WATER TECHNOLOGY

Ideal Applications:

 

Thick Material:  Precision cutting up to six inches thick.

 

Heat Sensitive Materials:  The cold process of the waterjet will not affect the temper of the material.

 

Composites:  Cutting materials of different composites at the same time. Including gummy or exceptionally hard materials.

 

Production Quantities:  Maximum material usage, minimum kerf loss, and efficient nesting.

 

Machine Parts:  Waterjet cutting saves you time and money, cutting near net or final shapes. Without creating a heat affected zone.

 

Water Jet Benefits:

 

Bandsaws:  Waterjet cutting is faster, more accurate, requires less man-power, can handle detailed designs, and can be performed on any material.

 

Lasers:  Waterjet cutting can accommodate thicker materials, can be performed on any material, and involves no heat.

 

Wire EDM:  Waterjet cutting is faster, less expensive, can pierce holes, and can be performed on any material.
