The only heat generated during cutting process is absorbed by the water and carried into the catch tank. The material itself experiences almost no change
Although anything can be cut through, waterjet is still very safe. It is because we don't need to put any body parts under the waterjet cutting head while it is on
As long as we are not machining a material that is hazardous, the spent abrasive and waste material become suitable for land fill. The garnet abrasive is inert and can be disposed of with our other trash.
The amount of material removed by the waterjet stream is typically about 0.02" (0.5 mm) wide, meaning that very little material is removed. When working with expensive material (such as titanium)
