Waterjet Abrasive Makes the Cut

Your waterjet abrasive is important. After all, it’s the primary media responsible for cutting your hard materials. Sure, your waterjet is the cutting solution, but your waterjet abrasive is the actual cutting tool. While it may seem like the abrasive you select is trivial, it’s not. It directly contributes to the performance of your waterjet, as well as the performance of your operations.

 

When you match your waterjet abrasive to your cut part needs, material, edge quality requirements and desired performance, you’re making a smart choice for your business.

 

Maybe you’re cutting material with lower part tolerances, and speed is your main goal – or perhaps you’re cutting highly, accurate parts where little secondary finishing is required. Either way, selecting the right waterjet abrasive for the job will affect your waterjet performance and your bottom-line.

 

How do you know your waterjet abrasive is “right” for your specific cutting needs? There are multiple variables that come into play when selecting the perfect abrasive. Let our team of experts explain which waterjet abrasive will match your budget and cutting requirements.

Particle Consistency

Consistency in abrasive size is key. Large particles mixed in your abrasive can block the mixing tube stopping production. Ensure performance with consistent abrasive.

No Dust or Fines

Excessive fines can build up inside the mixing chamber and once enough of them combine, they drop into the mixing tube much like an over sized particle blocking the mixing tube. Make sure your garnet enhances production – not prevents it.

CleanWash™

Our abrasive flows through an exclusive CleanWash™ Purifying Process where solids and fines are meticulously removed. Don’t let fines or foreign matter clog your cutting.

Superior Cut Performance

Your cut is as good as your abrasive. Make sure you use the right abrasive to reach your desired results.
