HOW WATERJET WORKS
At Thunderbird Water Jet, we use a mixture of high pressure water with garnet abrasive to cut virtually any material you could imagine. We can cut within +-.005” with 0 degree taper.
Materials that can be used:
|Rubber||Plastic||Stone||Tile||Other Ferrous and non-ferrous material|
Because water jets cut without heat, there is no heat-affected zones which occur with plasma or laser cutting, reducing the need for costly secondary operations to remove hardened edges.
The CAD software allows easy importation of your existing files, and due to very short set-up time, we can cut prototypes at very competitive pricing. With numerous different cut qualities available, we can cut rapid production as well as precision finish. Because we are able to nest the parts tightly, there is very little wasted material. With the increasing cost of raw material, this can save you money.
