Tips for Water Jet Cutting Glass

  • Reduce the risk of chipping by using a low-pressure pierce of approximately 10,000 psi.
  • Reduce low-pressure piercing time from two minutes to 10-15 seconds (depending on thickness) by cutting a tiny circle rather than leaving the jet fixed on one spot.
  • 120 grit garnet will produce the best edge quality. If speed is your priority and chipping not a concern, use 80 grit garnet
  • Cut at 75,000 psi to increase cut speed by 50-75% and improve edge quality.
  • Support glass on a sheet of 3/16” corrugated PVC rather than directly on the metal slats. This reduces the risk of chipping and fogging.
  • If your projects require you to frequently raise and lower pressure, install a patented Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valve to save time and prolong water jet pump component life.
  • Tempered glass cannot be cut with waterjet.

Portable Water Jet Cutter Cuts Circles, Radiuses

Jet Edge introduces the Spyder Abrasivejet Radius and Circle Cutting System, a portable abrasive water jet cutting system designed for use in potentially hazardous environments.

The Spyder Abrasivejet Radius and Circle Cutting System can be set up on the side of tanks, small vessels and large diameter piping. It is held in place by vacuum cups and features a self-aligning centering pin for fast and reliable setup. Motion components are made from non-ferrous materials, and cutting head manipulators are powered by pneumatic motors, making the Spyder suitable for use in all environments. A master control panel allows operators to control the cutting head manipulators, direction, speed of travel, abrasive delivery and vacuum components from one location.

The Jet Edge Spyder Radius and Circle Cutting System is available in two sizes: 1” to 6.5” insider diameter/16” to 48” outside diameter and 3” to 12.5” inside diameter/27.5” to 56” outside diameter. The Spyder water jet cutting system is powered by Jet Edge’s 60,000 psi (4,100 bar) waterjet intensifier pumps, which are available in electric or diesel models up to 280HP.
