The Rest of the Story: Software's Effect on Cutting Speed

When it comes to evaluating abrasive waterjet performance, cutting speed is typically one of the most important attributes. There's been a lot of discussion in the industry around cutting speed and pump power. But that's not the whole story if you're cutting anything other than a straight line. If you're cutting parts with any kind of complexity, like corners, curves and...

The Whole is Greater than the Sum of the Parts

When someone looks at adding an abrasive waterjet to their shop, there are many points to consider, such as the size of the machine and the operating requirements. Ultimately, though, it comes down to one thing: money. Whether saving it or making it or a combination of both, money is the dominant concern.
