WARDJet completed a UK waterjet machine installation at Wolverhampton-based Genius Façade in April 2021. For over 25 years, this company has been a leading designer and manufacturer of customized building envelope systems. Their products include an A1 non-combustible fire rating (the highest European fire resistance classification) and full compliance with the stringent safety and performance standards set by the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT).
X-2040 WATERJET OPTIMIZES CUTTING FLEXIBILITY
To ensure these standards were maintained, the company decided to install a WARDJet X-2040 large-format waterjet cutting machine. The addition of a pneumatic drill for pre-piercing laminated materials and the hybrid configuration of the abrasive and water-only cutting function have allowed Genius Facades to process a wider range of materials.
“The X-2040 has performed brilliantly and the service provided by WARDJet engineers exceptional prior to, during and following installation of the machine. The X-2040 has become a valuable factory asset and enabled a significant increase in production capacity.”
- Richard Bland, Production Director, Genius Facades
APEX 60 BEST CHOICE FOR COMPLEX CUTTING NEEDS
Part of the X-Series of three different-sized waterjet cutting systems, the X-2040 incorporates multiple cutting heads and provides a maximum cutting speed of 20 metres/minute. Optional machine features include an integrated water level control system and the latest Apex-60 5-axis cutting head for more complex cutting at angles of up to 60 degrees. The Apex-60 also provides a more cost-effective secondary finishing function on cut bevels, weld preparation, grinding, chamfering and countersinking which would otherwise have required additional machine staff and thus increased production costs.
