WaterJet Cutting

Precision machining workhorse: From prototypes to production runs.
The Model 5555 JetMachining Center cuts complex flat parts out of most materials including metal, plastic, glass, ceramic and composites directly from a CAD drawing or DXF file. JetMachining is ideal for short-run part production, just-in-time manufacturing, tooling and prototype part development. No tool changes or complex fixturing reduces setup times by at least 50%.

Abrasivejet Benefits

  • Machines a wide range of materials and thicknesses
  • Does not create heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses
  • Rapid setup, no tool changes required
  • Minimal fixturing required
  • Leaves behind a satin-smooth edge, reducing secondary operations
  • No noxious gases, liquids or oils used in (or caused by) the machining process
  • Completes most work below 80 dBA at 1 meter for submerged cutting
  • Environmentally “green” system with quiet and clean operation, low electrical and abrasive consumption
