Waterjets

Denver Rubber Company offers precision waterjet cutting services utilizing the new Wardjet 2543-5 dual head five-axis cutter and our X-1530 waterjet. Our state-of-the-art waterjet cutters provide high-speed precise cutting capabilities for fast, cost-efficient production.

The new 5-Axis cutter is a revolutionary leap in waterjet cutting technology. It incorporates the traditional X-axis (back and forth), Y-axis (left and right) and Z-axis (up and down) of older waterjet cutters and adds a second A -axis that angles the cutting head from the perpendicular and a C-axis that rotates around the Z-axis.

Unlike typical heat cutting methods, waterjet cutting doesn’t cause steel to distort or change the molecular structure in alloy materials. It also eliminates or greatly reduces slag and damaged material and produces a product with minimal to no burring.

Capabilities
Waterjet can cut 10″ thick stainless steel and can cut even thicker material (18″ thick titanium) if the application demands it.

Sheet Size
4’x8′, 5’x10′, 6’x12′

KNIFE TABLES

Denver Rubber Company’s five knife tables represent the optimal dieless cutting solution for custom parts manufacturing and traditional gasket fabrication.

Knife tables provide a wide range of cutting, creasing, marking and punching tools capable of processing materials up to 50mm in thickness. Our dieless knife table is driven by CAD software that provides automatic nesting to decrease material waste and improve efficiency. The lack of a die allows increased production and faster turnaround times for new products and repeat orders. The knife table is unmatched in reliability and production capacity for gasket cutting and custom part fabrication.
