Eliminates the risk of discoloring or deformation
Flexibility of Saw/Waterjet and Robotic combination systems
Create Intricate Designs
Waterjet cutting is the ideal method for the production of
architectural materials used for inlays, borders, accents and company logos or
the cutting of floor and wall covering elements. It opens up a whole new field
for creative designs and solutions.
In this area, the most commonly cut materials are concrete,
granite, marble, sandstone and tiles. As the cutting gap width is minimal, no
material is wasted. The technology is also very suitable for the cutting of
combined materials, for example inlays in stone and metal or combinations of
tiles and glass.
Waterjet machines using the KMT Waterjet pumps are
perfect for creating corporate logos in decorative designs on walls or inlaid
into floors, countertop parts, faucet and sinkholes as well as a smoother
radius off sharp edges of slabs cut with saws.
KMT Waterjet is the only global waterjet manufacturer that
partners with a variety of OEMs to offer many choices of waterjet tables from 2
Axis, 3 Axis, 5 Axis, dual cutting heads with a gantry waterjet table, as well
as a combination waterjet and SawJet for cutting long slabs.
Ideal for Job Shop owners, stone cutting, marble cutting, granite
cutting and tile can all be fabricated by designers, for nontraditional
“zero gap” cutting circular, square, oval, tile rugs, stone rugs, borders,
murals, entry ways, kitchens, bathrooms, octagon patterns, medallion designs,
border and accent tiles, polished, unpolished and textured porcelain.
Many architects specify the use of waterjet tables because of the
intricate patterns and inlays in the hotels on the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada.
