Bridging the Gap with WARDJet's Z-2543 Waterjet
The November 2019 issue of MetalForming Magazine features WARDJet’s Z-2543 waterjet in an article describing two very successful UK bridge building projects.
The first project involves the restoration of the Royal Albert Railway-Bridge, a bridge dating back to 1859. Cutlass Mechanical Engineering (CME) selected WARDJet’s Z-2543 waterjet for the project. Its ability to cut parts distortion free, deterring any type of stress-related cracking, was a critical component to the success of the job. In the second project, 40 tons of duplex stainless steel and approximately 3,000 half-inch thick parts were cut for the Tintagel Cornwall Bridge, a bridge dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. Over a period of six months, CME operators were cutting almost continuously, totalling 600 hours on their WARDJet waterjet.

Outfitted with an 11ft by 18.7 ft cutting envelope, two cutting heads, and optional camera for remote viewing, the Z-2543 waterjet handled both jobs perfectly, ensuring parts were cut with the highest precision while maintaining structural integrity.
