Glass Cutting using Waterjet cutting solutions by Bear Glass

Abrasive waterjet cutting technology is a great method for cutting glass because it allows for contours and shapes that cannot be achieved with other cutting machines at a reasonable cost. From artistic tabletop inlays to detailed stained glass designs, mirrors, glass ornaments, replacement windows for antique cars, and more, there’s almost no glass cutting application that a waterjet cutting machine can’t tackle.

Glass has a tendency to crack, so it is very important that the initial holes are produced with a reduced pressure . Subsequently, the pressure must be increased to a cutting speed that is cost-effective. For glass, ceramics and other brittle materials, you must gradually increase and reduce the cutting pressure by means of proportional pressure control of the intensifier pump, otherwise, the material would be destroyed.

As an alternative waterjet technology can be used as an abrasive because it is softer, which reduces the potential for chipping, cracking and other surface blemishes and leaves a cut edge that is polished to a smooth finish.Because waterjet cutting does not vibrate the glass, there are no heat-affected zones to leave behind rough edges, almost no secondary finishing is required.

ADVANTAGES OF CUTTING GLASS WITH WATERJET

  • Cut glass geometry that common machining cannot perform
  • Delicate glass does not crack during processing
  • Precisely cut thin to thick glass without changing any tooling
  • Eliminates pressure of cutting process on surface material
  • No heat affected zone
  • No tool to sharpen
  • No need for reworking of the cut edge
  • No waste of material, narrow cutting gap
  • Cost effective means of cutting holes in glass
  • Create intricate design in any shape and size
