Designed to compliment or replace existing processes such as: Milling, Wire EDM, Laser and Fine Plasma. We can produce your parts from drawing to finished parts in minutes.
Water Jet and Abrasive jet Cutting is the latest technique for cutting soft materials like paper through to the hardest substances such as titanium, ceramics, steel and granite. This process can even cut glass!
Water Jet Cutting is a process of machining utilizing water & abrasives that are pressurized to create a precision stream of fluid that will cut through almost any material. The water is pressurized up to 4000 bar (60,000 psi) and then forced through a directional nozzle.
Abrasives within the solution ensure that the cut is swift and smooth with minimal edge burring and no material deformation or heat-affected-zone. Temperature rise is limited to a maximum of 15 to 20 degrees Celsius and this has no effect on material temper. There is no discoloration due to heat and this is a great advantage if your part will be visible after assembly and cosmetics are crucial.
Water jet technology allows material to be cut quickly and cleanly with minimal waste and no distortion. If you have a CAD/.dxf file, a drawing, or just a concept, we will work with you to ensure that the finished product is what you desire.
The speed and quality of the cut provided by an abrasive water jet allow us to create many different parts and configurations. We are capable of producing in any quantity from prototypes to full runs of your parts or projects.
Our process exerts very low cutting force on the work piece. Complex geometry with inside corners and drill holes are obtainable. Plexiglas, Corian, rubber, and gasket materials are precisely contoured to your needs.
