Case Studies

Research into an effective way to cut greenstone becomes a game changer for Matt Carter of NZ Dimensionz.

NZ Dimensionz are manufacturers and distributors of gifts and souvenirs, servicing the New Zealand, Australian and American retail markets. Owners Matt and Rosie Carter were looking for an effective way to cut greenstone; through their research they discovered that using water was going to provide the best results, so they began the hunt for a company who could supply a waterjet cutting machine.

Matt soon discovered that when it comes to cutting using water, OMAX Abrasive Waterjets are the Rolls Royce of the waterjet industry and Matt was thrilled to find local company Roadrunner Manufacturing are the exclusive New Zealand distributers for OMAX.

Matt has been in business for many years and has bought and used a large variety of machinery in that time, so it was important for him to source a quality machine backed by a company who could provide great service for the life of the machine.

“A lot of people just sell the machine, they don’t really know anything about it and don’t stock parts. Roadrunner are different. They are practical, have a great understanding of engineering and really know how the OMAX waterjets work. Not only that, but they keep stock of all the parts here in New Zealand and they can fully service the machine. They are just brilliant to deal with.”

Initially Matt purchased an OMAX MAXIEM 0707 Waterjet to cut greenstone, but when the tourism market collapsed when COVID-19 hit our shores, it became the machine that saved their business. Matt was able to use the waterjet for other purposes, making garden ornaments and cutting metal for local engineers. Matt says,

“the waterjet is by far the most versatile machine we have, it cuts just about anything.”

Matt has been impressed with the whole process of engaging with Roadrunner, even when there have been bumps in the road.

“The Omax has had some minor issues along the way, just basic maintenance things really. It had a couple of leaks and we needed some replacement parts, but because Roadrunner keep a stock of parts and can fully service the machine, it wasn’t an issue at all.”

“We couldn’t be happier and definitely recommend them, they have such a wide knowledge about the machines they sell and their capabilities. They just really know their stuff.”
