Samer Hmoozi, Owner of Nasa Stones, does his research. For months, Hmoozi searched for a waterjet company to meet the specific criteria for his growing business before settling on machine from Techni Waterjet.

Based in South Windsor, NSW, Nasa Stones specialises in creating high-quality stone products, from kitchen countertops to fireplaces to marble walls on the inside of elevators. The team at Nasa Stones needed a waterjet system to work as hard and efficiently as they did. Hmoozi visited a Techni Waterjet customer to evaluate a live waterjet, and knew immediately that Techni was the company he had been searching for.

“I left the customer’s location and was excited about what I saw. I was impressed with the quality of the Techni product,” says Hmoozi. “Seeing the Quantum NXT electric servo pump and the PAC 60 in operation was truly what I was hoping to find. I’ve been doing my research. Techni Waterjet comes highly recommended.”

The seven-year-old company has recently relocated to a larger facility. Incoming power supply was an issue for the new location, but it was not a problem for Techni Waterjet’s Quantum NXT electric servo pump and the Intec 713-G2 waterjet cutting system. Because of the low power requirements of the systems, they were able to operate without upgrading the incoming power supply, ultimately saving Nasa Stones money.

“The Quantum NXT is great,” says Hmoozi. “When we were doing our research on pumps, we found the Quantum NXT pump is the best in the world.”

With the Intec 713-G2, Nasa Stones has the ability to load one sheet of stone and cut all the panels, including the side panels with bevel cuts. With the integration of the PAC 60 five-axis cutting head on the waterjet, it gives them the capabilities to cut a +/-60-degree bevel with continuous rotation and account for taper compensation.

“There are new products in the market: dekton and porcelain,” says Hmoozi. “The best option for cutting these types of materials is a waterjet. Our supplier highly recommended we cut the material with a waterjet because it will lessen the chance to crack the material and also achieve a better finish.”

Nasa Stones manufactures high-end products that are often the focal point of a room, so it has to be perfect every time. Consequently, the company makes it a priority to exceed its customer’s expectations, and it wanted a waterjet company to do the same for them. After-sales support and top-of-the-line service and installation were essential. Techni invests in high-quality service technicians with more than 20 years’ experience. Knowing Techni was the manufacturer of the total waterjet system, including the software, gave Nasa Stones the confidence that it was the right choice for them.

“Techni has an excellent service team, and they make us feel like we are a partnership with them,” says Hmoozi. “There are too many reasons we have to highly recommend Techni Waterjet. The first reason is they have the greatest service technicians – from customer service to the installation of the machine to the training. The second reason is the Intec 713-G2 is doing a great job.”

Techni Waterjet will be exhibiting at Austech 2017, at stand 573.
