Abrasive Water Jet

Abrasive Cutting Water Jet

Abrasivejet machining is widely popular in industries such as the automotive, aerospace, medical and glass to create precision parts from virtually any material. For higher quantity runs, this process is generally more accurate and less expensive than normal waterjet cutting. We have the latest water jet cutting technology which eliminates the common problems of stream lag and taper and allows us to cut faster and more accurately.

Our Water Jet Cutting Advantages:

  • Flow Dynamic Waterjet System makes cutting any shape out of metal, stone tile or composites a single step process.
  • Edge quality usually requires no secondary finishing - resulting in the most effective solution for cutting a wide range of materials from 1/16 inch to over 8 inches thick.
  • Savings on Raw Materials - abrasive waterjets cut with a narrow kerf and can produce netshape parts with no heat-affected zone, which allows for tight nesting
  • Travels are 6ft by 12ft
  • Cuts material up to 8” thick
  • Able to cut almost any material
  • Dynamic tilting head eliminates taper
    • Faster cutting times
    • Better corners

Our Water Jet Tolerances

Our water jet tolerance is primarily determined by the thickness of material, and speed of cutting. The water jet can cut thicker materials than our laser cutter, for example. A faster cut produces a looser tolerance with a less smooth edge, and is less expensive. A slower cut, while producing a tighter tolerance and a smoother cut, is more costly. Our objective at Precision Wire is to balance these cutting conditions to provide each customer with the best combination of price and tolerance for their specific needs.
