Over view 

Abrasive waterjet cuts at various speed allowing us to control quality, speed and cost.  Below illistrates the 5 different settings we cut material at and the finish cutting edge it will leave.  The finish does change depending on material that is being cut.

Ideal cutting 

Waterjet Cutting is ideal for, short-run part production, just-in-time manufacturing, tooling, prototype part development, and machine repair parts.


 •      Delivers, fast, clean, smooth cuts reducing secondary operations
 •      Does not create heat that will adversely impact sensitive materials or cause mechanical stress
 •      Eliminates the need for expensive tooling or complex fixture costs
 •      Capable of cutting virtually any type of flat material; including metal, plastic, stone & wood
 •      Can cut up to a 4000 mm x 16000 mm sheet of material, up to 9” thick ?    
       Hypiont delivers virtually zero taper with most materials
 •      Environmentally “green” system with quiet and clean operation


Waterjet Cutting Quality Index Q1  Q1 - Quality 1 is the fastest  cutting speed for our abrasive  waterjet. Q1 is used for rough  cutting when edge finish, taper  or tolerances are not important. Waterjet Cutting Quality Index Q2  Q2 - Quality 2 is the  second fastest cutting  speed for our abrasive  waterjet. Q2 is used  for cutting when finish  is not important and  secondary machining  is used.
Waterjet Cutting Quality Index Q3  Q3 - Quality 3 is the most  commonly used setting. It  offers good to very good cutting  finish, depending on material  being cut. Cutting speed is  good and able to hold standard  tolerances with tapper control. Waterjet Cutting Quality Index Q4  Q4 - Quality 4 delivers  a very good to  excellent  cutting  finish. Secondary  finishing is usually not  nessecary. Holds tight  tolerances with tapper  control.
Waterjet Cutting Quality Index Q5  Q5 - Quality 5 delivers the best  cutting finish available with an  abrasive waterjet. No  secondary finishing is required  and holds tight tolerances with  tapper control. Cutting is very  slow and more expensive.
