Waterjet cutting

Using the latest in waterjet pump technology, we are able to create up to 87,000 psi (6,000 bar) of pressure to move water and abrasive through material at speeds up to Mach 3.

Compelling Advantages of waterjet technology:

  • No heat generated structural changes - cold cutting process
  • Virtually burr-free cut edges - reduces finishing operations
  • No material discolouration
  • No toxic or fume discharge
  • High yield of material - significant cost savings.
  • Multi-head operation allowing competitive cutting of flat materials
  • 12m x 3m capacity from shim - 200mm thickness
  • We can process a wide array of materials to ± 0.30 mm

Waterjets are capable of machining:

  • Metals - Aluminum, Brass, Bronze, Carbon, Copper, Stainless Steel, Nickel Alloys, Titanium.
  • Non-Metals - Carbon Fibre, Ceramics, Granite, Glass, Composites, Laminates, Marble, Glass-reinforced Plastics, Plastics.
  • Soft Materials - Foamed Rubber and Plastics, Elastomers, Rubber and Rubber bonded materials, Synthetic fibre materials.

With the acquisiton of The Waterjet Group, based in Darton, South Yorkshire, UK we have significantly strengthend our offering to our global customer base, especially to customers in the UK. With its equipment the company is able to process a wide range of materials and sizes for European and international customers.

The largest UK waterjet cutting service center has several state-of-the-art Waterjet machines and related value add equipment. The service center has a large number of aerospace approvals and also serves other high-tech industries, including the medical technology sector. The new machine capacity allows the company to cope with large volumes as well as a quick turnaround.
