Water Jet Cutting is a modern process & has involved GP Products in major investment in modern CNC machines. The Process utilises water & abrasives which are mixed to create a fine beam of fluid that will cut through almost any material. The water is compressed to 4000 bar, (60,000 psi) and then forced through a directional nozzle which is controlled by a CAD/CAM system. This allows complex nesting of components on our cutting path saving valuable material.
Abrasives can be added to ensure that the cut is swift and smooth, with minimal edge burring and no material distortion when cutting hard materials. We can use this process to cut any material from paper, rubber, foam through to stainless steel, aluminium, wood, marble & ceramics.
The key benefits of this process include no tooling, no material distortion or discolouration, no product burring, accuracy to within +/- 0.1mm and suitability to both small & long runs.
We can use water jet cutting with polished surfaces and for materials up to 100mm thick. Tight radii cuts can be achieved accurately & reliably and cost savings result through complex nesting of the same or different components. Water Jet Cutting is ideal for:
- Bespoke Metal Gasket Manufacture
- Carbon Fibre Components
- Complicated 2D & 3D Shapes
- Detailed Wooden Items
- Fabric Cutting
- Leather Washers
- Machining Plastics
- Polished Metal Components
