Water jet cutting is considered
a "green" technology
Waterjets produce no hazardous waste, reducing waste disposal
costs. They can cut off large pieces of reusable scrap material
that might have been lost using traditional cutting methods. Parts
can be closely nested to maximize material use, and the waterjet
saves material by creating very little kerf. So reducing the per
unit cost of subcontract components.
Waterjets use very little water, and the water that is used can
be recycled using a closed-looped system. Waste water usually
is clean enough to filter and dispose of down a drain. The garnet
abrasive is a non-toxic natural substance.
The ByVision Pro water jet at Waterjet Precision UK Ltd produces
components in a clean low noise environment and eliminates airborne
dust particles, smoke, fumes, and contaminates from cutting materials.
This both greatly improves the quality of precision components
and the work environment.
