Thermal cutting processes use heat for cutting. The abrasive waterjet process uses no heat, but cuts by abrasive erosion. All these processes provide precision non-contact cuts in a wide variety of materials, and cut in single pass, rather than multiple passes.

To better understand the various cutting processes, this Thermal & Abrasive Waterjet Cutting program examines, explains and compares: oxy-fuel cutting, plasma cutting, laser cutting applications, and abrasive waterjet cutting.
