Cutting Paper with Waterjet

Waterjets changed the way the paper and disposable diaper industry does business. Thirty years ago, manufacturers faced the same concerns many manufacturers have today: reliability, redundancy, and 24-hour operation. Waterjet slitting systems are the fastest, most efficient way to cut paper and disposable diaper products. Waterjets produce no airborne dust and do not dull.

The Best Edge

Edge strength tests comparing waterjets with knives on lightweight paper and tissue grades show that the water edge is as strong as a sharp knife. However, the waterjet edge never dulls, so your maintenance is reduced and your operating cycles are longer. Waterjets cut coated paper stock without edge cracking, and perform diaper cross cutting and leg cut outs at incredible speeds.
