WARDJet's pneumatic drill mount automatically drills a hole through material at a specific offset from the waterjet cutting head. Once the hole is drilled, the waterjet then starts the cut inside the predrilled hole. The CAD/CAM program IGEMS automates the entire process.
The drill, which requires an air compressor capable of 25 CFM at 90 PSI, is available for mounting on any of the company's waterjet systems.
