Water Jet Cutting

Abrasive Water Jet Cutting Specialists

Double R Mfg. offers CNC waterjet cutting which is a process that produces shapes by cutting sheet material using a high pressure stream of water containing abrasive particles. CNC waterjet cutting is an economical way to cut 2D shapes in a very wide range of materials with no tooling costs. The unique process of CNC waterjet cutting provides reasonably good edge quality, no burrs and usually eliminates the need for secondary finishing processes. The process also generates no heat so the material edge is unaffected and there is no distortion. CNC waterjet cutting can cut single or multi-layer materials from as thin as .001″ to as thick as several inches. The process yields no poisonous gas when cutting plastics or rubber. Shapes possible with CNC waterjet cutting include 2D shapes with cutouts and almost any complexity.

Materials applicable to waterjet cutting range from extremely hard very soft. Without heat to warp metals, burn composites,  or melt soft plastics, waterjet cutting can benefit almost any material, including:

  • Aluminum
  • Stainless Steel
  • Copper
  • Granite
  • Nylon
  • Mild Steel
  • Marble
  • Ceramic Tile
  • Glass
  • Polycarbonate
  • Polystyrene
  • Fiberglass
  • Brass
  • Carbon fiber
  • etc.

The waterjet has shown that it can do things that other technologies simply cannot. From cutting whisper thin details in stone, glass and metals; to rapid hole drilling of titanium; to cutting of food, to the killing of pathogens in beverages and dips, the waterjet has proven itself unique.
