Stone, tiles and other ceramic materials

For architectural design and artistic work

Cut thick granite, marble, sandstone, porcelain, tiles, concrete, gypsum plasterboards, insulation materials and mosaics for architectural designs like floors, walls, ceilings and counters as well as artistic work. With the abrasive waterjet’s unique ability to cut very complicated designs at high speed without breakage. Because of the low ductility of stones and tiles, it is vital to make starting holes for the openings by using as little pressure as possible. The stepless increase or decrease in cutting pressure turns out to be extremely useful when cutting brittle materials such as stone and ceramics, so that material damage can be avoided. The technology opens up a wide range of possibilities and it is only your own imagination that sets the limits. This applies both in terms of shape, as well as in the combination of materials such as inlays made of stone and metal, or tile and glass.

Key Benefits Increased productivity, fast cutting and high-quality parts:

  • No dust is given off as in conventional machining
  • Minimal kerf for the most detailed and artistic patterns
  • Raw material savings — reduced scrap
  • Low operating cost — waterjet orifices and abrasive focusing nozzles require occasional replacement
  • No need for extensive part clamping, minimal lateral or vertical forces
  • Single-pass cutting, depending on material thickness
  • Net or near-net cutting, little or no hand finishing
  • Reduced tooling costs, lighter, flexible tooling

Example applications:

  • Residential and industrial construction industry
  • Floors, wall coverings, facing elements, stairs, window sills, inlays, mosaics, and ornaments
  • Furniture industry
  • Kitchen worktops, tabletops
  • Working with natural stone
  • Cuts of any kind in natural and artificial stone
  • Tiling
  • Cut-outs, decorative floor and wall layout design, and ornaments
