Waterjet cutting is an innovative field of measurement technology in manufacturing. The more cost-effective waterjet cutting has numerous advantages compared to the normal laser method.
For waterjet cutting, the required, extremely high water pressures of 3000 to 5000 bar have to be precisely regulated and measured. HBM provides the relevant sensors for this purpose. This article shows how the correct application of modern measurement technology can improve waterjet cutting to such an extent that many new fields of application are opened up.
