- Mild Steel: Up to 3/4 inch
- Aluminum: Up to 3/8 inch
- Stainless: Up to 5/16 inch
- Maximum sheet size: 5-foot x 10-foot
What is Laser Cutting?Laser cutting describes the process of using an industrial laser to precisely cut flat sheet metal, structural, and piping materials for a variety of final outputs. A computer, generally reading from CAD drawings, directs the laser to follow a pre-set path and cut materials leaving an edge with a high quality surface finish. Compared to traditional cutting methods, laser cutting delivers ultra-tight tolerances and eliminates the need for re-tooling.
The main advantages of laser cutting are the lack of physical contact (there is no cutting edge which can become contaminated), and the extreme precision allowed. There is also a reduced chance of warping the material as laser systems have a very small heat affected zone.
Water Jet Cutting Services
By its very nature, water jet cutting (A.K.A water-jetting) provides no affected heat zone to the material it is cutting. This makes water-jetting the perfect solution for cutting stone, ceramics, metals, and even plastics.
Water Jet Cutting Capabilities
- Work Area: 5' x 10'
- Materials: Most materials (metal, plastics, ceramics, stone, etc.) up to 7" thick steel.
- Accuracy: 0.003" (0.08mm)
- Extra: Our water-jet has the added on Tilt-A-Jet cutting head for taper compensation, leaving parts with a smooth, square edge
What is Water Jet Cutting?
Water Jet Cutting (A.K.A. waterjetting) describes the process of cutting materials with a high-pressure stream of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive. Waterjetting is used to cut a variety of materials including rubbers, plastics, metals, ceramics, and stone. Waterjetting is the preferred method for cutting materials sensitive to high temperatures generated by other cutting methods, such as machining.
