Customized and detaild reports on jobs, nests, etc..
An extensive material database with optimized feed rates and compensation tables.
2D & 3D simulation
Simulate your jobs in 2D or 3D with crash control and NC code preview.
Part & sheet database
Store your parts and sheets on a database to have convenient access to them in the future. All stored parts and sheets can easily be accessed from the Auto nest.
Our TVL (Taper angle control, Variable offset control & Lag control) formula calculates many different compensation factors and gives you the best cutting result with straight edges.

Frequently asked questions
Can you get straight cuts with a waterjet cutting machine?
The waterjet is not like other machines. We're handling a live tool which needs compensation in every possible situation. Therefore we've come up with an impressive TVL formula which tilts, offsets and lags the jet for excellent cutting results.
What is the best waterjet cutter?
Most waterjet cutters will do a good job of cutting with 3 axes. But when you cut bevel parts, you need to be more exact. You also need a CAD/CAM software that will support your application. Like IGEMS CAD/CAM.
Can waterjet cut 3D?
A waterjet can cut 3D parts! What limits the cutting is the CAD/CAM software and the limits of waterjet cutting itself.
