From metal service centers in the U.S to industrial plant contractors in Turkey, fabricators everywhere are discovering how 5-axis waterjet cutting capabilities can be used to grow their business in heavy industrial applications.
The move to higher pressure has improved the productivity of waterjet cutting systems, but the increase in jet velocity is actually the driving force behind these dramatic gains in efficiency.
Abrasive waterjet micro machining technology created 23 of the parts used in the fingers, hand, wrist, arm and shoulder of the first Modular Prosthetic Limbs worn and controlled by a bilateral shoulder-level amputee.
Precision Waterjet Concepts uses waterjet cutting systems from Jet Edge to cut virtually any material, especially AR Plating and titanium.
The in-house system developed by OMAX helps eliminate bottlenecks, provides active real-time measurable data, makes it possible to quickly adjust to fluctuating production schedules, streamlines processes and shortens manufacturing lead times to get machines on customers’ shop floors faster.
They achieve record results in all areas of community engagement, environmental impact, and associate well-being.
The waterjet manufacturer employs over 90 local residents and provides repeat business for many local businesses and hardworking business owners.
Their 2017 Spark Something Great Educational Grant gets the latest plasma technology into schools to train the next generation of metalworkers.
Ideal for hole-drillers and shops that micro-machine metals, ceramics and composite materials with high precision in aerospace, industrial gas turbines, defense, medical, automotive, hard material tool making and general metal micro-machining, the Synova MCS 500 5-axis water-guided laser cutting system from Single Source Technologies greatly improves production yields by cutting and drilling perfectly parallel and clean kerfs or holes with virtually no heat impact.
The MicroMAX Gen 2 abrasive waterjet system from OMAX has a Tilt-A-Jet cutting head to achieve virtually zero taper and is capable of a positioning accuracy of less than five microns.
Available with dual heads to double productivity, the 90,000 psi PRO-III 125 hp pump from KMT Waterjet runs a .016 orifice that can reduce cutting time in half.
