Waterjet Cutting

Waterjet Cutting Capabilities 

Get in touch
As a contract manufacturer ANCA Manufacturing Solutions Thailand offers Waterjet cutting capabilities for more demanding cutting operations. Capable of cutting over 200mm steel, glass, stone, or wood, waterjets have the capability to cut nearly any material under the sun. Our 5 axes waterjet adds extra capabilities to allow us to cut bevels, tapers and more complex components.

What to expect


Waterjet cutting uses a garnet (stone) combined with 60,000 PSI jet of water to cut through a large variety of parts. This is a relatively slow process but offers the advantage of a cleaner cut when compared to plasma and is more accurate. One additional benefit is that the edge is not hardened after extreme heat as seen from laser or waterjet. This makes CNC machining easier in the next operation.

When designing holes for waterjet cutting it is recommended not to have holes that are 50% smaller than the thickness of the sheet it is cut from. The thickness of the material can also affect the size of the hole. If you need support it's always best to give us a call or get in touch. 

Due to the nature of the waterjet it creates a nozzle with a diameter of approximately 1.5mm. This means that it will never make a sharp corner at 90 degrees and will always leave a radius of about .75mm. Please keep this in mind when designing and receiving components coming from a waterjet.

As waterjet uses a very powerful jet of water up to 60,000 PSI, it can still cause a tapered cut as it moves through a thicker piece of material (waterjet is narrow at the nozzle but wider as it exits the part) and this is more noticeable on thicker parts. Our waterjet has a 5 axes head which allows us to counteract this taper by programming the head to compensate for this taper to provide a more accurate part.
