ï»¿Since our establishment in 2004 Waterjet Creations has provided a dedicated WATERJET CUTTING and ABRASIVE WATER JET CUTTING service to our customers.
We have over 40 years experience in Laser and Waterjet cutting.
With over 40 years combined Laser and Waterjet experience in cutting a wide variety of materials and thickness to achieve their desired results, we are uniquely placed to provide you with the best cutting service possible. We have invested in the latest Waterjet Technology from Bystronic , to ensure that we can provide you with a quality and competetive service.
We have two Bystronic BYJET 3015 machines
We have two Bystronic BYJET 3015 machines , one equipped with a Roatry axis for tube and RHS cutting and the other machine equipped with a drill at each cutting head to process delicate materials and laminates.
We also have a range of polishing equipment
We also have a range of polishing equipment, including a Grindingmaster 2000 series with a 900mm wide polishing capacity, which can give a range of grained brushed finishes from the very coarse to 320 grit.
We deliver components quickly to meet our customer’s demand
The key to Waterjet Creations future success is our ability to deliver components quickly to meet our customer’s demands. We can import both DXF and DWG files into our dedicated CAD/CAM software package from our customers and quickly have the design efficiently created in the desired material and on our machines quickly turning ideas into precision machined parts
Water jet Cutting - Technical Overview
CNC Water Jet cutting uses a very high pressure jet of water upto 55,000 psi (3930 bar), usually with an added abrasive media. Water Jet cutting provides a huge thickness range capable of accomodated from 200mm down to 0.1mm and with accuracy of up to 0.05mm over 1m (positional and repeatability).
The cold process does not heat the parent material, so there is no heat affected zone, burning or surface hardening.
Unbeatable detail to material thickness ratio means very small and precise holes can be cut into very thick material. Suprisingly, Water Jet Cutting competitive pricing beats lasers and milling machines in many circumstances and keeps on going at thicknesses which lasers could only dream of
Waterjet Creations - Overview & Process Advantages
The advantages of the Waterjet process extend beyond its cost competitiveness with other cutting techniques. Waterjet allows for the fabrication of many materials where there are no effective alternative methods. Waterjet also offers advantages for cutting complex shapes and intricate designs, not otherwise economically achievable.
Waterjet Creations has quickly earned a reputation for the knowledge, experience and turnaround capabilities necessary to serve the exacting demands of its customers.
Waterjet Creations offer the accuracy and reliability of the Byjet machine allied to the experience of our operating personnel to offer our customers,
Virtually burr-free cut edges without the heat generated structural changes
Close nesting of shapes giving economical conversion of high value materials
Multi head operation allowing competitive cutting of flat materials
Typical examples of the use of Waterjet Technology.
Titanium, steel, aluminium, Cr-Ni-Co alloys as well as composites – materials which are preferred for use in various components in both engines and bodies
Building and Construction :
Decorative stone, tile, marble, and granite, concrete, plasterboard, and insulation materials machining: gears, castings, stainless steel components, cooper,
aluminium, titanium and their alloys.

Advantages of Waterjet Cuttingï»¿
- Low Cost.
Our abrasive Waterjet-machining centre uses your existing DXF files. No costly dies,
fixtures, or elaborate CNC programs required.
- No Minimum.
Low start-up costs allow for inexpensive, highly accurate production for quantities as
small as one item.
- Fast Turnaround.
Working from your drawings eliminates the need to wait for dies or fixtures.
- High Accuracy
Cuts are accurate within ± 0.125mm (0.005").
- (5Smooth, Flat cuts.
Water jet cuts are smooth, similar to a fine sandblasted finish. Flexible materials cut
with less taper than cuts made through die cutting.
- No Heat Build-up.
Materials like glass, rubber, and plastic will not melt during the cutting process. No
melting, no heat affected areas, no structural changes.
- Cuts just about anything.
Waterjet machining is capable of cutting just about anything.
- Less Waste.
"Parts nesting" provides optimum use of sheet materials, reducing scrap.
The Waterjet cutting process involves no chemicals, gases or noxious liquids. Abrasive Waterjet cutting uses garnet (a high grade sand) as the abrasive. This creates a very clean process, preferable to other methods of cutting in terms of environmental impact, eliminating disposal of by-products and waste water. There is no dust created when cutting stone with Waterjet technology, thus providing a safer work environment for those using Waterjet to cut stone inlays and countertops.
“These examples serve only as an indication of the current use of Waterjet technology. There are many more possibilities. In the future other new application areas will open up”
