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.
Advantages of Waterjet Cutting with Xometry
Using the latest CNC machines, Xometry produces highly accurate, quick turn parts in as fast as 10 days.
Xometry offers various tolerance options in accordance with ISO 2768 (standard, fine) and ISO 286 (Grades 8, 7, 6).
Waterjet parts can be post-processed upon request with coatings, heat-treatments and others.
Choose from a variety of sheet metals across a wide range of strength, conductivity, weight, and corrosion-resistance.
Our QA department performs strong quality assurance. Xometry is ISO 9001 certified.

Custom steel alloys are also available
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.
- Zing Coating / Galvanising
- Electroless Nickel Plating
- Anodizing: Hard & Colour (Black Hardcoat, Black, Blue, Gold, Gray Hardcoat, Green, Natural Hardcoat, Natural, Orange, Red)
- 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.
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.
- 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
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
Maximum thickness of sheet metal possible for waterjet cutting varies depending on the metal and tolerance requirements, up to 100 mm.
