Frequently Asked Questions

Discover our information below answering commonly asked questions regarding Waterjets cutting capability, and what ICEE can offer.

How does Waterjet Cutting work?

Waterjet Cutting is an accelerated manufacturing erosion process within a selected material. Highly pressurised water is fired, through a ruby or diamond nozzle, into a mixing chamber. This pressure creates a vacuum and draws garnet into the stream, where it is then fired at the object in place for cutting. 

What level of accuracy can Waterjet cutting achieve?

Waterjet Cutting boasts ultra-fine precsion. Depending on the material, our Waterjet cuts within 0.5mm tolerance.

Should I use Waterjet Cutting or Fibre Laser Profiling?

Waterjet Cutting is a great option, as it has the ability to cut a wider range of materials, with greater thicknesses. However, Fibre Laser Cutting is great for batch processing of sheet metal materials, and tends to work faster.

Do Waterjet Cutting Services impact the material's physical structure?

Waterjet Cutting does not create a Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) like other methods. This results in the material’s structure remaining intact.
