Colorado WaterJet Company (CWJ; Berthoud, CO), a leader in abrasive waterjet shape cutting in the state, announces the addition of new state-of-the-art 5-axis waterjet technology to its precision machining and fabrication services.

The latest machine is a Mach 4C waterjet from Flow International Corporation (Kent, WA) that features the most advanced technology in the industry while providing the most accurate bevel and 3D cutting capabilities available.

 

 

This machine, combined with our highly-trained and experienced staff, gives us the most advanced material-shaping capabilities in Colorado,” says CWJ president Dan Nibbelink.

The machine is capable of shaping virtually any composite material, regardless of thickness, including steel (mild, stainless, tool, high alloy, hardened), aluminum, titanium, brass, copper, bronze, Inconel, Hastelloy®, tungsten, Invar, and stone.

Overall, waterjet technology is more advanced and cost effective than comparative cutting technologies like band saws and lasers. The cold cutting process requires no heat and eliminates hardened edges, slag and warping. It allows for close nesting of parts for efficient use of material that reduces waste.

The computerized, numerically controlled system significantly improves turnaround time and eliminates cutting and processing errors associated with non-waterjet systems.

This technology is versatile, and opens up many possibilities to our clients in various industries because we can offer highly precise machining of almost any material in any shape or size,” adds Nibbelink.
