In our machine, we are talking about precision worth the name: 0.02 mm in materials with thicknesses up to 50 mm. Compare this with standard waterjet cutting, which has a tolerance of only approximately 0.1 mm. This provides completely new opportunities when high precision is needed. Moreover, complicated shapes can be cut with a perfect finish, which means that post-processing is usually not needed at all.
Minimal negative effects on materials using waterjet cutting
The advantage with waterjet cutting is that the material does not need to conduct current and there are no thermal effects on the material. We can cut in various metals and alloys, plastic, rubber, wood and tile. The technique is suitable for both toolmaking and product manufacturing in small series.
Minimal impact on the environment
Precision cutting with water is done at a pressure of approx. 4000 bar. The fine cut means that minimal quantities of material go to waste, which is worth thinking about when working, for example, with precious metals. No fumes or gases are formed. Nor is the material subjected to thermal or chemical effects
Short lead times
Since the need for post-processing is usually eliminated, the lead times are shorter than for conventional machining. It is also relatively simple to make different variants and versions, especially when it comes to the production of prototypes.
