"Toolmaker for
  Canmakers"
Here are  some of the benefits to using a waterjet:

    * Cheaper than other processes.
    * Cut virtually any material:
          - pre hardened steel
          - mild steel
          - exotics like Titanium, Inconel, Hastalloy
          - gummy 304 stainless
          - most steels cut at the same speed, whether hardened, or not.
          - Copper, Brass, Aluminum: They are a cinch!
          - brittle materials like glass, ceramic, quartz, stone.
          - laminates
          - flammable materials
    * Cut thin stuff, or thick stuff
    * Cut wide range of thickness’ to reasonable tolerance up to 2” (50mm) thick
    * Up to 5” (127mm) or thicker where tolerance not important, or in soft materials.
    * No Heat Generated / No heat affected zones - this is cold cutting!
    * No mechanical stresses
    * Cut virtually any shape:
    * Only one tool to qualify / No tool changes required
    * Fast turn around on the machine. 
    * Leaves a satin smooth finish, thus reducing secondary operations
    * Clean cutting process without gasses or oils
    * Narrow kerf removes only a small amount of material.
    * Your "scrap" metal is easier to recycle or re-use (no oily chips!)
    * No "scaley" edges, which makes it easier to make a high quality weld
    * Machine composite materials, or materials where dissimilar materials are glued together
    * Machine stacks of thin parts all at once.
