In general waterjet cutting may be a good choice for the following situations:
- Thick and/or hard materials: Waterjet is the manufacturing method of choice for thick materials or very hard or high durometer materials as it can handle them better than other methods.
- Precise corners: Waterjet can provide the the most precise corners of any manufacturing process.
- Large parts: Waterjet is a great fit for cutting very large format parts with high precision.
- Short lead times: If you need your parts faster than hard tooling solutions can turn them around, waterjet cutting may be the right fit.
- Material waste: Designs that nest well can provide less material waste than die cutting and may help reduce your material cost.

Frequently Asked Questions
Want more nitty gritty details about when waterjet cutting is best fit for your project?
Keep in mind that the ultimate tolerances we can meet on a particular design are highly dependent upon the material.
Waterjet cutting has not traditionally been thought of as the “lowest cost” manufacturing process, but, depending on the situation it can be.
Part nesting: One such instance where waterjet cutting can reduce costs is through part nesting. If your part design can be nested in such a way that waterjet cutting allows us to produce more parts from the same size sheet of material, then it can reduce material costs significantly.
Layering: Waterjet cutting can provide the most layering benefits of any process. It is possible to layer multiple sheets of material on top of each other and cut multiple parts out at a time. Because a waterjet can handle a greater level of thickness overall, it can typically cut through more layers than a steel rule die.
