Due to its versatility and ease of operation, water jet cutting has revolutionized the glass and glazing industry's capabilities, especially in the UK, It has given The Barretts Group of Companies the capability to handle complex and intricate glass cutting contracts and quickly move from job to job. We can now undertake virtually any finished shape required and cut to bespoke designs, or mass production Working to its maximum capacity, our water jet cutting machine can turn around well over 100 intricate glass pieces per day.
It can produce EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY without ever inducing heat-affected zones of mechanical stresses in glass: the process has eliminated the need for costly secondary finishing.
Water jet cutting is accomplished by SOFTWARE CONTROLLED ROBOTIC NOTION systems to facilitate an infinite variety of shape cutting.The immediate effect has been the abandoning of a need for costly hand-tool changes during a complex cutting process.
The water jet cuts with EROSION: water is pumped – at a pressure of 60,000 psi – continuously into a supersonic water jet stream, making it possible to cut through composites such as stone and thick glass. The machinery imports DXF files and CAD drawings from clients and is also capable of mass production – even with intricate cutting patterns.
No template design would be too complicated for the Water Jet Cutting system to undertake.
