Waterjet Conveyor Cutting & Slitting Systems

For over twenty years, KMT Waterjet has partnered with our global OEM network of waterjet system manufacturers to assist them in the design, engineering, manufacturing and installation of waterjet conveyor systems for use in the food and paper industries.

The food industry has used conveyors to cut of products including fish, baking items and a variety of produce. Waterjet slitting has been used to separate sheets of paper.

There are major advantages of waterjet cutting vs. blade cutting, as knives and ultrasonic blades become dull and need to be replaced as well as the potential for cross-contamination using metal materials. Waterjet cutting involves slitting with clean water throughout the production process.

The materials or food being cut by multiple waterjet nozzles is a non-stop cutting process ranging from one dimensional to 5 axis robotic vision scanning waterjet cutting systems.

The waterjet cutting line can also be automated for picking and packaging of the products.

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
Waterjet machining is a cold cutting process, making it ideal for food, paper and corrugate applications where the material cannot be affected by heat. Nearly every type of cut is possible, from multi-head slitting paper processing and cross-cutting fresh vegetable production.
