Compared with the laser cutting machine, a waterjet cutting machine is about 30,000 dollars, and a laser cutting machine is more than ten times that of a waterjet.
2. Cutting material
The investment in laser cutting equipment is relatively large. The laser cutting machine has a faster cutting speed and higher precision, but it will cause arc marks and heat effects at the slit during laser cutting.
Waterjet cutting has a wide range of materials and can cut most materials, such as metal, marble, and glass.
3. Cutting effect
Laser cutting is not ideal for some materials, such as aluminum, copper and other non-ferrous metals and alloys, especially for the cutting of thicker metal plates. The cutting surface is not ideal, or even impossible to cut.
4. Equipment investment, maintenance and operation consumption
Water cutting has low investment, low operating cost, wide range of cutting materials, high efficiency, and convenient operation and maintenance.
The above are the introductions to what are the advantages of water jet compared with laser cutting machine.
