Local Waterjet Cutting

Hoosier WaterJet offers high quality custom cutting in Indiana and throughout the Midwest. Hoosier WaterJet was established as a division of High Performance Alloys, allowing the company to position itself as an industry leader and to leverage the latest cutting technology. Our Dynamic Waterjet® from Flow provides an alternative to traditional cutting techniques, particularly when materials are sensitive to high temperatures generated by these methods. Our waterjets use an output of 60,000 psi to cut almost any material - metal, stone, or composite - at up to 400% the speed of conventional flat stock waterjet cutting machines. Active Tolerance Control provided by Dynamic cutting head ensures unbeatable accuracy, speed and flexibility. Leveraging this dynamic technology, we can cut almost any material into any shape, leaving a smooth, near-perfect finish that meets aerospace standards.

Here are some facts about our Water Cut capability:

Capabilities

Mach 3 - 4020

  • Accuracy = +/- .0015" per 3 feet.*
  • Speed Range = 0 – 500 ipm
  • Cutting area: 2 meter x 4 meter cutting bed, with longer pieces capable with indexing functionality. (6' 6" x 13' bed for the rest of us).
  • Capable of tolerances to +/-0.005" on parts as large as a yard square.
  • Several tolerance ranges available for every need and budget:
    Separation cut +0.100" -0
    Rough cut +/- 0.031"
    Medium cut +/- 0.015"
    Fine cut +/- 0.005"
  • Superior edge quality and tighter tolerances than other more traditional cutting methods. Ability to mix and match edge styles on same part depending on how it will be used.
  • More economical because no scrap to deal with.  Less machining required on parts because of tighter tolerances and superior edge quality.
  • Dynamic cutting head allows better corner control and the least amount of taper.
  • No heat effected region and low edge stress - perfect for High Temp and Corrosion Material requirements.
  • Nesting and kitting available.
  • Flattening upon request.
  • JIT service offered.
  • Toll cutting available.

 

Applications

AEROSPACE

Titanium bodies | Engine components (aluminum, titanium, heat-resistant alloys)

AUTOMOTIVE

Interior trim (instrument panels, door panels) | Firewall, under-hood, etc | Grille Inserts | Truck bed liners

GASKETS

Automotive, marine, small engine, motorcycle, aircraft | Metal, copper, Teflon | Rubber, corkboard

METALS, EXOTIC & NONTRADITIONAL MATERIALS

Flat stock (aluminum, Stainless Steel, mild steel, titanium, brass, Inconel, tool steel, copper) | Ceramics (green state and final products) | Plastics (high and low density) | Plexiglas | Acrylics

STONE / GLASS / METAL ARTWORK

Flooring / tabletop / wall inlay | Metal artwork | Flat glass (not tempered) | Outdoor stone (pool decks, custom stepping stones, etc.) | Stained glass (crafts, church mosaics, lamp shades, etc.)

(Note: we do not carry all these materials listed - but we will cut them on a toll basis.)

 

Benefits

  • Cut parts 25-400% faster than conventional flat stock waterjet cutting machines
  • Improve cut part tolerances and geometry at significantly higher speeds
  • Virtually eliminate taper; taper is < 1 degree in straight-line geometry
  • Reduce part cost
  • True part stacking ability with consistent tolerance layer to layer
  • No secondary finishing required
  • Cut a variety of materials, such as metal, stone, glass, and composites
  • Cut parts using virtually any CAD file, or scan a drawing directly into FlowMaster®

Wide range of thicknesses cut

From as thin as 0.018 inch to 4 inches, and even thicker material cuts are possible.

Cutting table is 6.5 feet x 13 feet

Pieces can be cut from sheets or plates as large as the table. Larger format allows for nesting of parts to achieve the best yields possible.
