Glass Water Jet Cutting

At Bear Glass we pride ourselves on staying up to date and keeping up with latest cutting edge technology. That being said, Bear Glass is excited to introduce our new water jet technology! From intricate glass shapes to mirrors, glass ornaments, and more, there’s almost no glass cutting application that a water jet glass cutting system can’t tackle. Both thin and thick glass materials can be cut and detailed with a precise cutting stream.

Glass Water Jet Cutting by bear glass

waterjet cutting technology is a great method for cutting glass because it allows for contours and shapes that cannot be achieved with other cutting machines at a reasonable cost. Be it glass table top, shower door, large glass wall blocks, or antique mirror waterjet can cut everything with perfection.

Glass has a tendency to crack, so it is very important that the initial holes are produced with a reduced pressure of 7,200 PSI/500 bar to 11,600 PSI/800 bar. Subsequently, the pressure must be increased to a cutting speed that is cost-effective.

 

Various uses of Waterjet cutting in
Glass & Mirror products:

  • Tabletop inlay
  • Flat glass with numerous contours
  • Stained glass
  • Church mosaics
  • Light fixtures
