We are now using Waterjet technology.

How does this benefit you?
It saves you time and money!

Our Flow Mach 3 & 4 Waterjet use a .04" stream of water compressed to 87,000 PSI to cut up to 6" thick material from mild to tool steel. It has an X/Y linear accuracy of +/- 0.0015" per 3’. The end result is a cutting machine that can produce parts of machine tolerance. Waterjet cutting provides you with greater accuracy and versatility with less material and production time.

  • Laser quality, but with the ability to cut substantially thicker materials
  • Accurate clean edge cutting allows for tighter nesting and less scrap
  • Dynamic cutting head virtually eliminates kerf
  • No heat affected zones, heat distortion or mechanical stress
  • Table capacity: 275" x 119"
  • Table can be modified to cut up to 8" thick material
