5-Axis Waterjet Cutting Machine
A waterjet is a machine used for cutting a large variety of materials through highly concentrated and accelerated erosion. Waterjet cutting can be either pure or abrasive. Pure cutting uses clean water in a strong jet at high velocity to obtain precise cuts. In contrast, abrasive cutting combines water and abrasive substances to cut harder materials.
At RDL Machine, we can create machined parts for aerospace, oil and gas, medical companies, and other industries requiring high-quality, meticulous components. If you’re looking for precision, speed, and accuracy, the 5-axis waterjet cutting machine at RDL Machine is the service you need. Contact us today to get the help you need.
What is 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting?
Similar to 5-Axis CNC Machining, 5-axis waterjet cutting utilizes two additional axes combined with the traditional X, Y, and Z axes to allow perpendicular and rotational movement. This allows for the cutting of highly detailed designs and parts.

We operate the OMAX Maxiem 1530 machine, allowing for increased versatility and the capacity to produce customizable parts with extreme precision and the highest quality.
What Are The Benefits of 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting Machines?
Waterjet cutting provides several benefits, making it one of the most desired cutting services available.
Versatility and Efficiency
Waterjet cutting can cut through nearly any material, as well as multi-layered materials, providing an increase in production in a shorter timeframe.
Thanks to the cold-cutting process of waterjet machining, no heat is applied to the material being cut. The material is protected against exposure to high temperatures, which can negatively affect the material’s physical structure.
The edge quality provided by waterjet machine cutting is superior to other machining centers. Because water is utilized instead of metal, no metal cutters or grinders are scraping against the materials, eliminating the need for deburring services and saving production time and money.
Because the waterjet machine is so versatile, it requires shorter setup and production times, reducing costs and requiring fewer maintenance services.
Unlike other machining centers, this cutting method does not create chemical waste, fumes, or hazardous material. The water follows a closed-loop process, so all the water used during cutting is recycled back into the process to be used again.
What Are The Applications of 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting?
Our waterjet machine is incredibly powerful and can cut through many materials at higher thicknesses than other machining centers. Materials a waterjet cutting machine can cut include:
With our specialized technology and the ability to cut through almost anything, RDL Machine Inc. can service many industries with our 5-axis waterjet cutting machine, which include:
