The company decided to involve an important Italian University Centre in the project. Between 2007 and 2008 it developed a new water-jet machine capable of guaranteeing a level of productivity that met our needs.
We conducted an experimental test campaign (DOE), aimed at defining the ideal characteristics of the cutting nozzles and of all the process parameters of pure water-jet cutting applied to foam materials: we were thus able to develop the architecture of a new cutting machine, capable of simultaneously handling more cutting heads.
On the back of such work, we produced the initial samples for the first foreign customers and received positive reviews and encouragement to continue with the industrialization of the process.
With the support of a manufacturer specialized in customised machines, in 2008 Vito Rimoldi S.p.A. built its first cutting machine specifically designed for this type of production, with accuracy characteristics unrivalled on the market and a productivity that finally met the new needs.
