Our Story

Where it Began

As a seasoned contract manufacturer, Walter Maurer, Director of Waterjet AG in Aarwangen, Switzerland, decided to co-develop a high-precision waterjet cutting technology to meet and exceed his customer’s expectations. His source of inspiration was a collection of unfulfilled customer inquiries he had collected over several years. Working with a regional technical institute in Switzerland, all of the important components such as pressurization, valve, ductwork, cutting head and abrasive system were analyzed during a two-year research project. Today, the result is an abrasive water jet that is bridging the gap between existing cutting technologies including EDM and Laser.
