Frequently asked questions

Which waterjet machine is the cheapest?

The question you should ask yourself should not be which waterjet cutting machine is the cheapest, but rather which waterjet machine can give you the most. Software is usually a big problem solver on any machine, and IGMES is passionate about problem solving.

Which nesting software is the best?

IGEMS nesting is something we have been proud of for a very long time. We are the definie market leader in nesting sheet material and can be used for waterjet cutting machines, fiber lasers and other sheet cutting machines. When you get more out of a sheet, the costs dramatially reduced per part.

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.
