Building & Construction

Waterjet is the perfect answer for slitting, cutting and shaping a whole spectrum of building and construction materials including fibre cement sheet, composite panel, insulation, bonded sheets, acoustic panelling, thermal barriers, glass, tiles and porcelain.

Building & Construction

 With the ability to cut curves and shapes from laminated materials with no blades, dust or fumes, waterjet resolves a whole raft of problems faced by operators needing a customisable and efficient process to cut and shape large volumes of material.
Materials Commonly Cut By Waterjet: 
  • Aluminium composite panel 
  • Laminated sheet products
  • Bonded sheets 
  • Insulation & thermal insulation 
  • Acoustic panels 
  • Decorative panelling 

Fibre Cement Slitting Line by Performance Waterjet / REI

Waterjet is extremely efficient technology for slitting fibre cement and building products and boards. Performance Waterjet can supply a turnkey waterjet slitting system to suit your application.

Why Use A Flow Waterjet for Cutting Building Materials?

Waterjet technology is best answer for cutting fibre-based boards, cement and stone products due to the fact that there is no blade wear, no dust emissions and no chipping of the material. Waterjet uses an ultra-high pressure stream of water mixed with abrasive as a powerful cutting tool which cuts through the hardest material in virtually any thickness. 

Waterjet machines cut building materials with unmatched accuracy 

Flow waterjet technology enables operators to load common DXF files onto the equipment, set cut positions and required edge finish, and cut multiple parts within a tolerance or + / - 0.1mm. 

Faster cutting of construction materials

Flow waterjet cutting machines are able to cut and pierce virtually all fibre cement, board, composite panel, stone, marble, ceramic and tile products no matter how brittle the material. Waterjet also eliminates the need to sharpen saws or blades, and as this is a wet process there is no dust.
By adding a Flow waterjet to your operation, many building product manufacturers are finding that waterjet is an essential part of their day to day operations.
