Since the waterjet relies mainly on water and sand to make the cuts, there is no risk of the many consequences that tend to accompany heat-induced cutting.
Typically, other cutting methods leave open the chance for edges to be burned or frayed. Essentially, what is occurring here is the material being cut without any of it’s intrinsic properties being altered. While cold-cutting avoids all of this, it does also display accuracy unmatched by other technology in the industry.
With a waterjet, our team is capable of cutting nearly any material. All the way from plastics to textiles to even bullet-proof glass, we are sure to be able to get the job done!
This advanced flexibility is part of the reason why we’re open to taking on such a wide variety of projects. Our waterjet machine has the ability to cut in any direction and create sharp corners not possible with other techniques. At the same time, this flexibility also reduces the scrap metal produced by having a impressively small kerf.
In today’s business environment, one characteristic that’s vital is how quick you can get a job done. We understand you probably have tight deadlines in terms of time, so we strive to get your product completed as quick as possible.
In comparison to many of the traditional cutting techniques, the waterjet actually gets the job completed quicker. Our skilled craftsmen understand the ins-and-outs of the machine, so quality will always be ensured!
Inside Look at Waterjet Technology
The simple idea of cutting with water is not something that’s completely revolutionary. In fact, for a long time, people have been aware of this ability when used on soft materials. It wasn’t until 1935 when it became known that the addition of an abrasive would allow the waterjet to become a tool capable of cutting all materials. Over the years, the various aspects of it were tweaked to the point it would be useful in manufacturing shops all around the world.
In terms of our actual waterjet machine, we use Techni. Since being formed in 1989, they’ve built up a reputation of being one of the most respected manufacturers in the waterjet industry. Their tag line, “Innovation Through Passion,” really puts into focus the mission behind the waterjet. The high-cutting speeds and emphasis on accuracy of Techni waterjets allow us to deliver a product that meets the desires of the customer, while not forcing any substantial delays. With our skilled technicians running them, our customers can feel confident that their project will be completed without any visual deficiencies to their piece of material.
