Waterjet cutting is an amazing technology that utilizes some of Earth’s most common resources; water and stone. Modern developments in waterjet cutting technology, software, and the machines that drive them have made waterjet cutting a fast-growing technology that can cut almost any material in thickness up to 8”, without producing heat-affected areas or burned edges. Because this versatile cutting process has become very economical, reliable, and environmentally friendly, it’s no wonder waterjet is rapidly becoming the cutting process of choice throughout most industries.

How it works:

 

Cutting Applications:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Glass
  • Marble
  • Stone
  • Copper
  • Plastic
  • Rubber
  • Cork
  • Wood
  • Exotic Metals
  • Foam
  • Granite
  • And More

Waterjet Benefits:

  • Versatile: Waterjet is capable of cutting “any” material including stainless steel, aluminum, glass, marble, plastic, rubber, cork, and wood, just to name a few.
  • Powerful: Capable of cutting up to 8” thick steel.
  • Accurate: With waterjet cutting, part deformation is avoided and high cutting accuracy is achieved without leaving any frayed edges or burs.
  • No Heat Affected Zone: Resulting in less warping of components, increased cutter life on secondary operations, and no grinding for weld preparation.
  • Flexible: Any two-dimensional shape can be cut by a simple program done on the machine CAD system or from any DXF file either networked, downloaded through the inbuilt system, or from a USB disk or CD.
  • Clean: Waterjet produces no smoke or toxic gases because there is no burning process.
  • Fast: Rapid set up times, no tooling, and reducing need for secondary operations due to its accuracy and quality of the cut edge.
