Water Jet Cutting
Hi-Tech Machine & Fabrication's water jet cutting machine is an industrial tool capable of cutting a wide variety of materials using a very high-pressure jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance.
Our abrasive waterjet system can easily machine almost any material, from steel and titanium to carbon fiber, composites, glass, and more.
Waterjet cutting is used during the fabrication of machine parts & components. It is always the preferred method of cutting materitals when the materials being cut are sensitive to the high temperatures generated by other methods. Waterjet cutting is used in various industries, including defense and aerospace, for cutting, shaping, and reaming machine components.
An important benefit of our water jet is the ability to cut material without interfering with its inherent structure, as there is no heat-affected zone. This minimizes the effects of heat and allows metals to be cut without harming or changing intrinsic properties.
Our water jet cutter is also capable of producing intricate cuts in material. With specialized software and 3-D machining heads, complex shapes can be produced.
Our water jet allows uncut parts to be nested closely together, this can save you on productions costs by reducing the amount of scrap material produced.
