EQUIPMENT

Since we began in 1991 the materials and technologies used for flooring have advanced from plain lino/vinyl designs to extensive use of customised logos in more varied materials. The new generation of machines being made promise a further wave of developments, whereby customers are moving to more interesting designs in more varied materials.

We are able with our equipment to cut virtually any sheet material with extreme precision and produce stress free cuts without a heat affected zone.

From single item to multi-batch production, Euro-Floor Design can cut almost any type of material, which can be produced cost effectively.

This technology is backed up by state of art CAD / CAM systems and can accept drawings in almost any format to cut the most complex of designs.

Euro-FloorDesign

Customers have the option of supplying CAD / CAM compatible formats for direct input or can have our team of highly experienced CAD / CAM programmers to work from artwork and non-dimensional shapes. Both options result in a clean and precise cut.

WATER ONLY

Water Only cutting works by producing a high velocity fluid water jet at pressures up to 50,000 P.S.I. At the work piece the jet is travelling at twice the speed of sound. The jet is focused through a sapphire or diamond orifice, the size of which is dependant on the material being cut.

Typical jet sizes range from 0.04mm to 0.25mm diameter.

The benefits of Water Only cutting are:

  • Creative designs cut without discolouration to cut edge.
  • Larger designs can be cut in sections.
  • In-house design service taken from your artwork or computer file.
  • Gasket and insulation materials profiled without tooling costs.
  • Thick foam and rubber cut with parallels sides.
  • Prototypes to batch production quantities easily accommodated.
  • Pre-printed materials cut to minute intricacy.
  • Flexible materials supported on a sacrificial base to ensure accurate cutting.

Maximum Material thickness = 200mm *
Programming accuracy = 0.01mm

ABRASIVE CUTTING

Abrasive water cutting is the same initial process as water only cutting, however once the pressurized jet has passed through the orifice, it enters a mixing chamber. This creates a vacuum, transferring controlled amounts of abrasive into the jet stream. The water and abrasive are realigned in a focusing tube giving a cutting tool of 0.8/1.0mm diameter. In this instance it is the abrasive, which is the cutting tool.

The abrasive water jet cutting process is capable of profiling virtually any sheet or plate material, ranging from Aluminium to Titanium.

The benefits of Abrasive Water Cutting are:

  • Aluminium, stainless steel, brass cut with no tarnishing.
  • Complex and intricate designs accommodated.
  • Accommodates highly reflective and polished surfaces.
  • Ceramic floor and wall tiles cut to your design.
  • Granite, marble, slate and limestone designs also created.
  • Laminates and composites cut with no delamination.
  • No heat affected zones – HAZ.
