Waterjet cutting marble tile
For example, within the interior, we can create custom mosaics, medallions, tabletop or countertop inserts for various items. Mosaics are especially well suited for kitchen countertops, a backsplash, or for flooring. Consider adding a favorite quote on your kitchen backsplash…a floral design or checkered pattern into a tabletop or kitchen island.
For the exterior, there are an equal number of opportunities. Applications outside your home or business include inserts for your walkways, sidewalks, and other stone and tile pieces surrounding pools, patios and fireplaces.
In this area, the most commonly cut materials are concrete, granite, marble, sandstone and tiles. Waterjet cutting is the ideal method for the production of inlays and company logos or the cutting of floor and wall covering elements. It opens up a whole new field for creative designs and solutions. 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.
As stone and tiles have a low ductility, we recommend producing the first hole with a reduced cutting pressure of 800 bar. This minises the risk of chipping and cracking. For sandstone, the amount of abrasive can be reduced, as the loosened stone particles serve as a natural abrasive.
