For thick plate cutting we use a combination Waterjet / Precision Plasma cutting system. The waterjet provides tighter tolerances and allows for more intricate shape
cutting, while the plasma provides greater speeds for
less critical cuts.
The precision plasma cutter allows for a straighter
edge with less of a bevel than that produced on standard plasma cutters. The waterjet system produces clean
edge cuts and, since no heat is involved in the process, heat-effected zones are not a factor.
The waterjet can cut thicknesses up to 4" in steel and 5" in aluminum.
The plasma can cut thicknesses up to 2" in steel and 1.5" in aluminum.
The system can handle material up
to 6 ft. wide
by 12 ft. long.
