge machining ( EDM)

    Process that vaporizes conductive materials by controlled application of pulsed electrical current that flows between a workpiece and electrode (tool) in a dielectric fluid. Permits machining shapes to tight accuracies without the internal stresses conventional machining often generates. Useful in diemaking.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • metalcutting ( material cutting)

    metalcutting ( material cutting)

    Any machining process used to part metal or other material or give a workpiece a new configuration. Conventionally applies to machining operations in which a cutting tool mechanically removes material in the form of chips; applies to any process in which metal or material is removed to create new shapes. See metalforming.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.

  • waterjet cutting

    waterjet cutting

    Fine, high-pressure (up to 50,000 psi or greater), high-velocity jet of water directed by a small nozzle to cut material. Velocity of the stream can exceed twice the speed of sound. Nozzle opening ranges from between 0.004" to 0.016" (0.l0mm to 0.41mm), producing a very narrow kerf. See AWJ, abrasive waterjet.
