WATERJET Cutting

High pressure waterjet is a powerful cutting tool able to cut through a wide range 

of materials used for automotive soft interior trims such as carpets, headliners,

trunk liners, NVH insulations, instruments  and door panels as well as thin composite 

parts.

How it works

The energy required for cutting materials is obtained by pressurizing water up to 

4,100 bar and forming a fine water stream accelerating up to 900 meter per second 

when it passes through the nozzle made of sapphire or diamond. The 6 axis robot 

guides the waterjet cutting head along the part achievng typical cutting speeds of 

150 up to 500 mm/sec. for headliners and carpets. The material cut with waterjet 

remains dry because of the small water quantity (<1.5 liter /min) and very high 

cutting speed.
