Removing the operator from the full reaction force encountered when using a hand-held jetting gun is, first and foremost, the safest option. Additionally, the repeated pressure of the recoil is tiring and can only have a negative effect on efficiency and operator well-being.
Promoting products which reduce the effects of the reaction force ties in well with our strive towards increased automation in the waterjetting industry. That is why we are always keen to add to our range products which not only remove the operator from the reaction force, but from the work area altogether.
Waterjetting has come a long way. There are still applications which require the use of a hand-held lance. However, many applications which would once have been completed using hand lances now have application-specific accessories such as floor-cleaning machines and surface preparation robots.
