Fast Facts:

  • Waterjet Cutting has properties unlike other cutting methods:
    • NO HAZ (Heat Affected Zones) – this is very useful for cutting tool steel and other metals where heat could change the properties of the metal.
    • Safe – unlike grinding, waterjet cutting minimizes the dust or particles that could be harmful when inhaled.
    • Kerf width in waterjet cutting is very small and little material is wasted.
    • It minimizes the burr or rough edge and may eliminate secondary machining operations.

Aerospace Alloys, Inc. provides EDM cutting services for the military and aerospace sectors, and specializes in working with heat exchanger components. EDM (Electrical Discharge machining) is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained using electrical discharges. Material is removed from the work piece by a series of rapidly recurring current discharges between two electrodes, separated by a dielectric liquid and subject to an electric voltage. We offer both ram and wire EDM processes, and feature 3- and 5-axis CNC machining capabilities. To inquire about a project, please contact us directly.
