Originally, waterjet cutting was used primarily for cutting and slicing rubber materials. Waterjet cutting rubber materials requires no abrasive and uses a small, water-only stream typically 0.005″ in diameter, to provide even the finest detail in all your rubber product needs. Rubber products have many common uses in almost all industries, as well as FDA-certified or compliant rubber gaskets for food manufacturing equipment.
Waterjet Cutting Rubber-backed Metals
Rubber-backed metals – No Problem! Using our abrasive waterjet cutting technology we are able to process all types of rubber laminates, including expanded-metal backed, solid-metal backed and fabric backed rubber sheets. Waterjet cutting offers one of the cleanest cut edge as compared to other cutting technologies without delaminating the substrate materials.
With our state-of-the-art waterjet cutting equipment, we can process rubber down to your exact specifications. With a quick turnaround time and perfect precision, you won’t find a better way to cut your rubber requirements.
