Nowadays, the main task of a locksmith is cold metal processing – manually or with the use of power tools. The scope of work of a locksmith includes small parts of mechanisms, minor machining and manual processing of steel, stainless steel and aluminum surfaces.

A locksmith is treated as a welder’s assistant, because he is very often responsible for preparing materials for welding and their subsequent processing in order to apply protective coatings.

The very wide range of skills that a locksmith must have include everything related to mechanics (assembly and disassembly of devices), cutting, sawing, drilling, riveting, soldering and skills in the field of electrical engineering and hydraulics. Also metal science is a very important field of knowledge that a locksmith must acquire – testing the hardness, strength, elasticity, impact strength, plasticity and other basic characteristics of metals is the knowledge necessary for the proper performance of locksmith’s profession.

Waterjet cutting - what is it?

Waterjet cutting is a jet processing method used for cutting of materials by using a jet of water under high pressure. It is often mixed with abrasive substances to improve its power. Many different materials can be processed by this technology, such as metals, stone, glass, ceramics and composites. It doesn’t generate heat, which makes it a safer option for fragile articles, as well as not producing hazardous fumes. All that makes it environmentally friendly. It is a perfect process for various industries such as manufacturing, automotive, aviation, construction and many more.

Principles of waterjet cutting

Waterjet cutting is a specialized process that allows for various applications on many different materials. It follows a few principles, these include:

  • High-Pressure Jet - Utilizes a jet of water pressurized up to 4000 kg/cm², creating a powerful cutting force.
  • Incorporation of Abrasives - Often incorporates abrasive materials like garnet to enhance cutting capabilities, especially for harder materials.
  • Cold Cutting - Operates without generating heat, preventing thermal distortion or damage to the material.
  • Versatility - Capable of cutting a wide range of materials, including metals, stone, glass, ceramics and composites.
  • Precision - Delivers high accuracy with very tight tolerances as tight as ±0.001", suitable for detailed and unique projects.
  • Environmentally Friendly - Produces no hazardous fumes and minimal waste.
  • Minimal Finishing Required - Provides smooth, clean edges that often require little to no additional finishing work.

Factors influencing waterjet cutting

Waterjet cutting offered by Marxam Project can be affected by various factors. Some of them determine how quickly we can complete the project and how much it will cost.

  • Material Type - Different materials have varying hardness, density, and composition, affecting the efficiency and precision of the service.
  • Thickness - The thickness of the material being cut influences the choice of nozzle size, abrasive type, and water pressure. Thicker materials may require multiple passes or adjustments to optimize cutting speed and quality.
  • Water Pressure - The pressure of the stream impacts cutting speed and depth. Higher pressure can enhance cutting speed but may also increase operating costs and maintenance requirements.
  • Abrasive Type - Abrasive materials such as garnet or aluminum oxide are often mixed with the stream to enhance cutting capabilities, particularly for harder materials.
  • Nozzle Size and Configuration - The size and shape of the cutting nozzle can influence the width and quality of the cut. Smaller nozzles provide finer detail but may sacrifice cutting speed, while larger nozzles are faster but may compromise precision.
  • Cutting Speed - The rate at which the waterjet moves across the material affects productivity and quality.
