We guarantee timeliness and precision with our Waterjet metal cutting services
Waterjet technology is one of the most versatile cutting processes available and is well suited for high performance metal cutting.
It can easily cut up to a 300mm thickness and is versatile enough to cut a variety of shapes and metal materials such as:
- common materials mild steel and aluminium
- titanium, Inconel® and brass
There is absolutely no mechanical stress or heat distortion so secondary processing can usually be eliminated, which means you get a satin smooth edge directly off the waterjet table.
Parts can be tightly nested or common-line cut which produces less scrap and saves you money.
Plus it's OK to have inconsistent material that is not 'laser ready' and there is no need for extensive part clamping which limits the lateral or vertical forces.
Whatever the shape or thickness you need to cut we can help!
