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.

Offering contract waterjet cutting services, Aerospace Alloys, Inc. is able to cut a variety of materials with ease. Whatever your business - automotive, aerospace, stone and tile, tool and die, gaskets, or fabrication - we can cut metal, stone, plastics, composites, glass, ceramics, rubber and more. Our equipment can cut through materials up to 9 inches thick with no heat-affected zone and superior edge quality.

Our waterjets require minimal fixturing and tooling so we can turn around your job quickly while reducing your tooling charges. We can cut accurate, clean edges that allow for tight nesting and reduced scrap - saving you money through greater material utilization.

A variety of cutting axes are available, and we provide water and abrasive material or water only cutting methods. Please contact Aerospace Alloys for more information.
