Cutting chart for Waterjet Laser Plasma Metal Cutting- PDF printable
This is a dated chart back when things were not as fast as todays laser cutting, waterjet and plasma cutting machines. The chart points that CNC laser cutting is faster in most materials up to 3/8". In thicker materials, plasma and water jet cutting have more relevant cutting speeds compared to laser cutting. These values are approximate and are based on a well maintained cutting machine. Today we have waterjet pumps producing almost 100,000 psi waterjet streams and production laser systems at 6,000 watts. We are seeing Hy-definition plasma cutting to 2" material in production cutting.
