Cutting tiles and stone with water jet
Tile waterjet cutting with a waterjet and at super prices?
The unique ability of a waterjet cutting machine with an abrasive waterjet to cut very intricate and filigree patterns at high speed without breaking the workpiece offers you unique possibilities.
This technology enables us to realise almost any idea for you and to manufacture it for you at a favourable price.
For example, we can waterjet cut the following materials and tiles for you:
- Artificial stone or other materials for worktops or floors
- Stone tiles
- Porcelain tiles
- Ceramic tiles
Compared to traditional cutting tools and CNC machines, our waterjet cutting systems drastically reduce the processing times for tile waterjet cutting. These savings ensure cost-effective production that delivers a perfect result for a good price, despite the high accuracy and speed.
Perfect cut edges
Cutting with the abrasive waterjet causes no heat or surface stress to the stone or tile material. This allows us to produce even very filigree designs. In contrast to conventional methods of processing tiles, there is no longer any need to rework the edges and cuts. The material retains its original appearance and strength.
Compared to conventional saws and CNC machines, the very thin cutting width of a water steel cutting system enables perfect cutting of almost any design. With our machines, we can easily cut complicated sink and tap holes for you, as well as difficult corners on panel edges. We also have less material waste when cutting with the waterjet, compared to other methods.

Waterjet cutting - the technology
The water is put under high pressure by a specialised high-pressure pump, which is specially designed for extreme pressures. Due to the extreme water pressure of up to 6000 bar, the water can reach twice the speed of sound when leaving the nozzle. For cutting relatively soft materials such as rubber and insulating materials, we only use the pure water jet, which is bundled and extremely accelerated. For waterjet cutting of firmer and high-strength materials, extra sharp, pointed sand is added to the waterjet. This sand is also called abrasive and serves as an abrasive that virtually grinds away the material during cutting.
Strictly speaking, this cutting process is not cutting, but high-speed grinding.
