Shaping 3D Parts Water Jet cutting

Cutting 3D parts in different work planes

High Tech Industries need to make 3D parts in hardened metals, special alloys and composite materials with accurate, high precision cuts. Water jet cutting technology is often preferred since it eliminates stress in the material and leave the edges without heat effected zones. For decades Water Jet Sweden has been manufacturing high precision abrasive water jet cutting systems to leading aerospace, defense and power industries around the world.

Advantages for Defence, Space, Aerospace and Power Industries

Large-scale 5-axis processing allows the advantages of the water jet process to be utilised in the finishing of fabricated structures, pressed parts, molded composite parts and other 3-D parts. With Z-Axis capacities up to 1000 mm and a generous working area, the waterjet technology has been embraced largely by the Defence, Space, Aerospace and Power Industries. Designed materials such as hardened steel, titanium, kevlar and carbon fibre can easily be cut to precise form. Applications include trimming of molded parts into their final shape.
