Water jet cutting services are one of our most popular commercial and industrial cutting technologies because of its precision and ability to cut through nearly any material. It works by abrasion – ultra-high pressure water is shot through a diamond or ruby nozzle, pulling abrasives such as garnet sand or aluminum oxide into the stream by the vacuum it creates. This pressurized stream of highly-abrasive solution is then focused on the surface of the material to be cut, rapidly abrading through it. At Excell Solutions in North Billerica, MA, we offer the area’s most advanced and versatile water jet cutting with our brand new WaterJet OMAX 55100 system.
Water jet cutting services offer a number of benefits, including:
- Precision cutting: our 60,000 PSI water jet creates ultra-clean edges for better precision and aesthetics
- Environmentally friendly: Of all cutting processes, waterjet cutting is considered the most ecologically sound, using no toxic materials
- Cuts a variety of materials: water jet cutting’s extreme speed easily cuts through a wide range of materials, from ceramic and 1/32” thick rubber, to 6” thick steel
Our water jet cutting services are ideal for materials such as metals, plastics, and fibrous materials including glass-reinforced plastic and carbon fiber. Waterjet cutting offers clean edges with no delamination, resin melt, or fiber pullout. This often produces a higher quality part than other methods of cutting.
One of the advantages of our water jet cutting services is that it does not involve any heat in the cutting process so it does not create a heat affected zone on metals or add any extra stress to the material. This provides aesthetic, as well as functional, benefits for a part.
