HOW IT WORKS

Waterjet cutting is one of today’s fastest-growing technologies and is quickly becoming a leading fabrication process. Waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure stream of water with an abrasive such as garnet to make the cut. No heat is generated during Waterjet cutting, eliminating the risk of material distortion. Edge finish of Waterjet machined parts is smooth and satiny, with no jagged edges, slag or burrs, eliminating the need for other finishing processes such as grinding.

Waterjet cutting technology utilizes high pressure water with an abrasive substance to create a cutting tool that travels at three times the speed of sound. With this tool, virtually any material can be cut with or without an abrasive in some cases. The Mitsubishi control, combined with a CAD-CAM generated CNC code, allows for simple or complex shapes to be cut. Speed and accuracy (compensation is within ±0.005” per 36” length) are easy to achieve with the Waterjet Intelligent Taper ControlTM System.

CAPABILITIES

Waterjet cutting is suitable for nearly any material, and can cut any material up to 6" thick.

We have software that allows us to make high quality ducts, fittings, flanges and brackets. We can create standard parts for HVAC roofing and piping, utilizing a comprehensive library that has round, rectangular, oval, and combination fittings. Fully customizable parts are possible by changing dimensions, offsets, angles, sizes, and shapes. Shapes are drawn in PlasmaCAM, AutoCAD, and DesignFab.
