Waterjet cutting

Flexible WATER JET CUTTING

Advanced Glass Industries has two waterjet platforms, and a capacity for cutting optical materials up to 140” long by 70” wide by 11” thick. Our new Flow Mach 4 2020C can cut with 5-axis motion at 95,000 PSI output. Our water jets machines are capable of cutting all optical materials including fused silica, ZERODUR, and Pyrex—plus granite, metals, and more. A dynamic water jet cutting head minimizes taper, even when cutting thick materials. In addition to cutting almost any shape you can imagine, our water jets can also etch and drill optical materials.
