Cutting soft materials: the 5 questions you should ask


The versatility of the waterjet cutting technology allows you to process a vast range of materials in different industries, such as: construction, refrigeration, automotive, aerospace, railway, packaging, footwear, and sealing.

There are 5 answers and just as many questions that help us instantly understand the reason why using waterjet technology when cutting soft materials is the best choice!


1.Increased productivity?

Productivity records an 83% increase thanks to the optimization of the cutting process with up to 10 3-axis cutting heads.


2. How can positionings be accurate?

The interaxis between the cutting heads can be adjusted both automatically with brushless motors, for a complete CAD/CAM control, as well as manually making the most of the two rows divided into millimeters positioned directly on the support bar. The heads between them guarantee a ± 0.5 mm alignment.


3. Are there long loading and unloading times?

The availability of swing configuration and pallet exchange with two work areas has been designed specifically to eliminate the loading and unloading times between cutting cycles.


4. What are the features of the cutting table?

The stainless steel Alveolar cutting table is designed to be used when cutting soft materials, guaranteeing high planarity and duration over time.


5. Are there limitations on the thickness or structure of the pieces?

The vast range of 3-axis (tecnocut waterspeedy and tecnocut smartline) and 5-axis (tecnocut smartline) processings mean work can be done on thicknesses of up to 200 mm, without structure or internal radius limitations.
