The article focuses on waterjet cutting and the importance of considering the pump with the right waterjet for a particular application. It differentiates the two basic types of waterjet pumps, the direct drive and the ultra-high-pressure (UHP) hydraulic intensifier. It stresses the significance of having the flexibility to increase water pressure and a larger orifice to cut thicker materials at faster speeds to make one's business more productive and profitable.
