Waterjet and Abrasive Cutting Services
Abrasive waterjet cutting is a method of cutting shapes and patterns from virtually any type of material using high pressure water and abrasive materials such as crushed garnet.
Waterjet cutting capabilities offer a flexible and accurate method of cutting complex or difficult parts that may not be suitable for die cutting or stamping and where material integrity must remain intact. Some of the benefits of waterjet / abrasive cutting include:
Minimizes tooling costs
Can produce small volume and one-time runs without the added cost of tooling.
Maximizes material yield
The precision with which the water stream cuts creates minimal kerf width allowing for tight tolerance and nesting capabilities. This in turn maximizes the yield of parts created per sheet of material.
Since waterjet cutting is not a heat process there is no warping of materials cut.
Waterjet cutting can cut through nearly any material and at thicknesses of up to 5 inches.
Typical materials include, but are not limited to:
- Carbon Fiber
- Glass Reinforced Composites
- Glass Reinforced Polyurethane
- Plastic Films
- Soft Gasket Material
- Soft Polyurethane
- Stainless Steel 304 and 316
- Thin Foils
- Thin Wax
