Plastic and Soft Material Cutting

There are a number of soft materials that can be cut with water only, a non-abrasive cutting method. Our Dynamic WaterJet is ideal for projects that involve a thin, soft, and/or porous material. For example, when cutting porous materials, an abrasive may often become trapped in and on the material, leaving a dirty appearance. Our Dynamic WaterJet produces parts that are completed with a much cleaner finish.

The following is a list of benefits of water only cutting:

  • Increased detail
  • No heat cutting
  • Fast processing
  • Ability to process soft materials
  • Low cutting power
  • Clean and accurate cuts
