Our system package has been assembled to offer a complete solution to fulfill your cutting needs. With the rise of a variety of industries seeking in-house capabilities to design, develop and create their own projects and wanting to avoid expensive outsourcing, owning a Water-jet Profiling System is becoming an essential part of their business.

Swift-Jet Water Cutting Machine offers:

Waterjet Applications | Materials
The Swift-Jet CNC Waterjet Profiling System can cut almost any material. In pure waterjet mode, it can quickly and accurately cut soft materials such as rubber, foam and other gasket material. In the abrasive waterjet mode, it can cut almost any other material over a very wide range of thicknesses.

  • Unbelievable cut quality.
    Creates in-house research and development opportunities.

CNC Waterjet cutting offering precision cutting, this smart machine can be used to cut textiles, rubber,
foam, plastics, leather, composites, stone, tile, glass, metals, food, paper and much
more.In fact, cut quality is so good the customer is considering there second system.

Water jet cutting is a non-thermal cutting method using only natural sand and water to cut almost any material. The brittle cutting process give a smooth cutting surface with no slag or heat affected zones, and there is less need for post processing. All materials can be cut by the same water jet machine, from soft rubber and plastics to the hardest metals and ceramics. A CNC operated water jet cutter ensures identical parts independent of volumes and with a minimum of waste material.

Swift-Jet is our new, affordable and easy-to-use waterjet profiling solution. Offering precision cutting and superior build quality, this smart machine can be used to cut textiles, rubber, foam, plastics, leather, composites, stone, tile, metals and much more. Our machines are calibrated using the very latest Renishaw ball bar testing equipment, ensuring outstanding dynamic positioning and repeat-ability.

Waterjet can certainly replace plasma, laser, milling, routers, and EDM for many applications, but more importantly, most workshops find that waterjet complements these other technology investments thus improving overall shop efficiency.

Waterjets typically vary only cut speed going from one material to the next and cutting forces are very low, resulting in very short art-to-part. This attribute is very unusual in manufacturing. The equipment is extremely quick to setup without the need to change cutting parameters such as water pressure, abrasive type, abrasive flow rate, and orifice size when going from one material to the next.

Waterjet systems like the ones from Engineering Machinery are available with different levels of precision capability. A machine tool equipped with a basic waterjet cutting head, sometimes called a conventional waterjet head, can cut a +/- 0.254 to 0.381 mm accurate part out of any material up to approximately 3” (76.2 mm) thick. Beyond that the finished part is less precise. It is possible to cut a part to tighter tolerances with a conventional waterjet, but to cut to +/- 0.127 mm tolerance the machine cut speed must be reduced to approximately 10 to 15% of maximum cut speed.

Improving material utilization adds cash directly to the bottom line. Fabrication/engineering workshops usually cut from large plates and machine shops normally cut from bar stock or smaller work pieces.

The manufacturing community at large has a basic knowledge of waterjet – the fact that it’s a cold cutting process and can cut almost anything. When faced with a tough manufacturing problem, they often seek out shops with waterjets to give the technology a try.
