In general, our standard service is more economical and is appropriate for many uses. However, for thicker parts and for pieces which must connect or touch other parts along the machined edge, it's very worthwhile to order low-taper waterjet cutting.

For instance, you probably want to use standard waterjet cutting with these types of items:

  • Instrument panels
  • Signs
  • Stencils
  • Decorative pieces designed to be viewed straight on to the original material face
  • Enclosure faceplates

Low taper waterjet cutting works better for:

  • Gears
  • Bearing blocks
  • Thick parts that fit or slot together along their cut lines
  • Thick pieces that must rest on the machined edge
