Water Jet Cutter

ACRAN uses a state of the art 30HP high-pressure water cutter with a cutting bed size of 4.2 metres x 3.0 metres.

Water jet cutting involves CNC cutting of materials using a jet of water with an operating pressure up to 4,200 Bar (60,000 PSI). Typically, any material that can be cut by hand with a knife can be cut with water alone. Harder materials such as steel glass ceramics and concrete are cut with a combination of water and abrasive.

As this type of cutting does not impart heat to the cut product, the materials are not limited due to issues with distortion, melting or warping.

Current software enables excellent nesting while our ability to cut multiple sheets of materials facilitates economical cutting.

Typical materials that can be cut include:

  • Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Insulation
  • Rubber
  • Concrete
The water cutter compliments a wide range of other machinery producing economical and accurate manufacturing and processing within the facility.
