Reduce your cut-out processing time by 75%!
Waterjet is an excellent choice for cutting a whole spectrum of glass products due to the fact that one process can be used to quickly transition from concept to cut without tool changes.
Today, this technology is used for power point cutouts in glass splash-backs, holes for door hardware, balustrade panels, shower screens mirrors and table top inlays.
Waterjet cutting of glass has advanced considerably over the last decade and today this technology has become widely accepted as industry standard as glass processors prove the benefits afforded by current waterjet cutting technology.
Today, waterjet is commonly accepted as the fastest and most cost-effective way of processing glass which requires shaping and/or internal cutouts.
Applications range from cutting basic power points in splashbacks, to balustrade panels and stair treads, to shower screens and architectural artwork.
If you're cutting glass with a CNC, we guess a power-point position in a splash back would take approximately 45 minutes to complete.
Did you know power point positions can be cut in 12mm thick glass in less than 70 seconds when waterjet is used?
Think about the time and cost savings for your business for EVERY power-point cutout when using waterjet. It's efficient, cost-effective and means you'd be able to take on bigger projects.
In case you missed it earlier, here's the proof:
Many glass processors are proving waterjet to be an essential part of their day-to-day operations. As an Australian glass processor states:
“For glass cutouts, the CNC units were just too slow...Internal cutouts were a bottleneck in our production until we installed our new waterjet.”
If you wish to invest in equipment which will dramatically improve efficiency and productivity, then a Silverline system is for you.
Silverline systems combine consistency and versatility to cut almost any shape from any thickness glass and perform tasks beyond the capability of conventional glass processing equipment.
Reasons why this technology is very popular in the glass industry:
SigmaNEST is an intelligent solution which delivers reductions in cost-per-splashback by optimising use of raw material, reducing tool travel time, and providing the flexibility to work with a whole spectrum of materials.
Cutting Shop is a raster to vector conversion program which allows operators to import scans, sketches and images or draw and cut from scratch.
