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 suitable 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 two foreign Customers and received positive reviews and encouragement from both to continue with the industrialization of the process.
In 2008, with the support of a manufacturer specialized in customised CNC machines, 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 of more than twenty times that of a standard water jet machine.
