Denver Rubber Company’s Waterjet Capabilities

Denver Rubber Company’s production facility features three waterjets. DRC offers precision waterjet cutting services utilizing the new Wardjet 2543-5 dual-head five-axis cutter and the X-1530 waterjet. Our state-of-the-art waterjet cutters provide the speed and precise cutting technique that allow both cost efficiency and faster production.

The new Wardjet 2543-5 waterjet cutter is a revolutionary leap in waterjet cutting technology. It incorporates a five-axis cutter that provides 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.

TheWardjet 2543-5 cutter uses the latest advances in motion and control technology to provide world-class precision cutting. It’s ideal for cutting precise metallic gaskets and other metal products.

Water Jet Cutting Advantages

Waterjet Cutting Advantages

WaterJet Cutting offers many advantages including:
• Cuts virtually any material
• Cold cutting – no heat affected zones, and no hardening
• Omni-directional cutting – ability to cut in any direction
• Perforates most materials without starting holes
• Net-shape or near-net-shape parts (no secondary processing required in many applications)
• Environmentally friendly
• Reduces dust and hazardous gases
• Provides stress-free cutting
• Saves raw materials (small cutting kerf width, nesting capabilities)
• Faster than many conventional cutting tools

MATERIALS

Materials cut by the waterjets include:

• Aluminum
• Stainless steel
• Bronze
• Cast ironSteel
• Composite
• Copper
• Ferrous or non-ferrous metals
• Kevlar
• Mold plate
• Raw metal
• Sheet metal
• Stone
• Tool steels

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