More Films With a Water Jet Cutting Theme

After our recent blog about films which could – or should – have featured the power of the jets – we are back with a follow-up.

Keep your suggestions coming!


Kevin Costner’s career took a pounding with his now infamous flop about life in a post-apocalyptic world where the polar ice caps have melted and life is hard. For all.

But how much easier would Costner and co have found life if they had a computer controlled cutter from TMC to hand? Let’s not forget that in our cutters cold water – no shortage of that in the film – is mixed with garnet – a type of mineral – and forced throughjets at a pressure of 87,000 psi.

He would have made mincemeat out of his enemies.

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

We all remember the scene where Richard Dreyfuss builds a mountain-like structure out of mashed potato as he is affected by UFOs and possible alien life.

Well, he could have done a much better job with a water jet cutter couldn’t he?

After all, the cutting edge in our cutters can tilt 60 degrees, meaning that complex jobs which previously required secondary cutting can now be undertaken in one process. A piece of cake. Or mashed potato if you will.

He could also have probably fashioned a neat flute out of some tube to play along to the famous tune…

Apollo 13

Based on a true story, Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon starred in this now calssic tale of survival in space after their moon mission goes badly wrong.

There is a key scene where the good men and women of Nasa have to find a way to get a square peg into a round hole  to fix the stricken craft’s oxygen filtration system.

They manage it, using lots of gaffer tape and socks among other items on board. But if the astronauts had been kitted out correctly, with their own water cutter, then who knows what modifications they would have been able to carry out?! Houston, we don’t have a problem after all.

We are not film experts, this is just for fun, But we can cut the most intricate shapes in both 2D and 3D, all from our 10,000 square feet base in Macclesfield where we serve the entire of the UK and beyond.
