WARDJet Builds Huge Waterjet/Mill
The manufacturer of waterjet and CNC platforms is partnering with The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing to create one of the largest combination waterjet and CNC milling platforms in the world for use in ongoing research.
WARDJet Inc. (Tallmadge, OH), an innovative designer and manufacturer of waterjet and CNC platforms, is expanding its reach beyond the region and even the country by partnering with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing in Sheffield, UK to create one of the largest combination waterjet and CNC milling platforms in the world for use in ongoing research.
To handle the intensive needs of the AMRC with Boeing, the GCM Series is a combination 5-axis waterjet and 24,000 rpm 5-axis mill designed and manufactured in northern Ohio. To introduce the GCM, WARDJet and the AMRC with Boeing hosted an Open House event in Sheffield at the AMRC with Boeing campus on January 30-31 that allowed visitors to see the GCM in action, as well as tour the AMRC facility and its capabilities.
WARDJet was selected over other manufacturers for its drive and ability to innovate and push the boundaries of what is currently possible. The company is looking forward to working with the AMRC with Boeing to improve on current technology to help drive manufacturing in multiple industries, including aerospace, automotive and composites. www.wardjet.com
