    Glass is a hard material composed of sand and an alkali metal that at a high temperature become fused together. It is considered to be an amorphous or non-crystalline material which is characterized by unique physical properties. Due to its brittle nature glass fragments easily as can be seen from the ease by which it shatters. Accompanying its brittle qualities, it is characteristically a very hard material.

  • 5-Axis WaterJet Machining: Opening a Wealth of Opportunities

    5-Axis Waterjet

    product-wj22With the revolutionary 5-Axis CNC cutting technology gaining momentum in the marketplace, many shops are transitioning to 5-Axis WaterJet CNC machining systems to satisfy a broad range of cutting needs. As the name suggests, 5-Axis CNC cutting allows the WaterJet machine to maneuver at five different axes simultaneously, which is a feature that has drastically changed the landscape of the CNC cutting marketplace. This feature differs from a more standard WaterJet device which moves along only 3 axes (X,Y,Z). 5-Axis technology gives machines the ability to create complex shapes in a single set up, ultimately enhancing production levels. This increase in efficiency is especially evident in waterjet machinery.

  • CNC WaterJets vs. CNC Lasers

    High-pressure CNC WaterJet machining offers unique advantages over other cutting technologies. These machines use a concentrated stream of water to erode materials with a high degree of accuracy and have no heat-affected zone. CNC Laser cutting, on the other hand, involves focusing a laser to melt, burn, or vaporize a material. The main advantage of lasers is that the laser never touches the material its cutting, thus avoiding contamination and reducing the size of the heat affected zone (HAZ). Both Lasers and WaterJets are attractive options for any machine shop, but WaterJets are more cost-effect than lasers and can cut a wider range of material. Below are just some of the advantages WaterJets offer over CNC Laser machines.

  • More than Metals: WaterJet Technology Opens Doors

    By: Dr. David A. Summers

    Wandering the aisles at the recent IMTS and FABTECH trade shows, the booths exhibiting waterjet-cutting technology always seemed to attract quite a crowd. The process creates relatively little noise, so show attendees can still communicate, and cutting demonstrations often produce the type of show trinkets that attendees enjoy keeping and showing off. And, these souvenirs serve as perfect reminders of the capabilities of the waterjet-cutting process.

    New capabilities drive new business at Mariner Forge

    Like most shops across Canada, Halifax-based Mariner Forge has been managing its way through several years of a fluctuating, fickle market. The Halifax-based fabricating business often runs full tilt with overtime, but as owner Chris Mackenzie notes, “nothing has been quite the same since 2008-09.” Mackenzie understands that to be a constantly valued element of his customers’ business, he needs to be able to offer a wide variety of services. For that reason, late last year he invested in a new waterjet to expand the company’s capabilities.
