Waterjet cutting is often used during fabrication of machine parts. It is the preferred method when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods. Abrasive Water-jet cutting is used in various industries, including mining and aerospace, for cutting, shaping, and reaming. With Water-jet, there are no heat affected zones and therefore less risk of micro-abrasions or cracks which destroy aircraft integrity. Some of the materials we can cut include stainless steel, steel, glass, aluminum, wood, brass, copper, stone, plastic, marble, acrylic.
What We Do
Aerospace Industry - Application Areas
Aircraft manufacturing processes require precision with of zero margin for error. Jet engines, turbine blades and composite materials for aircraft are just some of the components we produce.
From Railings, posts, parking systems, electrical boxes and trunks, gates, metal paneling, industrial strength, patterned
Automotive Assembly Manufacturing
Preparing parts for extrusions and fabrication of machine parts.

MATERIALS WE CAN CUT
BENEFITS OF WATERJET CUTTING
With our process, we can “nest” the parts you’d like us to cut tightly in place to best utilize your material. This allows us to save large portions of the raw stock that would typically be lost with other traditional machining methods.
Because of the high velocity of the cutting stream, any smoke, fume or airborne dust particles from cutting materials such as fiberglass, asbestos, and beryllium are no longer a concern. This greatly reduces problems arising from exposure to hazardous work environments.
Waterjets are eco-friendly in a sense that they don’t produce any hazardous waste. The actual cutting abrasive we use is a ruby called garnet, that is ground into sand. There are many different types of species of garnet with different mineral compositions, all of which have come from the earth and then after our cutting process is then, again returned via landfill.
