New machine cuts foam, rubber, plastic, steel, glass, marble and granite
Lauren International has announced the addition of a new WardJet D-55 waterjet cutting machine into its facility. The addition of the WardJet D-55 expands Lauren’s capabilities in cutting irregular shaped rubber, plastic, metal parts, glass, marble and granite.
We are very excited about expanding our capabilities with this machine,” said Chuck Laney, President of Lauren AgriSystems. “The waterjet will allow us to make irregular shapes with a high degree of accuracy out of a variety of materials. Our speed to market will be accelerated giving us more ability to support our customer’s custom design needs. Our design and manufacturing engineers will be able to rapidly try ideas and make changes to get projects completed,” said Laney. “Adding this machine will trigger growth and opportunity for us. We can utilize this machine to allow area companies to get short runs of custom parts that make more sense to cut with water,” added Laney.
The WardJet D-55 can cut steel, aluminum, stone, plastics, composites, glass, ceramics, rubber and a myriad of other materials— all up to 10 in thick with no heat-affected zone while attaining manufacturing precision and superior edge quality. The machine, which is also applicable on cutter blades, bushings and die facings extends Lauren’s existing core of fabrication and machining offerings.
