WaterJet Cutting

Waterjet equipment can cut a wide variety of materials using very high-pressure jets of water. The machine is suitable for almost any substrate…. metals, plastics & rubbers. 

AQUASIGN can cut substrates up to 150mm thick and 1300x1300mm.

We stock the best quality materials such carbon and stainless steels and exterior plastics to ensure quick turnarounds to meet your project needs.

Benefits of Waterjet cutting:

  • Cuts materials faster, more precisely and without taper
  • Compared to flame cutting, waterjet cutting does not tarnish metal surfaces
  • Reduced cutting width and excess meaning less material wastage
  • High outputs per job using dual cutting systems and multilayer cutting
