How It Works

A high-pressure waterjet is used as a tool to cut a wide range of materials. The energy required for cutting materials is obtained by pressurising water to ultra-high pressures and forming an intense cutting stream by focusing the stream through a small, precious-stone orifice. The fine jet is very powerful, with cutting speeds between 100 and 500 mm/sec for headliners.
