Water cutting

Waterjet cutting involves using high pressure to push a concentrated jet of water through various materials. The high speed of the water provides a force that enables precision cutting in most metals but also in rubber, wood, stone, and ceramic materials. With our Kimtech waterjet cutting machine, we can offer cost-effective cutting of parts with very tight tolerance requirements.

Abrasive waterjet cutting is a cold process where the material is processed without thermal effects. The addition of abrasives such as sand multiplies the cutting effect and makes the technique applicable for cutting even harder materials. Waterjet cutting produces a soft and smooth cut surface with limited post-processing requirements.

Technology and the performance of our machines give us many advantages.

  • High precision

The results are precise as the machine is equipped with a 5-axis cutting head. Bevels and conical holes are chamfered directly in the sheet metal. Angles up to 45° are possible.

  • Effectiveness

Efficient flows with short set-up times from drawing to finished parts. Setting directly in the machine makes work fast and efficient.

  • Good economy of production

Thin cuts with high precision give a high utilization rate of the material.

Our waterjet cutting line has the capacity to handle large series in most materials. However, short set-up times make waterjet cutting well-suited for prototyping and smaller series.

We process sheet metal formats up to 4,000 x 2,000 mm in thicknesses from 1-100 mm. However, we can also handle higher dimensions if necessary. Waterjet cutting is an excellent complement to our laser-cutting resources.

Waterjet cutting is a resource-efficient method without the need for chemicals. The process uses only water and sand, thus meeting our sustainability goals.
