The advantages of using waterjet fabrication for your projects extend far beyond making beautiful and intricate floors. The high pressure stream of water mixed with garnet sand allows for cutting a wide variety of materials. Materials that are traditionally difficult to work with are now available in the pallet, expanding the reach of the designer’s creativity. And because all cuts are computer-controlled, you can always expect a perfect fit when joining multiple materials. When both of the materials are cut with the same programming, the resulting joint is all but seamless.
Glass and acrylic have always been very difficult to incorporate with other materials. Cutting glass by hand has many limitations and cutting acrylic into shapes can be both messy and time-consuming. Waterjet cuts acrylic and glass in many ways not otherwise possible and allow it to be integrated with stone, metal, ceramic and more.
The durability of stainless steel that makes it a wonderful material to use also makes it very difficult to work with in fabrication. Waterjet cutting gives designers options previously thought impossible.
In addition to inlaying of materials, there is also overlaying. Stacking two metals on top of one another gives the look of a cast product. In the picture below, stainless steel is textured, waterjet cut and overlaid to give a stunning effect.
