Waterjet is an excellent choice for cutting a whole spectrum of glass products due to the fact that one process can be used to quickly transition from concept to cut without tool changes.
Waterjet cutting of glass has advanced considerably over the last decade and has now become widely accepted as industry standard as glass processors prove the benefits afforded by current waterjet cutting technology.
Commonly accepted as the fastest and most cost-effective way of processing glass which requires shaping and/or internal cutouts, waterjet is used for:
Basic power point cutouts in glass splashbacks
Holes for door hardware
Shower screens & mirrors
Table top inlays
Reasons why waterjet technology is accepted as “the norm” in the glass industry:
Waterjet is extremely fast process as compared to traditional glass cutting methods
Waterjet produces exceptional edge quality – little additional treatment required
Cuts precise internal cutouts not possible with other machinery
Waterjet offers operators flexibility no other process can offer
Effective with laminated glass
Efficient & cost effective
Did you know power point positions can be cut in 12mm thick glass in less than 70 seconds when waterjet is used?
Think about the time and cost savings for your business for every power-point cut out when using Watex waterjet. It's efficient, cost-effective and means you'd be able to take on bigger projects.
