What is waterjet cutting?

Waterjet cutting utilizes highly pressurized water jets to precisely cut through hard and soft materials. This CNC-driven technology enables intricate 2D and 3D shapes with exceptional accuracy and speed. It generates minimal waste, making it an eco-friendly and cost-effective manufacturing process. UTM offer high precision, narrow kerf width, reliability, and repeatability. They are versatile for producing complex parts across various industries, from metals and plastics to composites and foams, with minimal heat-affected zones. Waterjet cutting's flexibility, precision, and low-stress cutting make it a preferred choice for many industrial applications.


Types of Waterjet Cutting

Features of Waterjet Cutting Service

  • Cold Cutting Process: Waterjet cutters are cold cutting machines, which means no heat-affected zones are created during the cutting process. This preserves the material properties and prevents thermal distortion or discoloration.
  • Cost-Effective: The waterjet cutting process is cost-effective due to low setup times and minimal to no requirement for post-processing operations. This streamlines the overall manufacturing workflow and reduces associated costs.
  • Environmentally Sustainable: Waterjet cutting is a sustainable process as it does not emit any toxic fumes or create greenhouse gases, making it an environmentally friendly manufacturing solution.
  • Ideal for Unusual and Thick Materials: Waterjet cutting services are particularly well-suited for cutting unusual and thick materials while maintaining high-quality edges. The process excels at handling challenging materials that may be difficult to cut using other methods.
  • Kerf Width Control: The material removal during a waterjet cutting process is directly related to the kerf width or the width of the water stream. Typically, the kerf width is around 0.03 inch (0.76 mm). However, the actual kerf width depends on various factors, such as the waterjet nozzle design, the type and properties of the abrasive used (if applicable), the nature of the material being cut, and the material thickness. Precise control over these parameters enables optimal kerf width management for specific applications.

UTM is an extremely professional company with great customer service. Everything we ordered arrived as expected. There were some initial problems, but Kobe helped find a solution that worked for both sides. We will definitely use them again.


For my last order, the customer support was amazing. Kobe helped me solve a logistics issue and the algo parts were excellent quality as expected. I'm super happy with the support and service. For my next order, I'll be increasing the number of parts since I know the quality and service will be great.

Andres C

I ordered 50 CNC machined stainless steel parts and they turned out great. The dimensions were right on and the parts were clean and smooth. I'll definitely order from them again.
