Why are waterjets an ideal glass cutting tool? What are the benefits of glass cutting with waterjet equipment?

Waterjets are ideal glass cutting tools for many reasons:

  • Lack of Heat-Affected Zone (HAZ)
  • Ability to cut through thicknesses of more than 12”
  • Abrasive agents leave a smooth, polished edge with minimal kerf
  • Cost savings due to lack of need for secondary finishing and subsequent material damage
