Promising Demand from Aerospace and Healthcare Sectors

Abrasive waterjet cutting with five to six axis motion control is widely preferred in the aerospace industry for the precise metal cutting of composites, titanium, Inconel, etc. Waterjet cutting technology is an ideal solution for the aerospace industry, since there is no heat affected zone and burrs, which eliminates the need for secondary operations.

Waterjet cutting machines are extensively used for precision cutting solutions of aerospace parts such as fuselages, engine components, interior cabin panels, rotary blades, etc. Waterjet technology has an edge over other technologies for medical applications too, as there is no heat, and it cuts material without altering its structural properties.

Being a cold-cutting process, the use of technology is expected to continue in medical applications, due to its ability to shape medical parts precisely without changing the properties of the material.
