Abrasive cutting in Indiana and throughout the Midwest
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 a stream of 60,000 psi water and abrasive 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 Abrasive WaterJet cutting capability:
Cut almost any material
From metals like steel, aluminum and tungsten carbide; to glass, stone, tile and even plastics, rubber and vinyls.
Wide range of thicknesses cut
From as thin as 0.018 inch to 4 inches, and even thicker material cuts are possible.
Intricate shapes in delicate materials
Cutting composite items was a challenge, due to the thin sections.
Close tolerances, of plus or minus 5 thousandths of an inch (+/- 0.005"), are possible over the entire length of the part.
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.
We allow input during the quoting phase to ensure that the part is not over specified. By allowing the customer to select multiple tolerances, or edge finishes on the part in various areas.
