Cutting Glass

No matter cutting glass or piercing delicate glass is not a problem with APW waterjet technology. From artistic tabletop inlays to detailed stained glass designs, users from a variety of industries have discovered the versatility and cost-effectiveness of APW waterjet.
If you can draw it, you can cut it! It can be cut like an Artwork!


Hole drilling is easy for our waterjets, as is stained glass cutting at the other end of the spectrum. There's no need to etch and break when you are cutting glass with waterjets, so there's less wasted material.

Bullet proof glass is a snap for APW waterjets to cut even though It may be able to stop a 50 caliber shell. Our waterjets is quick and powerful on cutting ballistic

Float Glass and Hurricane Glass are the growing area for waterjet industry as well. As the composition of glass clad/polycarbonate structure with laminate material, Float Glass and Hurricane Glass are very difficult to be cut by traditional methods.
Our waterjets are the superior method for cutting these glass.
