Advantages of water jet technology

Abrasive water jet cuts with micro-erosion, rather than shearing or heat, therefore producing cuts with exceptional edge quality without inducing heat-affected zone or mechanical stresses into the material. Raw material maintains there structural integrity and deburring and secondary operations are seldom needed.

- Materials, including reflective types such as brass and aluminum, of up to 100mm can be cut   effectively.

- No heat input eliminating any heat affected zones (HAZ) or distortion of material and micro   cracking.

- Heat sensitive materials such as plastics, rubber and composites can be cut.

- Brittle materials such as glass, tiles, bricks and stones can be cut.

- It is possible to cut small components with fine details.

- Superior cut quality without distortion is achieved compared to other processes.

- Holes with a diameter smaller than the material thickness can be produced.

- Secondary machining is possible directly on the cutting edge. Tapped holes are cut to drill size.

- Small kerf width and absence of heat allows for close arrangement of features on parts.

- CNC technology ensure that high level of accuracy (0.1mm) and repeatability can be   maintained.

Design Requirements

We can cut any 2D design in sheet material. The cutting process is computer numerically controlled to ensure a very high level of accuracy. We can work from your computer file, drawing or a sketch. However and electronic file in .dxf format is preferred of the part only, accompanied by a dimensioned drawing. Quantities and material specifications can be written on the dxf file or supplied in a spreadsheet format.
