KMT METAL CUTTING OEM'S
KMT Waterjet Systems has a network of reliable, highly trained professional OEM's (Original Equipment Manufacturers) who specialize in water jet machine technology. These OEMs will design and manufacture the waterjet cutting table system that works best for your metal cutting application, and will team up to insure that you and your employees are trained with all the tools and support you need for success and higher profits.
For cutting metals such as cutting titanium, steel, brass & cutting aluminum, waterjet cutting is the most versatile cutting method compared to laser and plasma cutting. Waterjet table cutting can be used to cut thicker metals, including titanium and aluminum, (up to 12”/305 mm) than can be processed with laser and it offers greater precision than plasma cutting. Abrasive waterjet systems are also less expensive than laser systems, making them a solid choice for metal cutting and steel cutting in the fabrication industry.
Advantages of Cutting Metal with Waterjet:
• No heat affected zones (HAZ) • No material deformation caused by heat
• No hazardous fumes or vapors • No hardening of the material along the cut edge
• None or minimal need for reworking • No changes to the metal structure
Waterjet machine cutting is a cold cutting process and therefore is also ideal for automotive, medical and aerospace applications where the material cannot be affected by heat. Nearly every type of cut is possible, from using waterjet tables for rapid hole drilling to detailed cuts for automotive applications. Waterjet cutters use an abrasive additive to create a clean, burr-free cut that does not require secondary finishing saving time and money.
