What Does Fluid Jet Cutting Mean?
Fluid jet cutting is using a high-pressure water jet to produce a bore. The water is compressed, fired through a specially designed nozzle and is directed along the design path by the operator. Also known as a water jet, fluid jet or jet cutter, the fluid jet cutter cannot turn corners; where the design pathway bends, curves, dips or rises, the machine must be repositioned. Many fluid jet cutters are truck mounted. With granular additives, an adaptation of the water jet -- the abrasive fluid jet cutter -- can cut through surfaces such as stone and concrete.
