Wardjet offers more than 20 models of waterjet cutting machines. These systems feature multiple five-axis abrasive or water-only cutting heads. Custom machine applications are also available with options such as height sensors, crash sensors, laser alignment, drill and tapping units that allow users to cut a hole and tap it with one program.
The double-screen controller with a built-in camera monitors consumable use, service and maintenance. Proactive in notifying users, it offers full remote control from another location, such as the user’s cell phone, and e-mails the status of the work performed and work that is outstanding.
