The unique abrasive cutting system helps the plant decrease its scrap rates and deburring while producing precision parts with tolerances of ±0.01 mm, depending on material and thickness.
Incodema (Ithaca, NY) is a prototype and short run sheet metal stamping provider. They produce high quality prototype sheet metal stampings, intricate metal forming, short run production stamping, laser cutting, photo chemical machining (PCM), CNC machining and wire EDM, and now . . . micro waterjet cutting. The manufacturer also provides outstanding mechanical engineering and design services, specializing in precision metal stampings and injection molded plastic components.
Micro Waterjet LLC (Huntersville, NC) recently sold a microwaterjet® F3 system to the New York plant. “This system will enable this manufacturer to achieve a higher degree of precision in prototyping and production runs,” stated Walter Siegenthaler, the executive vice president of Micro Waterjet. “Incodema is known for their high quality and fast turn-around, and the addition of this new cutting system to their operations provides additional precision capabilities that enable them to achieve exacting precision.”
“We are extremely pleased and excited to be the first U.S company to install this type of system,” stated Sean Whittaker, the president of Incodema. “The precision of this system makes it an excellent addition to our arsenal of equipment.” The microwaterjet® performs precision waterjet cutting down to ±0.0005 in and provides excellent surface quality without the negative effects associated with process forces and thermal stress. This unique system will enable the plant to decrease its scrap rates and deburring while producing precision parts to tolerances of ±0.01 mm, depending on material and thickness.
Micro Waterjet was formed through a joint venture between Waterjet AG and Max Daetwyler Corporation to bring micro manufacturing services for advanced abrasive waterjet technologies to North America. We serve a broad range of markets including aerospace, automotive, electrical/electronic, machine shops, jewelry, medical, motorsports, research labs, and many other specialty applications. www.microwaterjet.com
