Fiberglass Cutting and Trimming with KMT Waterjet

Waterjet cutting fiberglass panels does not delay cutting processes as there is no tool change. With blades, since fiberglass is hard, blades become dull, replacement takes time, and reduces productivity.

There are virtually no limitations in waterjet technology including cutting FRP panels, paper, plastic, insulation, rubber, corrugated cardboard, as well as harder materials including metal and stone.

KMT Waterjet has a global alliance with over 100 Original Equipment Manufacturers, who specialize in designing standard to custom waterjet machines, slitters and conveyors, integrated with KMT Waterjet, the provider of UHP waterjet pumps, cutting heads and genuine aftermarket parts and technical services. From one cutting head to slitters with multiple cutting nozzles, KMT Waterjet has your answer.

No matter what you are cutting, the KMT OEM network can help you find the best waterjet cutting solution for your company. So, What Are You Cutting? Let us help you.

Advantages of Cutting Composites with Waterjet:

  • NO Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) which is ideal for fiberglass and more
  • Safe for the Environment; no toxic fumes or dust and garnet is disposable
  • Ideal for cutting up to 8” of materials depending on density of product
  • Can pierce material directly without the need for a pre-drilled starter hole
  • No tool or blade sharpening
  • High or low surface pressure flexibility for sensitive or thick materials
Waterjet machining is a cold cutting process, making it ideal for automotive, medical and aerospace applications where the material cannot be affected by heat. Nearly every type of cut is possible, from using waterjet tables for rapid hole drilling to detailed cuts for automotive and boating applications.  Waterjet cutters use an abrasive additive to create a clean, burr-free cut that does not require secondary finishing – saving both time and money.
