Frequently Asked Questions about our dynamic waterjet cutting:
What are the differences between a dynamic waterjet and a conventional waterjet?
The dynamic waterjet signifies the greatest improvement in waterjet cutting EVER and a huge step forward in thick material processing. Custom Laser is very proud to be one of the few manufactures that is involved with this technology. A dynamic waterjet will automatically adjust its cutting angle to prevent a taper on our customers parts. With a conventional waterjet cutter the cutting head does not angle thus creating a very large and undesirable taper.
Why should I use Custom Laser’s dynamic waterjet services over laser services?
Laser cutting is a very productive process and is desirable on many applications, however certain projects can only be produced by a dynamic waterjet cutting. There are virtually no thickness limitations with a waterjet and because our system is equipped with a dynamic wrist action head, there is virtually no taper – even on 8-inch-thick steel!
What types of material can Custom Laser’s dynamic waterjet cutter process?
The types of material we can process is endless. Since there is no light input reflective materials like brass and copper can be processed without any problems. There is also no heat input so plastics, rubber or composites and even such materials as glass, stone and very hard ceramics can be processed because there is no burning or heat-affected zone (HAZ).
