The founders of WAZER built racecars at UPenn and spent hundreds of hours cutting sheet metal by hand. Penn Engineering did not have a waterjet cutter because they're so big and expensive. So, they built a small one as a school project.
After graduating and a couple years of development at HAX accelerator, WAZER created the first desktop waterjet. It’s the only desktop machine that cuts virtually everything, including steel, titanium, aluminum, glass, stone, tile and carbon fiber.
Traditional waterjets cost upwards of $100,000 and are too large and messy to fit in most workshops. WAZER costs $7,500. Since WAZER is so affordable compared to traditional waterjets, it makes it accessible to small businesses and schools who want to iterate quickly on designs without having to spend time and money sending their projects out to be made by an external waterjet service.
WAZER is also perfect for manufacturers. The WAZER provides professional solutions that keep their large machines running while their WAZER is used for prototyping and providing low-volume manufacturing.
WAZER's high-velocity jet uses a combination of high-pressure water and sand-like abrasive particles to cut through the workpiece, achieving a high level of digital precision. WAZER has a cut area of 12" x 18" and is capable of cutting up to ½" aluminum and ¼" mild steel.
WAZER is easy to set up with no special electrical or water requirements. It runs on 110V AC / 60Hz and all you need is a water source like a sink or a hose pipe along with a drain. If you have a sink and two outlets you are ready to go. WAZER is compact and contained, it's fully enclosed, making it safe, clean and quiet to operate.
