Water Jet Cutting – A Quick Approach to Cutting

Water Jet Cut Metal and Plastic
Water Jet Cutting Twin Head

Last year Partwell invested in an extension to the Lancashire based premises to create space for a new water jet cutting machine. Traditionally Partwell have focused on bespoke plastics using the latest CNC router technology, specialising in turning ideas in reality in the form of three dimensional bespoke plastic parts.

It was a natural growth to invest in a water jet cutting machine to enable a quick approach to cutting two dimensional products from plastics but also other materials such as metals, synthetics, foams, rubber and ceramics etc.

Water Jet Cutting - What do we mean by a quick approach?

Firstly, water jet cutting process is much faster than CNC router cutting for the machining of two dimensional bespoke parts. The Partwell water jet cutter is a twin head cutting operation, which means both heads cut simultaneously.

The machine also has a very quick to set up time, this allows for cost effective small volume production runs; especially when compared to tooling orientated cutting technology such as routers.

Water Jetting - Good value cutting

The speed of the cutting process obviously provides a good value for money cutting service; Partwell can also work with free issue material.

Unsure if water jet cutting is suitable for your product or application?
