Agriculture Industry Waterjet OEM'S for Produce Harvesting, Processing and Cutting

KMT Waterjet Systems has a network of reliable, highly trained professional OEM's (Original Equipment Manufacturers) who specialize in water jet machine technology.

These OEMs will design and manufacture the produce harvesting, conveyor or cutting table waterjet system that works best for your application, and will team up to insure that you and your employees are trained with all the tools and support you need for success and higher profits.

For decades, water jets have been used as a manufacturing process to harvest and cut variety types of produce, romaine lettuce, celery, onions, green bean calyx cutting and much more. Pure water cutting offers the greatest added value by cutting products in a sanitary environment reducing the cross contamination found in blade cutting systems.

According to Food Production Daily Magazine, “waterjet technology is one of the fastest growing major machine tool processes in the world due to its versatility and ease of operation.” The use of pure water in waterjet cutting systems capable of cutting at incredible speeds up to Mach 3, has received USDA equipment approval for creating a nearly bacteria free hygienic cutting process method.

Since no knife blades are ever used, there is no downtime changing out or sharpening dull blades and eliminates the risk introducing metal shards into your product.

A diamond orifice is used to maximize the waterjet cutting life, typically the size of the stream is a width of a human hair at speeds up to 3,000 feet (914 m) per second. This small kerf width is so thin that food will not be compressed or washed out.

For perfect portion control and improved shelf life for produce, KMT Waterjet is the solution.

Advantages of Cutting Food with Waterjet:

  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved process
  • No need to clean or sharpen the cutting tool
  • Ideal sanitary and efficient process for cutting food
  • Waterjet allows for higher yield of produce
  • No heat or chemicals are used. Only pure water
  • Non-compression cutting for longer & improved shelf life
  • No metal detection equipment needed
  • Cross-cutting for Fresh Cut produce production
Waterjet machining is a pure water cutting process, making it ideal for Industrial Food Processing applications where blades can contaminate product and require sharpening. Nearly every type of cut is possible, from using waterjet tables for intricate cake shapes to conveyor with multi head cross-cutting for portion control, less waste and maximum produce yield.
