Advantages of Cutting Stone with Waterjet:

  • Eliminates most secondary finishing… no rough edges
  • Little or no waste of raw material
  • No toxic fumes or dust (in contrast to saws & blades)
  • No blade or saw sharpening
  • Ability to cut the most intricate stone, tile and marble designs
  • Flexibility of Saw and Waterjet combination systems
Waterjet machining is a cold cutting process, making it ideal for architectural applications where the material cannot be affected by heat. Nearly every type of cut is possible, from using waterjet tables for rapid hole drilling in countertop sinks to detailed cuts for floor inlays.  Waterjet cutters use an abrasive additive to create a clean, burr-free cut that does not require secondary finishing – saving both time and money.
