Waterjet Cutting Services

We offer high precision CNC waterjet cutting services both for soft materials and sheet metals such as aluminium, steel and copper. We provide an on-demand manufacturing and can fabricate small and large series of parts. Xometry Europe has access to the most modern CNC waterjet cutter on the market through its extensive network throughout Europe. This makes it possible to deliver manufactured parts fast all over Europe at affordable prices.

Ready waterjet cut parts can be post-processed with polishing, coatings, heat-treatment and others.

Waterjet Cutting Finishing Options

As-Machined

This is a finish option with the fastest turnaround. Parts are left with visible tool marks and potentially sharp edges and burrs, which can be removed upon request.

Coating services
  • Zing Coating / Galvanising
  • Electroless Nickel Plating
  • Anodizing: Hard & Colour (Black Hardcoat, Black, Blue, Gold, Gray Hardcoat, Green, Natural Hardcoat, Natural, Orange, Red)
  • Passivate
Surface finishes
  • Polishing / Electropolishing
  • Case Hardening
  • Powder Coating : This is a process where powdered paint is sprayed onto a part which is then baked in an oven. This creates a strong, wear- and corrosion-resistant layer that is more durable than standard painting methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic
Heat treatment
  • Tempering
  • Annealing
Custom

Additional processing and finishes on request.

Overview: What is Waterjet?

The Basics Of  Waterjet Cutting

Waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure jet of water as a cutting tool. The process is guided by a computer that follows a pre-uploaded CAD model. Waterjet cutting technology does not alter the structure of the materials as it happens with laser or plasma cutting because of the heat. As the result, the cut paths have smooth edges and often do not require polishing.

Waterjet Cutters

  • Water-only cutting: it uses pure water and is applied for cutting soft materials like polymers
  • Abrasive waterjet: it uses water mixed with an abrasive and is applied for cutting harder materials like aluminium, steel or titanium

Tolerances

A standard tolerance level for the majority of CNC waterjet cutters ranges from 0.05 to 0.1 mm depending on the size. Tolerance levels can be adjusted to our customer’s requirements

Size Limitations

Maximum thickness of sheet metal possible for waterjet cutting varies depending on the metal and tolerance requirements, up to 100 mm.
