What Is The Difference Between Laser Cutting and Waterjet Cutting?
Laser cutting is used for small to large quantities of irregular-shaped parts. It uses a laser to make its cuts, therefore using heat to tool the materials. It has a high turnaround rate making it great for making a lot of product in a short amount of time. This can be used for an array of metals that can go up to ⅝” of thickness.
It’s a cost-effective and burr-free option -- meaning no metal extends beyond the intended cut. The cutting tolerances can be customized and repeated to ensure a fast production rate.
Waterjet Cutting involves using water compressed up to 60 000 psi jet streams. This method causes no heat affected zones (HAZ) or material distortion. These jet streams have the immense power to cut material up to 12” thick! Water cutting is best used on aluminum, thick carbon steel, titanium, brass, copper, plastic or rubber.
However, since waterjet cutting uses such high velocities with and abrasive streams of water, it can be used to cut several other materials including: armor plate, wood, phenolic, foams, marble, ceramics, granite and more.
