Machine Characteristics

Patented Opal Waterjet Combo is able to combine the advantages of quick plasma cutting with precision of water jet.
Synergistic effect of combining two different technologies allows the cutting machine to exploit both assets. The cutting machine offers versatility and flexibility for a wide range of users form small to big companies.

Plasma cutting

The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the cut. This technology can be use to cut all metals, because they are electrically conductive.

3D water cutting

Water cutting is separating the material with a jet of water is the most accurate method for cutting and chamfering almost any kind of material. Water cutting provides the highest quality of edges and lack of heat affected zone.
