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.

CUTTING APPLICATIONS

The Optima Waterjet Cutting Machine is a high-quality machine available in a wide range of sizes with three, four or five-axis capability. It is built using best in class elements and packaged up in turnkey solutions that include the machine, software, installation and training.

The Optima can be built in a range of widths and lengths to suit your requirements. We can offer wide beams for applications with multiple heads or longer narrower machines where space may be an issue. We will select the most appropriate high-pressure pump for your application and control the system using advanced CADCAM software.

We supply the machines with single or multiple cutting heads that have automatic height adjustment including anti-collision systems and offer a range of optional extra items such as dual cutting heads using a spacer bar, dual independent heads, a rotary tilting head and GRS abrasive removal systems. All machines supplied by Kerf are built to the highest engineering standards providing years of reliable operation.

oxy-Fuel

Cutting Machines

When it comes to an excellent cutting method that has been used for decades and shows no sign of being any less popular today, look for OXY-FUEL cutting machines.

For the best quality and the most precise cuts, OXY-FUEL profile cutting machines are certainly an excellent option to explore. At Kerf, your first choice for CNC cutting machine manufacturer, we can provide a wide range of different OXY-FUEL cutting machine options. Oxy-fuel cutting is a method that has been around for more than a century, dating back to 1907. However, it is still widely used today and is a critical component and technology in many sectors.

To cut metals, oxy-fuel cutting uses a mix of fuel gases and oxygen. A number of fuels may be used, with acetylene being the most popular. Speak to Kerf about our profile cutting machines to find out more.

If you’re looking for improved cutting speed with an eco-friendly touch, the waterjet cutting machines from Kerf, your chosen CNC cutting machine manufacturer, are the right option for you.

Not only can this cutting method get through almost any material you ask it to, but it leaves you with little to no waste, and it is an extremely accurate profile cutting method. When it comes to choosing a cutting system that will offer you everything you need, waterjet cutting ticks all the boxes.

Waterjet cutting employs an abrasive grit carried by an ultra-high pressure stream of water. The abrasive grit cuts using a mechanical sawing motion and results in a smooth, precision cut surface created at high speed.

Waterjet is the most adaptable method since it can cut nearly any material; even carbon steel is no match for it. Materials that are extremely fragile, such as tempered glass and certain ceramics, are among the limitations, however. Waterjet cutting is an extremely accurate procedure. It features a tiny kerf width, which allows for the cutting of delicate curves and the production of high tolerance components.

Plasma Machines

Cutting Machines

When it comes to cutting, our plasma cutting machines are exceptional. Plasma cutters use plasma to cut metals like steel and aluminium.

Plasma cutters pass an electrical arc through gas (often compressed air), which converts into a plasma arc that is used to cut through the metal. The interaction of gases, high speeds, and a concentrated region of pressure results in electrically conductive ionised gas, commonly known as plasma. This technique is used on metals that cannot be cut with flame cutting equipment.

Compared to laser profile cutting which utilises fiber lasers and in which the laser beam does the heavy duty work for you, the plasma CNC machine is perhaps less accurate, but it is faster and can cut through heavier materials. That said, the fiber laser cutting machine certainly has as much a place in construction as the plasma cutting machine does, so don’t hesitate to ask us if you need one or both – or any other – cutting machine. We can help you no matter what cutting machine requirements you might have.
