Water Jet Cutting Technology
Amatech offers Waterjet Cutting of non-metallic materials such as XLPE foams and HDPE that is accurate and consistent. Our water jet foam cutter is computer-driven that is capable of producing intricate shapes and profiles. Water jet cutters are extremely easy to set up and program. Efficient nesting software is used to maximize material yields, lowering your cost. We can enable design changes to be made from prototypes to final product resulting in shorter lead times
The edge quality produced by waterjet is a function of speed, pressure, nozzle size and abrasive flow rate. By comparison to die cutting, our water jet foam cutter is remarkably clean providing a superior surface that will protect your part.
