The facts prove that 4137 bar waterjets can cut faster than 6200 bar waterjets. However, we understand that there are unique applications that require 6200 bar.  Buying the waterjet with the highest pressure might not be the right solution. The cost of owning a 6200 bar waterjet is significantly more expensive than owning a 4137 bar waterjet. Further, depending on the material you are cutting, a 6200 bar waterjet can cost substantially more per inch and per cut than a 4137 bar waterjet.
