Stone and Tile
In today's dynamic business environment, the ability to think outside the box is key to maintaining a competitive edge.
Reduce Work-In-Process Time
Compared to traditional cutting tools and CNC machines, easy-to-use Flow waterjets dramatically reduce work-in-process time for stone and tile fabricators.
Our abrasive waterjet cuts any stone or tile, without a change in tooling. It can drill, or 'pierce', its own starter hole. It can pierce holes in most materials without any special consideration.
For materials that are extremely brittle or delicate, we offers the patented 'Vacuum Assist' option. With this option, even the most delicate glass, stone or tile can be pierced.
No Heat or Surface Stress
The abrasive waterjet does not impart any heat or surface stress onto the stone or tile. Therefore, the material retains original appearance and strength.
Compared to saws and CNCs, a Flow waterjet's thin cutting width (kerf) allows tight nesting of countertop parts in slabs. A waterjet increases material utilization, reduces costs and boosts profits.
With a waterjet it's easy to cut both sink and faucet holes and complex corners on edges of slabs. Combined with a router or hand polisher for bull-nosing and other edge finishing, high speed production or intricate designs are possible.
Unique Ability to Cut Intricate Designs
Whether you're cutting granite, marble, slate, limestone, soapstone, travertine, engineered stone or any other material for floors and counters; porcelain or ceramic tile for inlays or medallions; or glass and metal for artistic accents and signage, the abrasive waterjet's unique ability to cut very intricate designs at high speed without breakage frees your imagination and expands your business.
