The automotive industry has been using the water jet machines for some time now to improve its production efficiency. What are the benefits of the water jet cutting in the automotive industry?
The water jet technology is a very precise method, suitable for cutting even the hardest and the thickest materials, such as, for example, steel and titanium. It is especially important, in particular in the automotive industry. Certainly, every person working in the automotive industry knows that water jet is not only very practical, but also eco-friendly.
The water jet technology works well in case of cutting both internal and external elements, for example, headliners, carpets, wooden slats, materials for sound insulation. Low temperature water jet is widely used to create small details. The water jet process ensures more aesthetic and accurate results than traditional methods, such as laser or plasma cutting. The water jet processing does not cause any mechanical stress on the material. Therefore, there is no risk of deformation, hardening of the raw material or splinters. Once the work is finished, the edge surface remains smooth and uniform, thus, no milling is required. Thanks to electronic programming of the cutting process, the use of the material is maximally efficient. The water jet technology is also eco-friendly, as no hazardous fumes or waste that could cause harm to human health and the environment are created during the process.
