Because the waterjet stream is a “floppy tool,” quality levels will vary with cut speed. The speed and quality can be optimized to whatever levels are required for the application.

Waterjet quality levels are specified in a range from 1 to 5. A quality level of 1 is the fastest and least accurate. Level 5 is the slowest and most accurate. It is important to determine quality requirements because it can significantly affect cost.

Waterjet can cut through a variety of materials, so there’s no reason to delay. Contact our team, and learn more about our impressive cutting capabilities. We’re sure to offer the perfect service to suit your needs.
