Exotic Materials: Many exotic metals today are cut with waterjet for a smooth finish. This ranges from mild steel and aluminum to sturdier materials like titanium. Stronger products like nickel alloys can be used to create engines which are able to withstand extreme temperatures. One of the biggest advantages of using a waterjet for substances Read more about Exotic Materials[…]
Thick Insulation: Thick insulation can pose some problems for those who try to cut it. To combat this, waterjet slashes through the toughest material. There is some insulation that incorporates fiberglass within the product. This can be found in automotive, the walls of buildings, attics, or in the HVAC. Waterjet eliminates the struggle by using Read more about Thick Insulation[…]
Cement Board: Cement board typically finds a use in building product such as underlayment for floors, substrate for wall tile, or for building siding. It is a moisture resilient, flexible, strong material perfect for construction. A saw is often brought to a job site to cut away at a cement board. In a factory, waterjets Read more about Cement Board[…]
Stone: An abrasive waterjet is often used for stone kitchen and bathroom countertops, boarders around rooms, hotel lobbies, or other embellishments within a structure. This is meant to beautify architectureand leave an impression on those who view it. The handiwork done can be accomplished through waterjets to create designs such as vines, leaves, or flowers.

Composites: Composites are chosen by transportation and sporting industries mainly for its strength to weight ratio. It’s stronger than metal and lighter in weight, makingit a desirable material to work with. This highly-engineered material is composed of cloth fibers and a form of resin epoxy. Although durable, there is a risk that it will be Read more about Composites[…]
Waterjet displays exquisite detail on numerous materials – from aluminum, steel, foam, and gasket. However, this is far from the powerful capabilities that waterjet shows. Waterjet utilizes its craftsmanship for stronger materials such as composites, stone, cement board, thick insulation, and exotic materials like titanium.
