Comparison of laser cutting and waterjet cutting+XTLASER+Eveline

Advantages and disadvantages of water jet cutting

Advantages: Water cutting is also called water jet cutting. It uses water as the medium. This is a cold process. During the cutting process, no heat will be generated on the surface of the workpiece, and the cutting process will not produce chemical changes, so it will not produce toxic chemicals. gas or liquid. This is very important to the aerospace industry because the waterjet cutting process does not alter the physical state of the material being cut, nor does it cause the material to warp due to heat. Water cutting also plays a major role in underwater rescue scenarios.

Disadvantages: Waterjet cutting is not as precise. The water jet is composed of a high-pressure pump, a CNC machining platform and a jet cutting head. The focus of water-cutting is to accelerate the water, and the high-pressure pump pressurizes the water, so it is not very convenient and accurate to process relatively thin and small materials.

Advantages and disadvantages of laser cutting

Advantages: Laser cutting does not contact the surface of the material, will not scratch the workpiece, the speed is fast, the incision is smooth and flat, not affected by the hardness and thickness of the material, the adaptability and flexibility are high, and the material waste is reduced. Laser cutting requires less cleaning and produces a small amount of waste in the form of dust that can be quickly removed by a dust extraction system.

Disadvantages: Laser cutting is suitable for a variety of metals and non-metals, but the material being cut and its properties often limit the suitability of certain cutting mechanisms, assist gases, and laser types. Laser cutting equipment typically consumes more power and energy than other cutting processes.
