The Advantages of Waterjet Cutting
No HAZ (Heat Affected Zone)
Laser, plasma, and oxy-fuel cutting methods produce heat that can damage sensitive surfaces during cutting. Waterjet's cold cutting system eliminates problems caused by cutting with heat. The waterjet process cuts fragile and flammable materials, such as plastics and polymers, with speed and efficiency.
No Shear Stress
Warping, or deformation caused by force, occurs with most pressure cutting processes. Materials like carbon fiber, glass, acrylic, and laminates require more effective cutting methods. Waterjet cutting is the answer.
Envision Rapid Cutting uses a state-of-the-art WardJet ZXA-613, made in Tallmadge, Ohio.
Our WardJet has a single cutting head with two (2) axis capability and a gigantic cutting envelope.
Each panel or piece can be cut to 144” long by 72” wide. (12’x6’)
Most materials respond well to cuts up to 6 inches thick, often with no secondary finishing. Depending on the material and your purpose, we may be able to make cuts up to 10 inches. Check with us if you have a question about this.
Waterjet cutting attains much higher tolerances than normal cutting, allowing us to precision cut the most intricate designs. Normal kerfs (cutting widths) are .04 to .05 inches. Depending on the material, higher rates may be possible.
Our CAD/CAM software is one of the most versatile design programs in the world. It uses or converts most mainstream file types, including Autocad .dfx and .dwg – even scanned images. Check with us if you have a question about your design specs.
ERC will cut as few as one prototype, up to many thousands. We serve B2B customers, professional architects, artists, contractors, designers and individuals with DIY projects. Importantly, we offer incredibly fast turn-around for times when you need it yesterday.
Note: Envision Rapid Cutting is located in Norman, Oklahoma. Our low regional delivery fees can minimize freight costs to your job site, often saving you a bundle. We can also assist by helping you arrange delivery to any job site in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri or the world.
ERC approaches every job as if it were our own. We partner with you from first design draft to project completion. By becoming a member of your team, we can you assure the highest level of satisfaction.
Our customers achieve substantial cost savings from old-school cutting processes by reducing waste, maximizing material use, creating common cutting lines and by saving on expensive labor and handling.
For some processes there is no better way to cut than waterjet. For some, there is ONLY waterjet.
