Waterjet Cutting

A water jet is a tool capable of cutting metal or other materials using a jet of water at high velocity and pressure, or a mixture of water and an abrasive media. The process is essentially the same as water erosion found in nature but accelerated and concentrated by orders of magnitude. Our Flow I-6012 Waterjet includes the following features:

  • 6.5’ x 12’ (2m x 3.6m) Work Bed
  • 94,000 psi Hyper Pressure Technology System
  • Dynamic Waterjet Precision Z-Axis
  • Improves cut part tolerances at significantly higher speeds
  • Eliminates taper to < 1 degree
  • Range of materials from 1/32” – 8” thick
  • Cuts 25-40% faster than conventional waterjets
  • True part stacking ability with consistent tolerance layer to layer
  • Cuts a variety of materials, such as metal, stone, glass & composites

Precision Fabrication

Our precision metal fabrication processes include those actions used to fashion metal into specific shapes or semi-finished pieces. Our most common techniques include bending, forming and rolling.
