Abrasive Waterjet can cut near-net or final shapes, including holes, out of any material, any thickness, without creating a heat affected zone (haz). Standard tolerances are ± 0.010 inch for thickness up to two inches. Tighter tolerances of ± 0.005 or better are achievable. The cut is smooth, with no burr or slag. Our cutting envelope is 72" x 144" x 8". With our new Dynamic Waterjet machine we can cut without taper, yield much higher precision than standard waterjet.
Materials that can be cut include:
Steel (mild, stainless, tool, high alloy, hardened)
We can cut any 2D design in sheet material. The cutting process is computer numerically controlled. We can work from your computer file, a drawing or a sketch. Preferred format is a .dxf file of the part only, accompanied by a dimensioned drawing (please see our file specifications). Any size job is welcome, from one piece to thousands.
