Waterjet Cutting

Waterjet cutting uses a stream of high-pressure water mixed with abrasives to cut virtually any material. Waterjet cutting allows for the result of net shape or near- net-shape parts. One of the biggest advantages of waterjet cutting is its inherent cold cutting quality. Materials cut using this process undergo no thermal stress, meaning no hardening or additional warping of the material being cut.

 

Metal Solutions is equipped with a 5-axis Techni waterjet, capable of cutting up to 4″ thick by 6′ x 12′. With a 5-axis cutting head, we are capable of providing a 60-degree bevel, producing parts with a true angle up to +/-60 degrees with continuous rotation.
