What is the accuracy of your waterjet?2022-01-27T15:20:29+00:00

The accuracy of our waterjet is .03 or 1/32 in. when running at max speed.  We can get tighter tolerances if we slow the machine down.

What materials can you cut on your waterjet?2021-11-12T17:11:07+00:00

Most anything with the exception of Metals.

What is your max cutting width/length on your waterjet?2021-11-12T17:10:25+00:00

A single item maximum size is 20 feet by 54 feet.

We can often re-register the goods and cut larger lengths when needed.

Does my carpet get wet when cutting my goods on a waterjet and does this cause mold/mildew?2021-11-12T17:08:06+00:00

We utilize such a small amount of water on the waterjet that most items are dry by the time we pick them up from the waterjet.  The stream of water is smaller than a hypodermic (shot) needle and is at a pressure of 60,000 psi. The table cuts at a speed of 2000 inches per minute.

What file types can you work with?2022-01-27T15:21:28+00:00

We recommend providing your artwork in one of the following file types:

.eps, .ai, .jpeg, .pdf, CAD or we can scan most any image including a baseball cap.

What are your turn around times?2021-11-12T17:12:20+00:00

Artwork approvals 24-48 hrs – Completed project normally within 2 weeks from artwork approval.

Are the logos printed?2022-01-27T16:02:12+00:00

No, we do not print anything (nothing topical). Each logo is cut by color on our waterjet and hand assembled/inlaid back together,  like piecing a puzzle together. Unlike ‘printed’ you cannot wear off the logo, it’s good for the life of the material.

The Inlay Process

Step 1: You send us the design of your choice.

Step 2: An artwork approval is created based on the artwork you send us. This art is proportionally sized to fit the scale of the finished product you require and then cut on a precision waterjet machine to an exact replica of the image.

Step 3: The various pieces are then assembled from the different colors of material to match the design and art proof.

Step 4: These cut pieces are assembled/inlaid back together to form the multicolored image and then welded permanently back together to produce a replica of the artwork in a much larger size.
