Abrasive Water Jet Cutting

 

If you can’t compromise on part precision, water jet cutting is the way to go.  Only EDM wire cutting can deliver better dimensional accuracy, but it’s no match for the low cost and fast turnaround of CIM Metals Inc. service.

Our two machines, Omax and Flow, are constantly busy producing parts to tolerances of +/- 0.003” (0.076mm) on cutting beds of 120” x 60” (3.05m x 1.53m) size.

The thickness limit for any material is 7.0” (175mm), so count on this technology to handle your most demanding applications.

Using micro-particle garnet as the cutting abrasive, you’ll get a smooth edge finish in even the hardest materials.  CIM Metals Inc. has cut materials registering a hardness of BHN 400 for mining equipment, surpassing the required tolerances. 

This eliminated the need for secondary machining. If you need a draft angle on the edge of a thick plate component, water jet cutting accommodates it easily.

The only limitation to the use of this technology is in treating laminated materials – surface damage may be caused by high-pressure water invading the boundary between coating and substrate.
