The First Desktop Waterjet Cutter
WAZER is the first waterjet cutter that can fit in every workshop. It cuts through any material and is compact and contained, making it, clean, safe and quiet to operate. WAZER's digital control achieves detail and accuracy impossible by hand, while freeing you up to complete other tasks.Traditional waterjets cost upwards of $100,000, but with WAZER, we’re changing that, bringing this advanced technology to every workshop.Get more news about Desktop Waterjet,you can vist our website!
Wazer is making available to everyone high-end fabrication tech that has hitherto been reserved for heavy industrial users with deep pockets.”
“It puts a precision-cutting technology previously only available to a few in the hands of the many.”Waterjets, however, are known for being large and expensive machines that require significant infrastructure and high maintenance. For these reasons most individual makers and small businesses don't have access to a waterjet, so we decided to make one that could be used with a limited budget and minimal space.
WAZER works by combining sand-like abrasive particles with a high-pressure water stream. The mixture exits the nozzle and cuts through the workpiece, removing material through a micro-erosion process. The abrasive used, referred to as "garnet", consists of rock that is ground to very small and consistent particle sizes. Garnet is a commodity, it is non-toxic and is easily disposable.
Software: With WAZER, going from design to cutting is fast. Design your part in whichever software you’re used to, like Solidworks, Adobe Illustrator or Google SketchUp (or if you aren't familiar with any we'll suggest a basic, easy-to-learn, software for you). Load that drawing file (DXF and SVG) into WAZER software and let the easy to use software guide you through setting up your cut.
WAZER comes as a desktop unit with a separated pump box, which can be placed anywhere within the vicinity of the machine. There are optional removable legs to convert WAZER into a stand-up unit.
The list below shows cutting speeds for popular materials that we have actually tested on our final prototype. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if a material you are curious about is not included. In order to bring you waterjet technology at this price point we had to reinvent waterjet cutting at a lower pressure. This results in slower cutting speeds compared to traditional industrial waterjets but still maintains the versatility of being able to cut anything.
The materials listed above were cut with WAZER using abrasive particles (garnet) at a rate of 0.33 pounds per minute. WAZER uses garnet made specifically for waterjets that must be continually purchased in order to operate the machine. Abrasive will be available on our website, but WAZER will also work with approved third party suppliers.
