Sugino Corp. has introduced the Katana2 waterjet cutting system for cutting titanium, stainless steel, and copper. Utilizing an extra-fine abrasive nozzle, the machine can achieve cutting diameters as low as 0.012 in. at pressures up to 43,500 PSI.

With a footprint of 57 by 81 in., the machine uses 60 percent less abrasive materials and consumes four times less power than traditional waterjets, according to the manufacturer.
