Abrasive Water Jet Cutting

As one of the first companies to offer water jet cutting and machining services in Queensland we offer decades of experience in high pressure water cutting.

Water jet cutting requires specialised equipment that is capable of meeting strict tolerances as defined by the material and design requirements.

Our abrasive water jet cutting machines are fast, precise and can cut hard or soft materials of any volume.

Custom Precision Water Jet Cutting Applications

Water Jet Cutter 1

Water-Only Jet Cutting

Water-only jet cutting is perfect for softer materials like insulation foam, sponges, cork, rubber, compressed non-asbestos fibre (CNAF), EMI/RFI shielding and felt. Our industrial machinery is capable of guided cutting to a standard tolerance on water jet cut parts of +/- 0.2 mm.

Water Jet Cutter 2

Garnet Water Jet Cutting

Our garnet waterjet cutter is designed for harder, more difficult materials such as laminated shims, stone, metals, engineering plastics, and Armour Plate. For metals we can cut 2850mm x 1450mm x 110mm and 80mm deep.

Specialised Water Jet Cutting Applications

The water jet cutting process lends itself to multiple applications due to its ability to cut small or large slots and holes in a variety of thicknesses and grades of material. Unlike heat-based methods like laser or flame cutting, this process reduces machining time and leaves no heat-affected areas.

The precision cutting stream is formed by ultra high pressurised water producing accurate, distortion free results with smooth, clean-edged finishes. Individual requirements can be programmed into the machines, enabling both best quality and price.
