Waterjet Cutting Machine

Cutting Machines

Waterjet cutting is a cold process, meaning that there are no heat affected zones, hardened material or material stresses created during the cutting process. A clean accurate burr-free finish often eliminates the need for secondary surface finishing.

The optima waterjet cutting 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 enables prototypes for products still in development to be quickly and easily created, modified and refined where appropriate.

Accurate and powerful for precision cutting of a wide range of materials and thicknesses.
