Waterjet Stone Cutting with OMAX

Waterjet Stone Cutting with OMAX

Waterjet stone cutting has proven to be the most reliable, trusted method for a smooth, professional finish.

The type of machine used for cutting certain materials is instrumental in shaping the standard of the output that’s produced.

If you’re after high calibre produce with a smooth finish, then an OMAX waterjet is just the thing for you.

As well as producing optimum output, a waterjet cutting machine can also be instrumental in preventing health hazards associated with cutting stone – silicosis.


Prevent Health Hazard Silicosis

Choosing the correct cutting solution for stone is more than just a smooth finish – there are complications that can arise when care is not taken.

Silicosis is a deadly lung disease that arises from stone cutting, and generally impacts workers in quarrying, mining and construction.

According to a recent article published by the Victorian Government,

Stonemasons are at higher risk due to the cutting and polishing of artificial stone benchtops which contain high concentrations of silica.

Silicosis mainly stems from the cutting of stone materials, containing crystalline silica, which produce the deadly dust.

Thankfully, by cutting wet materials with the OMAX waterjet range, you can reduce the risk of contracting silicosis as there is a much lower chance of the dust being produced.
