Exploring Hydro-Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

waterjet cutting

Hydro-abrasive waterjet cutting has made remarkable strides in recent years and, today, it’s one of the most effective machining methods. Waterjet cutting is seen as a major machine tool process technology and certainly one for the future.

It offers customers a unique combination of flexibility, simplicity and precision unparalleled in other available technologies today. The small cutting widths and omni-directional cutting mean the machines can cut virtually any material with exceptionally high precision. Waterjet cutting offers extreme accuracy with tight tolerances and is especially suited to composites.

Waterjet Cutting Myths Debunked

waterjet cutting

Waterjet cutting has increasingly become the ideal solution for many companies dealing with machine tool cutting procedures. Over and above the countless benefits of waterjet cutting machines, they can notably cut through nearly any material. This ranges from glass and metal to composites and stones which other cutters would typically struggle with, especially in terms of precision and superior results.

However, as good as waterjet cutting machines are, there are several misconceptions and PRV decided to set the record straight. Fact is, hydro-abrasive waterjet cutting has evolved remarkably and is one of the most effective machining methods today. This article aims at busting 8 common myths and shed some light on the services available at PRV Engineering.

Custom Fabrication Services At PRV Engineering

custom fabrication

Successful engineering companies use a combination of expert knowledge, experience and continuous investment in machinery and staff. Custom fabrication services require all of these elements and more as quality and production costs are the top priority. Custom fabrication is a specialist process whether you’re machining steel or aluminium.

Metal fabrication, for example, involves a wide range of skills and disciplines from profiling, bending and forming, cropping, welding to assembly and finishing. While technology, machinery and computer-aided design software have led to advanced custom fabrication services, there is still no substitute for experience.

A Crash Course In Waterjet Cutting


Waterjet cutting is often used during the fabrication process of machine parts. This industrial tool is capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet or stream of water. A mixture of water and an abrasive substance is also used in many applications. The highly versatile cutting method produces much less waste than other forms.

Waterjet cutting is also more environmentally friendly as it doesn’t produce dust, chippings or gas like other cutting methods. Engineering companies are implementing waterjet technology as a cost-effective, complementary machining method to cut parts to near-precise requirements. This greatly helps minimise waste, maximise raw material usage and accelerates overall production.
