Waterjet Cutting

Fast, Precision, Cost Effective Cutting

Why Waterjet?

When materials are too thick or hard, not suitable for laser cutting, or not cost effective for wire EDM or other machining processes, Waterjet is the answer.

Waterjet is a CNC machine tool process of cutting metals as well as a wide variety of other materials such as titanium, Inconel, brass, tool steel, glass, stone or ceramics, and composites.  By concentrating a narrow column of water and abrasive garnet at up to 60,000 PSI, complex shapes are cut with superior edge quality and minimal burr.

Our Waterjet features a CNC programmed and controlled head which tilts dynamically to eliminate taper in the cut. Thickness capacity ranges from 1/16” to 8” thickness.  Depending on the material and type of cut, tolerance of +/-0.001” can be achieved.

Advantages of Waterjet Cutting:

  • Can cut materials up to 8” thick
  • Low setup cost
  • No heat affected zone
  • Dynamic head eliminates taper
  • Superior edge quality
  • Tolerance +/-0.001 to +/-0.005
  • Minimal burr
  • Minimal secondary finishing required
