Waterjet Cutting – Timeline

Waterjet cutting can be traced back to the 1930s when waterjet systems which were low on pressure were used for cutting papers. In the 1940s, waterjet cutting graduated to the aviation and automobile hydraulics industry.

The 1950s saw this custom cutting technology being utilized by the aerospace industry to cut through aerospace metals. This decade also witnessed the development of high pressure waterjet systems for cutting out plastic shapes.

Fast-forward to the 1960s which saw the development of 50,000 psi systems for cutting through metal and stone. Polyethylene industry benefitted from the development of high pressure pumps during this decade.

The 1970s were a quantum leap for the waterjet cutting technology with the development super high pressure pumps. The 1990s saw the development of motion control systems to discern waterjet with high degree of precision. The successful run of waterjet machines continues till date with the development of abrasive waterjet cutting machines which can make shapes out of a huge variety of material – right from titanium to stone.

The outlook for this custom cutting technology is quite promising – thanks to the production of machines that are simple to handle and which produce high precision results efficiently. No wonder it is one of the quickest growing manufacturing technologies around the entire globe.
