Waterjet Cutting Service

Material Jetting 3D Printing Service

Waterjet Cutting Service is an Effective Option for Creating High-Integrity Parts

3Diligent's cutting (waterjet cutting) service doesn't create heat-affected zones, thus sustaining the intrinsic material properties of the workpiece.

Waterjet Cutting Service Overview

3Diligent's cutting (waterjet cutting) service is the act of spraying abrasive material in a focused jet of water to rapidly remove material. Generally suited for 2D cutting, waterjet cutting doesn't require special tooling and generally doesn't require post-processing. Non-abrasive water jetting can achieve widths as small as 0.003".
