To keep up with the ever-changing demands of our customers, our Fabricating Division has purchased a new water jet machine.This abrasive waterjet has a work envelope of 72" x 144" and its versatility can cut virtually any material, including metals, composites, and stones, with a cutting accuracy of +/- 0.003 ranging in thicknesses of 1/8 " to 3".

Water jet cutting is unique in that it makes use of abrasive substances to facilitate water erosion, a process that is typically useful for materials that are sensitive to high temperatures and other machining methods. But water jets are capable of much more: Because the water jet cutting stream can easily be modified to suit the application, a water jet machine can execute water jet cutting, water jet shaping, water jet carving, water jet reaming, and other related processes. To learn more about our water jet cutting services please see below.
