  • Waterjet cutting produces a finished edge cut, reducing secondary finishing, and providing the best cost-per-part cutting compared to any other cutting solution
  • Versatile cutting of a wide variety of materials reducing secondary finish machining
  • Waterjet cutting does not generate heat, so no burning or melting
  • Parts can be stacked with precision cutting from layer-to-layer, which further reduces part cost
