Amazing CNC Machine: Kimla Streamcut 5D 5 Axis Waterjet CNC Machine

Waterjet is a cutting technology that is both innovative and abrasive. Waterjet technology is the most cutting-edge of all currently available cutting technologies. Waterjet machines can cut almost any material, from soft materials like foams, gels, and sponges to harder materials like plastics, composites, rubber, and leather, as well as soft metals like aluminum, brass, ᴄᴏᴘper, carbon steel, and stainless steel, and heat-resistant and hardened steels, ceramics, and cemented carbides.

Waterjet can also cut glass, stone, granite, marble, and ceramic tiles, which are among the hardest and most brittle materials encountered in industry. The cut materials have thicknesses of up to 200 mm, making them inaccessible to most other cutting technologies. Waterjet machines have a very small cutting gap, less than 1 mm, which allows for the cutting of exceedingly complicated shapes and exact corner-cutting.

These machines are mostly used in the metal and stone industries. Waterjets are also used to cut building components such as stair treads, window sills, kitchen or bathroom worktops, tombstone and monument elements, and so on. The five-axis version allows for the head to be angled to allow cutting against an inclined wall. In the metal industry, where chamfering is required for welding, five-axis Waterjets are used.
The stream of water is mixed with abrasive and can pierce through the hardest materials from the inside, allowing it to cut the object ᴄʟᴏsᴇd without having to enter the material from the outside, as cutting by wire requires.
