Waterjet Cutting

In the world of custom fabrication, precision and versatility are paramount. When it comes to achieving intricate designs, sharp edges, and complex shapes, traditional cutting methods may fall short. This is where waterjet cutting steps in as a game-changer. Pro-Fab, a leading name in the custom fabrication industry, harnesses the power of waterjet cutting to provide you with unparalleled quality and precision in your projects. Waterjet cutting is a revolutionary technology that has redefined the possibilities in custom fabrication. Its precision, versatility, and eco-friendliness make it the ideal choice for a wide range of industries and materials.

What is Waterjet Cutting?

Waterjet cutting is an innovative technology that utilizes a high-pressure stream of water, often mixed with abrasive particles, to cut through various materials with exceptional precision. This process relies on the principles of erosion, where the force of the water stream erodes the material it contacts, enabling the creation of intricate cuts and shapes. The addition of abrasive particles enhances the cutting capabilities, allowing waterjet cutting to tackle even the toughest materials with ease.

Why Use Waterjet Cutting for Custom Fabrications?

  • Precision and Accuracy: Waterjet cutting is renowned for its accuracy, capable of achieving tight tolerances and intricate designs. This level of precision ensures that your custom fabrication projects are executed with impeccable detail.
  • Minimal Material Distortion: Unlike some heat-based cutting methods, waterjet cutting does not generate heat during the process. This means that there is minimal thermal distortion of the material being cut, preserving the integrity of the metal and reducing the need for secondary machining.
  • Versatility: Waterjet cutting is not limited to a specific type of metal. Whether you need stainless steel, aluminum, brass, or exotic alloys cut, waterjet cutting can handle them all. It is also versatile enough to cut materials like rubber, plastics, glass, and stone.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Waterjet cutting is an environmentally friendly option as it generates very little waste and does not produce hazardous fumes or dust. The process is known for its sustainability, making it a responsible choice for eco-conscious businesses.
  • Cost-Efficiency: While waterjet cutting is a highly advanced technology, it can often be cost-competitive with other cutting methods, especially when you factor in the reduced need for post-processing and material wastage.
