The GCM is one of the largest waterjets ever built by WARDJet, featuring both an Infini Winder 5-Axis head and a 5-Axis 24,000 RPM milling head for composite milling. The GCM has 5 feet of Z-Axis travel and is able to cut over the water table or over a part on the ground. The versatility this machine provides in terms of cutting and milling of composites is amazing. By combining both operations on a single, large format system, operators can process composites without having to move the parts to a separate machine for milling. This helps to increase accuracy of the parts as well as saving valuable time setting up a second machine.

What can waterjets cut?
Wood, Stone, Composites, Sheet Metal, Foam, Food, Glass and much, much more...
How do we keep our prices down?
This has been achieved by pioneering an innovative business model specifically aimed at helping our customers. Simply put, we cut out all of the middlemen and high cost centers that do not directly contribute to the building of a great waterjet system.
Why the extra foot of travel?
Often, when adding a second cutting head, the distance the first cutting head can move is reduced to make space for the additional head. We added the extra foot of travel to "park" the second head when not in use. This allows you to have full range of the first cutting head when the second is not in use.
Why the independent carriages?
The benefit of having separate cutting heads on completely independent Z-Carriages is the freedom the operator gets to place the heads as close or as far apart as desired within seconds. Each Z-Carriage has its own motor driven height adjustment, and can be configured to have an independent height sensor.
How thick can waterjet cut?
Waterjet can cut 10" thick stainless steel without too much difficulty, but can cut even thicker material (18" thick Titanium) if the application demands it.
