WATER CUT

The system water jet cutting OVIEDO used by CORTES METALLURGICAL is an advanced system that achieves cutting cutting capacity only in a multitude of materials and thicknesses. To perform this type of cut using a water jet, which at a speed of about 3,500 km / h obtained an accuracy of tenths of a millimeter.

In metal cutting the water jet directly competes with alternative procedures such as laser cutting or plasma.

Essentially water jet can process material thickness thicker than the laser and more accurately cut the plasma process. The water jet cutting is a cold cutting process and therefore is especially interesting is claimed in all applications in which the material can not be affected by heat. In aerospace manufacturing but this requirement is typical vehicles.

The main advantages of water jet cutting are:

  • No deformation of material heat
  • No increase in hardness of the material along the cutting edge
  • No modification of the material metallurgical
  • No heat influence zone
  • No development of smoke or fumes harmful to health
  • None or only little post processing
