When you have a construction project that requires you to make multiple cuts, you want to have the confidence that the cuts will be precise and not affect the integrity of the material. Your typical go-to cutting method may be laser cutting, but we’ve found that waterjet cutting is far superior. Here are a few reasons why we prefer waterjet cutting over laser cutting.
- Maintain the integrity of the material: Waterjet cutting involves relatively low temperatures, so there is no “heat-affected zone” as you would find from the high heat of laser cutting. This means that the integrity and composition of your project materials are well-maintained and better built to withstand corrosive environments. You may not find the same results from laser cutting.
- Cut through any material: Waterjet cutting uses a mixture of soft water and garnet sand to cut through any material of varying thickness and hardness. We can cut through mild steel, stainless steel, copper, bronze, glass, wood, plastics, ceramic, etc. You might worry that such cutting would chip or warp materials like glass or ceramics, but the cutting is done just right to ensure smooth perfection.
- Enjoy reduced time and costs: Whether you want an intricate design cut for some architectural piece or just need more simple cuts for construction materials, waterjet cutting allows us to get the job done much faster than you might expect from laser cutting. It also allows us to do it for a much better price.
These are only a few of the reasons we believe waterjet cutting to be far superior to laser cutting. If you’d like to learn more or would like to see the differences for your next project, please give us a call.
