Testing & Quality Control
When it has to be right, do the testing in-house
Prepare material test samples without slowing the assembly line
Assembly lines cannot wait while you cut and test raw material samples. An in-house water jet can prepare samples fast and locally, to accelerate the testing cycle so that the line isn’t waiting.
Get test samples without damaging the material

Be sure test specimens meet the standards
Your test samples need to comply with standards, from the ASTM in the US to the ISO in the UK. Cutting test specimens with the CNC accuracy of a WAZER keeps every specimen consistent and in compliance, so that your tests are in compliance.
Cut specimen samples while preserving the properties of the material being tested
There are many methods for preparing test samples including laser, plasma, or traditional machining. However most methods risk distorting the original properties of the material being tested. In contrast, waterjet cutting delivers clean, readily inspectable specimens without corrupting the underlying material.
Cut specialized samples for special tests

Cut new laser weld specimens for inspection every shift
Welds, especially on structural parts, must be validated to ensure they meet the design and strength requirements. However, cutting into welded components with plasma or with mechanical saws can damage the welded surface and undermine the ability to inspect the weld quality. Fortunately waterjets cut with a cold clean process, that will not distort the weld integrity.
Cut Any Material.
In Your Own LAB.
Used by Engineers and Technicians Everywhere
We used to outsource the machining of sample coupons on the wire EDM, but the WAZER has quickly become an influential machine in my shop.
I can cut samples on the WAZER while I do other things. For what it costs, it’s a no brainer.
The pace for testing and production is greatly accelerated.
The affordable industrial-caliber waterjet
WAZER is an affordable waterjet that cuts almost anything. Since it does not require specialized infrastructure, software or training, you can now produce in-house what you could never have done before.
