Benefits of WaterjetWaterjet cutting technology is one of the fastest growing major machine tool processes in the world due to its versatility and ease of operation. There are multiple advantages to adding waterjet cutting capabilities to your shop.
Versatility is Our Biggest Asset
Waterjet is the ultimate machine tool, no matter the application. Why? On top of ultimate versatility, there are three main benefits to waterjet cutting.
This means no heat or stress is imparted into your cut materials.
This means you can take the part directly off of the cutting table, no secondary finishing required.
Minimal kerf and high accuracy combined with the ability to cut virtually any material means more opportunities.
Typical industries that use waterjet technology:
- Oil & Gas

Simplify your process
With waterjet, get quick turnaround on jobs with extremely fast programming and machine setup.
A precise waterjet starts with the stability of the table, all the way to the control of the waterjet stream.
Flow waterjets can make parts to very tight tolerances, some systems can create parts with a tolerance as close as 0.001" (0.025 mm). For waterjet cutting, typical part tolerances range from between 0.003" and 0.005" of an inch. For materials over 1 inch thick the machines will produce parts from +/- 0.005 to 0.100 inch (0.12 to 2.5 mm).
Tolerances vary greatly by manufacturer due to differences in technology like the control, as well as machine construction.
