Choosing Waterjet Cutting for Rubber and Plastic

Vital to almost all major industries in some shape or form, rubber and plastic are the flexible and dependable parts of many machines and devices. Hydro-Lazer is a market leader in cutting these materials in a variety of thicknesses and sizes to suit your needs. Rubber is a malleable material that can bend and even warp under extreme temperatures and plastic can do the same if not treated properly. Here are just a few reasons why choosing Hydro-Lazer to water-cut your materials makes excellent sense.


Rubber products have common uses in almost every industry, including FDA-certified or compliant rubber gaskets for food manufacturing equipment. It’s vital for the material to maintain the proper shape without imposing any thermal stress that could warp and deform. Waterjet cutting rubber requires no abrasives and no heat, allowing for the rubber to be cut cleanly and with little waste. No burrs or cutting marks will be present afterward, leaving only a perfect line. Programmed cutting makes production time short, saving you both time and money.
