Waterjet cutting:

Even more precision for unprecedented performance

How does it work?

Laguiole Village has invested in a unique waterjet cutting machine. We are the only manufacturer to possess this cutting machine. Our machine produces our knives with exemplary quality, more precision and unequalled performance, as well as producing them in an environmentally-friendly manner.

The cut is made with a waterjet from a pump at more than 4000 bar or over 58,000 PSI with a diameter of 0.8 millimeters. The speed of the jet leaving the cannon is equivalent to Mach 4.2 or 4.2 times the speed of sound. 

 

There are many advantages of the waterjet cutting machine:

-              No deformation

-              Material savings

-              Environmentally-friendly cutting: no heating, no gas emission

-              Freedom of creation or design

-              Customising without restriction
