Large Cutting Area Advantage

Our large cutting area accommodates sizes straight from the mill, avoiding the extra cost of sizing the material to fit the table.

Water Jets Cut Without Heat

Ideal for cutting heat-sensitive material. Thermal distortion of machine parts is eliminated. Risk of fatigue failure resulting from process-induced thermal stressing and associated material structural change is minimized.

No Finishing Operation Required

Waterjet can achieve either per-print or acceptable tolerances so that secondary operations are seldom required.

Near Zero Lateral Cutting Force

Waterjet systems reduce fixturing costs plus avoid excessive stress to finished parts. Also, minimal lateral force simplifies material handling and allows cutting close to material edges.

Minimal Waste Material

With typical orifice diameters in the range of 0.003 - 0.030 inches, waterjet kerf width is kept to a minimum, thus maximizing material utilization.

Omni-Directional Cutting

Waterjet cut profiles are not confined to straight-line geometries. Part complexity is limited only by the motion control system specified and traditional start holes are eliminated.

Water jets are Environmentally Friendly

Waterjets produce no hazardous waste, reducing waste disposal costs. They can cut off large pieces of reuseable scrap material that might have been lost using traditional cutting methods. Parts can be closely nested to maximize material use, and the waterjet saves material by creating very little kerf. Waterjets use very little water (a half gallon to approximately one gallon per minute depending on cutting head orifice size), and the water that is used can be recycled using a closed-looped system. Waste water usually is clean enough to filter and dispose of down a drain. The garnet abrasive is a non-toxic natural substance that can be recycled for repeated use. Garnet usually can be disposed of in a landfill.
