How does a CNC waterjet machine work?
A high pressure intensifier pump generates up to 4500 bar producing a cutting stream of less than 1 mm. The stream of water is combined with an abrasive which allows extremely detailed working on a level just not possible with any other type of technology. A significant advantage of waterjet cutting is very little heat is produced during the process, therefore there is no thermally affected zone so secondary finishing is usually not required.

Providing the power behind Kimla waterjets is an AccuStream intensifier pump generating up to 4500 bar of pressure. Intensifier pumps feature symmetrical seals in high pressure cylinders with ceramic pistons minimising the number of moving parts and thus reducing maintenance.
