Make Functional Parts In Tough Materials, Fast

Waterjet Cutting For Engineers

Avoid waiting weeks for outsourced parts, and create functional prototypes in the same materials as in the final products.

Prototype Using the Correct Materials

Quickly prototype new mechanical designs using the same materials that will be used in production. Have accurate prototypes ready for testing the very same day. Design, Cut, Test, Iterate.

See how Bob Clagett uses WAZER to make an aluminum gimbal handle.


Iterate Fast with Shorter Design Cycles

Cut multiple design variations in-house, much faster without outsourcing. The “cold process” waterjet cuts without heat, avoiding edge hardening and material distortion created during the cutting process.

Create Tooling for Stamped Sheet Metal Parts In-House

Create production-ready rigid sheet metal prototypes by adding stamped bosses. Work in-house and deliver same-day with no tooling costs.

Transform 2D Designs into 3D Forms

Create and fine-tune the exact geometry you need with precision sheet metal cutting. Use simple 2-dimensional designs to create complex 3-dimensional parts.

See how WAZER and DIWire engineers collaborate to prototype a stainless steel sterilization cage.


Hold tight tolerances for intricate, multi-part assemblies

Cut multiple sheet metal parts and create complex mechanical assemblies. Hold tight tolerances by undersizing your holes and then post-reaming them to size. Or dial in WAZER to get the accuracy you need.

JOSH O’BRIAN
DIE DESIGNER

Sending to an outside waterjet – best case a few days, worst case a few weeks. We need it done in hours.

Patrick C.
TEST DESIGNER

With a CNC mill/lathe, the fixturing to actually hold down those thinner materials becomes very difficult… it’s really nice to throw it on your cut bed and get everything cut out of it.

MARK K.
CTO

We can tighten up that R&D iteration loop and conduct the test in the same day.

The first waterjet that fits on a desktop

The WAZER is a small-footprint, industrial-quality 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.
