2D and 3D Waterjets

FKB_7948
Waterjet is the preferred method when the cut materials are delicate or sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods. We have full automated, state-of-the-art Waterjets for accurate cutting of any material into the desired shape and format. From 2D to complex 3-D shapes, our Waterjets are capable of slicing into metal, plastics, high-density rubbers, foams and fiberglass using water  or a mixture with an abrasive substance.

5-axis cutting:

5-axis cutting opens up a wide range of applications. Where the normal axes on a Waterjet are X (back/forth), Y(left/right) and Z (up/down), a 5-axis system adds A axis (angle from perpendicular) and C axes (rotation around the Z-axis). 540°rotating. Depending on the cutting head, the maximum cutting angle for the A axis can be anywhere from 55, 60, or in some cases even 110 degrees from vertical.

Waterjets – Green technology:

Waterjets produce no hazardous waste. This method uses very little water, and the used water is filtered. The abrasive is a non-toxic natural substance. Waterjets also eliminate airborne dust particles, smoke, fumes, and contaminates from cutting materials such as fiberglass. This greatly improves the work environment.
