Water jet cutting is the process by which high pressure water is forced through a small nozzle producing an extremely clean and precise cut.
One advantage of waterjet cutting is the ability of parts to be tightly nested, thus maximizing yield potential. Waterjet cutting offers extremely accurate cuts for complex and intricate components, efficient use of materials and less compression distortion. Another advantage to water jet cutting is its reliable efficiency for producing prototype and test parts or short production runs.
CR Technology waterjet cutting capability is a fast, flexible and accurate process of cutting encompassing simple or complex parts in all phases of the production cycle.
Our 5-Axis Waterjet capability can provide precision cut designs in a wide variety of materials. Having the diversity of both abrasive and water only options allows for unlimited fabricating possibilities. Softer materials ranging from low durometer rubber or foam, to highly loaded metallic-filled products, along with rigid composite s are cut with ease. Having the abrasion cutting flexibility we can also cut steel up to 6” thick. Our WaterJet table has a 55″ x 55″ cutting surface and can hold even the tightest tolerance based on thickness and material.
