PWS Worksurfaces has invested £250k in a state-of-the-art water jet machine, enhancing the company’s manufacturing expertise and material palette, and further improving the precision and detail achieved when cutting stone.

The investment was driven by the increasing popularity of ultra-compact materials such as Dekton, Neolith and Lapitech, which the company sees as being an important element of its sales mix in 2016 and beyond.

Comments Jeremy Redshaw, PWS Worksurfaces’ manufacturing manager: “The new water jet significantly speeds up the manufacturing process, which previously was carried out with a saw and CNC at much slower rates to avoid fracturing. The investment reaps significant benefits for our customers, not only offering enhanced design features, but representing a reduction in lead time from seven to five days.”

The Indoline 5Model waterjet is part of the Technocut range by Italian supplier CMS.
