Waterjet Cutting Overview
Florida Waterjet cutting technology is a great alternative to laser cutting, plasma cutting, milling and conventional machining. Waterjet cutting technology is the fastest growing major machine tool process in the world. The flexible process either replaces or compliments other technologies such as milling, laser, EDM, plasma and routers. No noxious gases or liquids are used in waterjet cutting, and waterjets do not create hazardous materials or vapours. No heat effected zones or mechanical stresses are left on a waterjet cut surface. It is a truly versatile, productive, cold cutting process. We can work from your existing CAD, .DXF or .STP files for three axis and five axis applications. We can also create them to meet your specific needs. We are the best at florida in waterjet cutting services.
With either of our Flow waterjets we can cut up to 6" of thickness with pressures up to 87,000 psi and produces taperless parts with high accuracy without using heat. With the Dynamic XD Cutting head we can bevel up to 60 Degrees and even cut compound contours. Waterjet applications justify themselves based on high part quality and the elimination of secondary operations. When all costs are factored in, abrasive waterjet cutting is the most economical solution for many different applications. Almost any material, hard or soft, can be cut by waterjet: Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper, Steel, Nylatron, Polycarbonate, Polystyrene, Brass, Starboard, Titanium, ABS, PVC, Bronze, Rubber, Foam, Marble, Laminates, Gasket material, Granite. Ceramics, and sheet metal fabrication etc. At PT Engineered Products we recycle all of our water in order to be environmentally friendly, none of the spent abrasive, pulverized kerf material ever goes down the drain. In all, this is what makes us, Central Florida's best at Waterjet Cutting Services!

Exotic Materials: Many exotic metals today are cut with waterjet for a smooth finish. This ranges from mild steel and aluminum to sturdier materials like titanium. Stronger products like nickel alloys can be used to create engines which are able to withstand extreme temperatures. One of the biggest advantages of using a waterjet for substances Read more about Exotic Materials[…]
Thick Insulation: Thick insulation can pose some problems for those who try to cut it. To combat this, waterjet slashes through the toughest material. There is some insulation that incorporates fiberglass within the product. This can be found in automotive, the walls of buildings, attics, or in the HVAC. Waterjet eliminates the struggle by using Read more about Thick Insulation[…]
Cement Board: Cement board typically finds a use in building product such as underlayment for floors, substrate for wall tile, or for building siding. It is a moisture resilient, flexible, strong material perfect for construction. A saw is often brought to a job site to cut away at a cement board. In a factory, waterjets Read more about Cement Board[…]
Stone: An abrasive waterjet is often used for stone kitchen and bathroom countertops, boarders around rooms, hotel lobbies, or other embellishments within a structure. This is meant to beautify architectureand leave an impression on those who view it. The handiwork done can be accomplished through waterjets to create designs such as vines, leaves, or flowers. Read more about Stone[…]
Composites: Composites are chosen by transportation and sporting industries mainly for its strength to weight ratio. It’s stronger than metal and lighter in weight, makingit a desirable material to work with. This highly-engineered material is composed of cloth fibers and a form of resin epoxy. Although durable, there is a risk that it will be Read more about Composites[…]
Waterjet displays exquisite detail on numerous materials – from aluminum, steel, foam, and gasket. However, this is far from the powerful capabilities that waterjet shows. Waterjet utilizes its craftsmanship for stronger materials such as composites, stone, cement board, thick insulation, and exotic materials like titanium.
