Robotic Waterjet Cutting Machines

Robotic waterjet cutting systems have been used for decades in the automotive, aerospace, boating, and energy sectors, requiring an articulated robotic arm for cutting six-axis angles.

The versatility of waterjet technology is unmatched compared to other machines, as you can cut food, foam, aluminum, metal, paper, stone, glass, titanium, granite, FRP, all from the same robotic arm.

There is no heat affected zone (HAZ), the robotic arm is omni-directional for cutting of contours, and no secondary finish is required.

Based on your needs, whether it is for one robotic arm for the stone industry to twenty cells of robots for the automotive sector, KMT has the largest OEM network of robotic integrators as well as the largest range of waterjet pumps, from 15hp to 200hp, and from 55,000psi/3.800bar to 90,000psi/6.200bar, for your application and industry.

Robotic Waterjet & Cutting Systems


Advantages of Cutting with Waterjet:

  • No heat or chemicals are used. Only pure water
  • No Material Deformation caused by heat
  • No Hazardous Fumes or Vapors
  • No need to clean or sharpen the cutting tool
  • No Reworking, or minimal reworking
  • No Compression cutting
Robotic 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 applications. Waterjet robot cutters use an abrasive additive to create a clean, burr-free cut that does not require secondary finishing – saving both time and money.

Waterjet Cutting Cell | Technology by Shape Process Automation

Waterjet cutting has become an almost unavoidable step in the manufacturing process of a large percentage of automotive components. From 2-dimensional flat stock to 3-dimensional molded components, metals to fabric and plastic composites, waterjet has proven to be an effective, efficient machine tool.
