With Waterjet profiling, we have the ability to cut virtually any 2 dimensional shape in virtually any material. Please note that all parts shown in this section are cut by Safirewaterjet and a selection can be viewed at our workshops with prior arrangment. Shown here, parts nested in brass plate 10.5mm thick.
waterjetprofiling - overview
Waterjet cutting is an excellent cold cutting process with minimal or no finishing. With a tight tolerance control, no heat affected zone common in flame, plasma or laser profiling and a jet width of approximately 1mm diameter, extremely intricate designs can be cut. As it is an erosion process, the range of materials that can be water jet cut is vast, only ever limited by the material's characteristics. This means reflective, fragile, soft, hard materials and even hardened tool steels and glass can be cut. The list is endless.
Safire Waterjet use the latest computer technology to control the dynamic Waterjet cutting head enabling us to offer straighter edges and an all round more accurate cut. We also use a very powerful job nesting program that has a range of features to assist in waterjet profiling your parts, making best use of materials and time. Simply supply a cad drawing, shape, sketch or template and we will work from this to program the machine. With endless possibilities, your designs and ideas can be produced for you by us.
