Abrasive Waterjet cutting technology has been around for many years and has been a go-to method for accurate cutting in the construction industry.

With its precision cutting and versatility to cut a number of different materials like titanium and aluminium, waterjet technology is allowing industry leaders to produce materials accurately and effectively.

Abrasive waterjet technology not only is economically friendly and cost effective but can be used to perform a variety of different tasks. Not only does it cut but it also removes rivets from railway bridges and it’s also an effective method to strip paint.

Patrick Turpin, Sales Executive from OMAX says, the waterjet is the appropriate machine to cut a variety materials for a number of different jobs.

“Abrasive waterjet cutting is an excellent process for architectural applications because if you can conceive it, then the Abrasive waterjet can machine it: they can cut almost any material up to 150mm thick, with minimal burrs and no discolouration or heat distortion.

“For example, an Abrasive waterjet can be used to cut marble kitchen counters, as well as mild steel railing for banisters; it can also be used to cut mirrors for bathrooms and stainless steel backsplashes,” he says.

Waterjet technology is perfect for the fabrication, architecture and construction industries as it allows you to scan a drawing and develop data to cut the part out immediately. The Machine has the flexibility for material changes and can cut complex and intricate shapes perfect for the demanding architectural fabrication industry.
