BrookeChaplan posted a blog entry in Brooke Chaplan's Green BlogIndustries that choose to utilize waterjet cutting technology are doing their part for the environment. This is because this type of technology creates less waste than traditional cutting methods. Here are just a few of the industries that are employing waterjet cutting for streamlined efficiency. Mining Operations There’s less wasted raw mining materials when you use waterjet cutting in mining. This is because the waterjet is more efficient at cutting what you want from the earth without having to drill holes to get it started. Another benefit is the fact that the water can be recycled without having to constantly add more to the system and flood out your mining site. Aerospace Applications Metal fragments created during the manufacturing process can generate a lot of waste. In the aerospace industry, all of this waste would cut into your bottom-line. This is because the types of metals that are used in the aerospace industry tend to be very expensive and harder to manufacture. Less waste in an expensive industry is good for everyone because you can create more products from the same amount of material. Metal Fabrication Metal fabrication encompasses a wide range of manufacturing environments. This includes things like custom made moulding blades. These types of blades are critical for other industries, such as woodcutting or even more specialized manufacturing environments. Another good thing about waterjet cutting is that it’s more accurate in its degree of precision for the types of blades that you can fabricate. Automotive Industry The automotive industry uses waterjet cutting technology for the bodies of their vehicles. This precise method of cutting means that it’s more reproducible so that you can get the exact same car no matter where it’s manufactured. Another good thing about waterjet cutting is that it doesn’t introduce warping during the cutting process because it doesn’t produce the same amount of heat. Electronics Manufacturing Electronics tend to be more fragile in nature. This industry is perfect for the use of pure waterjet cutting technology because you can control the amount of water pressure that’s being used. The environmental benefit is that you can use less water overall. Due to the nature of the process, the water is only in contact with the final product for a short amount of time to reduce waste. There are lots of other industries that are seeing waterjet cutting technology as a good move for the future. Consider these benefits the next time you want to find the right method to manufacture your products.
