The November 2019 issue of Modern Metals magazine features WARDJet’s A-Series waterjet in an article that describes the success of KeyBar, a product that replaces the keyring with a multi-tool key holder that resembles a pocket knife.
Creator Mike Taylor formerly worked as the chief engineer of historic district hotels in Savannah, Georgia. It always amazed him how his workers appeared to be busy whenever he was around, until he figured out that his jingling keys were giving them advanced warning. This was the inspiration for KeyBar, a multi-tool that stacks keys on top of each other, as well as other small tools. After learning how to make pocket knives watching YouTube videos and following Instagram accounts, Taylor created KeyBar for family and friends. Business started to take off and before long, Taylor started shopping around for a waterjet to help him keep up with the demand. He decided on the A-Series, a compact waterjet with a small footprint, enclosure, and touchscreen.
Taylor needed training, as he had never worked with a waterjet before. He found WARDJet’s Customer Support easily accessible, able to answer all his questions so he could expand his business right away. Today, Taylor employs seven full-time staff, cutting exotic alloys for his KeyBar invention that helps make the workplace a much quieter place.
