About Waterjet Cutting

Waterjet technology is a process that uses high pressure water (up to 50,000 PSI) focused through a diamond orifice, then mixing with an abrasive to cut through virtually any material with high accuracy. The waterjet is controlled with a CNC machine, and the water stream leaves the focusing nozzle at about .040” (about the size of a pencil’s lead)

Here are a few features of our waterjet facility:

-Linear drive 2-axis table

-Dual cutting heads

-60″x120″ cut envelope

-Up to 4″ thick material, restricted by the table setup. Can do thicker depending on material shape.

-Almost any material (we’ve even cut a meteorite)

-2 ton overhead crane for ease of material handling

-Waterjet specific software for nesting parts with high efficiency
