Waterjet Cutting Machines
For many years the flexibility and reliability of waterjet cutting systems has seen the process used in both high volume production scenarios and with lower volume or one-off bespoke creative applications.
A uniquely accurate and powerful process, a waterjet facilitates the cutting of the widest range of materials and thicknesses. Offering a rapid transition from drawing to finished part, the benefits are many and varied. High accuracy and edge finish often eliminates the need for secondary cutting in the majority of applications.
Waterjet cutting is a cold process, meaning that there are no heat effected zones, hardened material or material stresses. A clean accurate burr-free finish often eliminates the need for secondary surface finishing. The process also leads to small diameter highly accurate kerfs, ensuring that the clean finished products can be manufactured in a way that might not be possible with other processes.
As well as being ideal for both short and long production runs, waterjet cutting also means that prototypes for products still in development are quickly and easily created. Where second generation prototypes are needed, these can be turned round quickly and at less expense than when the product has to be sent back to the planning stage.
