AXYZ International, a leading global manufacturing of CNC router and knife cutting systems, recently acquired WARDJet, a manufacturer of waterjet cutting systems and custom solutions. Currently, WARDJet machines are demonstrated at WARDJet’s Ohio-based manufacturing facility. Now, AXYZ International is installing the WARDJet X-1530 waterjet cutting system in its sales and demonstration facilities in Anaheim, California; Calgary, Alberta; and Burlington, Ontario. This will provide greater exposure to the versatility of waterjet cutting technology.
The X-1530 waterjet is a versatile machine that saves floor space while still being able to handle the toughest, industrial-sized jobs. Engineered from the ground up, it provides superior speed, accuracy and strength. “We researched other technologies in the industry and discovered waterjet cutting machines. What’s great about waterjets is they work on material that we can’t process on a CNC router,” said Greg Jenkins, Vice President, Sales, for AXYZ International.
Waterjet cutting machines are ideal for a multitude of industries including defense, aerospace and industrial foam cutting. Materials commonly cut with waterjet machines include alloys, steels, laminates, composites, plastics, acrylics, rubber, gaskets, fiberglass, and glass. “We can’t cut glass, steel, marble, stone, or ceramics on a CNC router, and those are all very easily managed with a WARDJet waterjet cutting machine. This expanded ability gives our customers broader access to cutting technologies and opens up additional opportunities for them. Waterjets can handle greater thicknesses and the harder materials that CNC routers aren’t able to cut,” said Jenkins.
AXYZ International will install the X-1530 in these three facilities within the coming weeks. The long-range goal is to put a waterjet cutting machine in all AXYZ International demonstration and showroom facilities.
