Waterjet cutting

Innovative applications in waterjet cutting

For nearly half a century we have been designing and manufacturing ultrahigh pressure pumps for pressures of up to 14,000 bar for industrial use. Our high pressure pumps - the core element of the waterjet cutting system - with stepless working pressures of up to 6,000 bar are implemented in all relevant industrial sectors, from the food industry over glass and stone to aerospace.

Especially if a job demands more than just the replacement of a component, Uhde High Pressure Technologies is the right partner. In case of a planned modernization or expansion of an existing plant Uhde High Pressure Technologies accompanies you from the analysis and first preliminary decisions through the entire process.

Water simply cuts everything

Water simply cuts everything

We experience the power of water daily. Water has been creating new shapes by erosion for millions of years. Uhde HPT simply reduces this time by increasing the pressure of the water.

Regardless of the material composition and type, water cuts with maximum precision and flexibility. High pressure waterjet cutting ischaracterized by environmental and user friendliness. Due to its advantages it is superior to other cutting processes and thus has evolved into one of the most important processes at all.

  • Almost any kind of material can be cut (steel, stainless steel, composites, glass, ceramics, stone, rubber etc.)
  • No thermal effect on materials, low cutting and reaction forces, small cutting width (0,5-1,0mm)
  • 2D and 3D applications
  • Max. cutting thickness – up to 500 mm with 6,000 bar
  • New application fields – e.g. miniaturization, surgery
