Waterjet machining utilizes a high pressure stream of water to precisely cut material. To cut a broader range of materials a granular abrasive is added to the water stream, increasing its cutting power. A waterjet machine, with the proper abrasive, can cut aluminum, brass, bronze, carbon fiber composite, ceramic, copper, fiberglass, glass, granite, Kevlar, marble, stainless steel, titanium, tungsten and a lot more.
Garnet is the most widely used abrasive used in water jet cutting with grit size ranging from 50 to 220 mesh, though 80 is the most common. The material being cut, its thickness, and the desired surface finish requirements influence the choice of garnet as it influences the performance and profitability of your waterjet cutting operation. With GMA Garnet, you can be confident you will maximize production and safeguard your equipment. World class processing ensures that every batch of garnet contains highly accurate sized grains of the purest almandine garnet. This ensures there is no dust or ineffective fine grains to restrict garnet free flow and no oversize grains to block focussing tubes, resulting in uninterrupted production from your waterjet cutting equipment.
