WAZER Waterjet Consumables

WAZER uses two types of consumables: abrasive and replacement parts. Ground abrasive particles, called garnet, are continually fed through the machine to facilitate cutting. Additionally, some mechanical components wear over time and will need to be replaced.

Abrasive

The cutting power of waterjets comes from the fine abrasive particles that mix with the water stream. 

Load Abrasive

Pour abrasive through the mesh filters into the hopper on the side of the machine. WAZER holds 30 lbs (13.5kg) of fresh abrasive.

Cut Your Part

The abrasive mixes with the high pressure water stream, creating a slurry jet that cuts through the workpiece.

Remove Used Abrasive

WAZER automatically collects and deposits the used abrasive into buckets for easy disposal.

REPLACEMENT PARTS

There are 3 primary components on the machine that wear over time and will need replacement.  

Cut Beds

The cut bed is the most frequent replacement part. As WAZER cuts your part it also cuts into the cut bed.

Nozzles

The nozzle focuses the high pressure water and abrasive mixture. Abrasion occurs on the nozzle’s internal surfaces, wearing them over time.

Pump Seals

The high pressure pump is robust and built to last for years without servicing. When the time comes, we make the process easy for you.
