Water jetting uses an extremely high-pressure stream of water to cut a variety of metals—but is particularly good on aluminum and copper metals.
This flexible cutting method allows our metal fabricators to use water only, or utilize a granular abrasive additive (almost like sand) for increased cutting power. Water jetting is often used in industrial fabrication to cut machine parts.
Thanks to 60,000 psi, AMF’s water jet machine can cut parts to engineer specs and even sand surfaces. Since water jets use high pressure rather than heat, application is ideal for heat-sensitive and pre-annealed materials, allowing metals to retain their inherent properties without heat damage. That means solid parts you can count on every time.
- Cuts a wide range of metals, including steel, aluminum, titanium as well as non-metal materials like granite, glass and plastic
- Can cut stacks of sheet metal up to 3 inches thick
- Capable of producing intricate cuts, corners, bevels, holes and shapes
- Attains accuracy down to 0.005 inch
- Reduces the amount of scrap material
