Intermac Primus 184 Waterjet

In May, we recieved a new Intermac Primus waterjet from Italy. The Primus is a highly advanced 5-axis waterjet, which cuts granite, glass, metals and other materials with a jet of supersonic 60,000 psi water travelling at 810 m/s. Abrasives such as sand are added to the water jet to help cut through tougher materials, in a combination of abrasion and erosion. Because of the much smaller cut size compared to a saw blade, the waterjet enables us to cut much more defined and complex shapes, with high speed and precision.
