WATER JET CUTTINGMinneapolis Water Jet Cutting Experts
Water jet cutting is a fantastic tool that allow us to cut any material. Benefits of water jet cutting are many. Cold cutting, smooth edges and high accuracy. At Blanda, the versatility of equipment and experience is what sets us apart.
Water Jet Cutting
When you need a quick turnaround, with a wide variety of materials, our water jet cutting service is ideal. We can cut virtually any material, including metals, composites, stone, plastics, glass and rubber. Characteristics of water jet cutting include superior edge quality, and no heat effects on your finished part.
Water Jet Cutting
Because the water jet cutting process is controlled by CNC it is both highly accurate, and repeatable. Also, since no expensive tooling is required, water jet cutting is often ideal for either prototyping, or smaller runs of parts. We can cut a diverse range of materials with water jet cutting, both metallic, and non-metallic.
Water Jet Cutting Benefits:
• No tooling required
• No burrs. No secondary finishing needed
• Extremely accurate
• No heat affected zone (HAZ) – Minimized effects of heat on the intrinsic properties
• Ideal for prototyping
• Can cut virtually any material
Water Jet Cutting Applications:
• Aerospace (titanium bodies, components, aluminum parts)
• Electronics (circuit boards)
• Heat sensitive, or delicate materials
• Metal stamping / tool & die
• Architectural – signs/decorative applications
• Parts prototyping
