A job shop’s success is dependent on speed of response to a customer’s needs and a quality of workmanship that keeps them coming back. Waterjet cutting is a perfect fit to meet these objectives. A typical scenario may be a call from a customer whose production facility is offline due to a gasket failure. The 5-minute turnaround using a waterjet cutting machine is far superior to the 1-hour plus required using punches and dies.
Specialised service centres unburden their customers by handling the processing of materials for them and their industries. Either focussing on one cutting application or a combination (such as waterjet and laser cutting) processing speed, production efficiency & automation as well as logistics is combined to be able to create an attractive market offer. A one-stop shop for subcontracting. A combination of cutting technology can build your perfect one-stop shop
Waterjet cutting machines are used in the automotive industry on production lines. A single cutting station can be fitted with more than one robot and either pure water or abrasive cutting heads. This means that a waterjet cutting machine on the automotive production line can process different parts made of different materials without interrupting the line to change anything except the control program.
Cutting high value materials and composites for leading chip manufacturing machines. Accuracy, control and process know-how are the drivers for a successful process.
AKER and Larvik shipyard needs high speed, high volume cutting to ensure productivity in aluminium hull construction. The cold cutting process ensures no heat damage is done to the metal.
Waterjet will allow cutting in any direction in one workflow. Even 200mm granite can be cut in one process. The 2.5D cutting head permits a wide range of creative possibilities.
