What is the thickest material I can put on the machine, and what is the thickest material reasonable to cut?

For some great examples of thick cutting (About 1" thick / 25mm), this posting in the forums, where the "Stallion" sample part is cut in various hard and soft materials.

Hello, thanks for asking! ProtoMAX will cut up to 1" thick material. What type material? Anything you can usually conceive of. It's more a question of what abrasive waterjets cannot cut. The water stream does not care what the material is and our Intelli-MAX cutting models will automatically compensate for material type and thickness to create the edge quality you desire.
