We work for blacksmiths, glassmakers, architects, interior designers, artists, cutting almost any material like: Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper, Nylon, Steel, Acetal, Polycarbonate, Polystyrene, Fiberglass, Brass, Carbon fiber, Ceramics, Titanium, ABS, PVC, Sterling Silver, Spring Steel, Bronze, Rubber, Granite, Marble, Laminates among others.
WaterJet cutting is an economical way to cut 2D and 3D shapes in a very wide range of materials with no tooling costs. The unique process provides reasonably good edge quality, no burrs and usually eliminates the need for secondary finishing processes. WJETUSA also generate no heat so the material edge is unaffected and there is no distortion. Creating custom part this way can cut single or multi-layer materials from as thin as .001" to as thick as several inches. The process yields no poisonous gas when cutting plastics or rubber. No custom tooling is normally needed, making it economical for short and medium runs.
Shapes possible include 2D and 3D shapes with cutouts of almost any complexity. Examples of parts that are often cut this way include: Enclosures, Brackets, Robot Parts, Washers, Front Panels, Sheet Metal Boxes, Motorcycle Parts, Auto Parts, mechanisms, facades, railings, fences, metal panels, etc.
Cost reduction options include reduction of total cut length, reduction in number of holes and cutouts and reduction of material hardness and thickness.
