Sunrise Water jet can cut smoothly at the edge without burning marks, cracks, excessive burrs or other problems related to thermal cutting or mechanical cutting. The lack of heat-affected zone of the abrasive jet means that the heat treatment of the steel does not change due to the cutting process.
All grades of stainless steel can be easily cut on a water jet cutting machine, even if it is difficult to use other processes will not heat or deform the 304 stainless steel. Heat affected zones may weaken the integrity of the components and cause failures. The absence of any HAZ makes the abrasive processing process particularly attractive to those who produce food processing and handling equipment or the aerospace industry. Polished or reflective surfaces do not have a negative effect on abrasive jets because they may use a laser cutting system.
Hardened tool steel
Tool steel can be cut in a fully hardened state without changing the material properties. More and more die and die makers believe that Sunrise Water jet is a valuable accessory that is close to 10 times faster than EDM.
All types of alloys
Hard alloys such as Inconel® and Hastelloy® are easy to cut and do not heat or deform the water jet cutting machine.
The Sunrise water jet cutter may cut more aluminum than other metals because it cuts very quickly, cleanly, and without any heat distortion. To cut thicker aluminum precisely.
Water jet cutters are suitable for cutting titanium, which can be a challenging material for traditional machining processes. Titanium can be cut without any thermal deformation or surface embrittlement quickly and accurately. Due to the very high price of titanium, close nesting of parts can be achieved through the abrasive jet process to save a lot of costs and to reduce waste.
All grades of copper are cut on the water jet cutter without thermal distortion quickly and cleanly. The reflectivity of lasers that may be a problem is not a problem for sanders, and there is no problem with the "gluing" that can occur with conventional mechanical cutting systems.
With the Sunrise water jet cutting machine, brass alloys can be quickly and cleanly cut without thermal deformation.
