How fast does WAZER cut?
WAZER's Cut Rate varies depending on the material being cut and the material thickness, so there is no single answer. The Materials and Cut Rate table shows Cut Rates for common materials. If you do not see the material and thickness listed that you want to cut, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will test it.
What is the maximum material thickness that WAZER can cut through?
If a material isn’t listed, will WAZER cut it?
What is the accuracy of WAZER?
This is a tricky question with any cutting tool, because it depends greatly on so many factors, like material, material thickness, Cut Rate and desired geometry. The cut produced by the water stream is roughly 1/16” (1.5mm) in width, so that coincides with approximately the smallest feature (internal diameter or internal line width) you can cut. The Gantry is accurate enough such that hole patterns will line up from part to part.
Can WAZER engrave?
WAZER cannot engrave; it is only designed for through-cutting. Media blasting is a great process to etch on all materials that can be cut with WAZER.
Can WAZER cut materials without abrasive?
No. The hardware on WAZER is capable of cutting certain soft materials without abrasive, but this functionality is not present in the software or firmware. However, it is quite possible that WAZER will have a software and/or firmware upgrade in the future that will allow for this.
Is WAZER Food Safe?
No, WAZER is not food safe.
