Longveld have a precision waterjet profile cutting service which utilises an extremely accurate technology and high pressure 60,000psi water and garnet cutting stream. Our Techni Waterjet 4000-X2 operates as follows:
We can work with your drawings or create CAD files for you from sketches or patterns. Waterjet is ideal for low volume one-offs, prototypes and fine intricate shapes.
Waterjet is a cold cutting process so there is no heat affected zone. This means no warping or surface hardening, and no grinding required for weld preparation.
Waterjet will cut virtually any material faster than many conventional cutting tools, for example:
Waterjet can also cut fiber-reinforced materials, reflective materials, uneven surfaces and stacked layers of different materials.
Waterjet utilises a very fine cutting stream, or kerf, and this combined with no heat affected zone, enables tight nesting of only 1mm apart. In today’s world of high-priced raw materials and limited resources, waterjet’s small kerf and part-on-part nesting capabilities ensure maximum material yields, therefore increasing cost-effectiveness.
