Inside Look at Waterjet Technology
The simple idea of cutting with water is not completely revolutionary. In fact, people have been aware of this process on soft materials for a long time. 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, its various aspects were improved to be used in manufacturing shops all around the world. In terms of our actual waterjet machine, we use Techni. Since 1989, they’ve built a reputation as one of the most respected manufacturers of waterjet in the industry. The high-cutting speeds and emphasis on accuracy of Techni waterjets allow us to deliver products that meet the expectations of customers, without forcing substantial delays.
Since the waterjet relies mainly on water and sand to make cuts, there are no risks that often accompanies heat-induced cutting. Typically, other cutting methods leaves edges burned or frayed. Essentially, what is occurring here is the material being cut without any of its intrinsic properties being altered. While cold-cutting avoids all of this, it also displays accuracy unmatched with 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 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 an impressively small kerf.
In today’s business environment, production speed is vital. We understand the importance of deadlines, 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 more quickly. Our skilled craftsmen understand the ins-and-outs of the machine, so quality will always be ensured!
