Water Jet Advantages
No Heat Affected Zone
Unlike plasma or laser cutting, very little heat is generated or even transferred to a part when waterjet cutting. The final result is that there is no heat affected zone (HAZ) created on the material. This is very important when working on tool steels, stainless steels, exotic alloys and other metals where heat could actually change the properties of the metal.
With your choice of desired edge finish, waterjet cutting stands alone in comparison to laser cutting and plasma cutting. With a smoother, cleaner cut, free from heavy burrs and burnt edges, waterjet cutting translates to savings in your finishing costs.
Waterjet cutting offers a wide variety of efficiencies which make it a great choice for almost any project. Savings can be achieved through effective material utilization from nesting parts, stacking material to decrease production time, high quality programming software, minimal tooling, etc.
Twinco has the capabilities to cut material thicknesses from shim stock/foils to plates up to 6” thick. Worried about taper on your thicker materials? With our taper control technology we can alleviate nearly all taper using our Tilt a Jet Head.
Is cost a concern on your thinner materials? We can often stack thinner materials to cut multiple parts out of a single cut, reducing the overall cost dramatically.
Cut Virtually Any Material
Waterjet machines offer great versatility when it comes to materials. From glass to composites, metal to acrylics, ceramics to foams, rubbers to plastics, granite, wood, tile, marble, and more – there is virtually no limit as to what we can cut.
