Custom Waterjet Cutting Services

Our custom waterjet cutting services are a cut above the rest. We use high quality CNC machinery and programming software to create flawless designs out of raw material. By using cutting edge waterjet technology, we give our customers quality custom machined parts and products along with competitive pricing.

Waterjet Cutting Process

Fedtech, Inc. of Minnesota features high pressure waterjet cutting and machining with a fast turn around on parts. Our waterjet cutting services use water compressed up to 60,000 PSI as a powerful and precise cutting tool in manufacturing. The jet stream generated by waterjet cutting is capable of cutting material from .0005" thick up to 12 inches thick.

Waterjet Cutter (Waterjet Cutting Copper)

Waterjet cutting is an effective tool for the cutting of reflective materials and alloys including copper, brass, titanium, wood, acrylic and plastic.

Waterjet cutting benefits:

Waterjet Cutting Brass

  • Cutting tolerances as close as +/-.003"
  • Burr-free parts
  • Low contact force of the cutting stream
  • High positional accuracies of +/-.003"
  • No heat affected zones (HAZ)
  • Cutting of almost any material
  • Small kerf width to allow tight nesting and optimal material usage
  • No distortion or warping of materials

Since abrasive waterjet cutting utilizes a high velocity, coherent stream of water and abrasive, it can be used to custom cut most materials including:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Carbon Steel
  • Phenolic
  • Ceramic Tile
  • Acrylic
  • Titanium
  • Foams
  • Copper
  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Ceramics
  • Hastelloy
  • Armor Plate
  • Wood
  • Marble
  • Silicone
  • Kevlar
  • Plastics
  • Granite
  • Armor Plating
  • Rubber
  • UHMW
  • Glass
  • Laminates

Our Abrasive Waterjet Cutting Includes:

  • Shape cutting of .060" and thicker aluminum
  • Net size cutting of 1/2" and thicker stainless steel
  • Blank cutting of parts for final machining
  • Short runs of sheet metal parts
  • Screen cutting without burrs or warping
  • Converting plate stock to bars
  • Precision cuts in 1/2" and thicker mild steel
  • Intricate shapes in delicate materials
  • Custom shims in stainless steel and exotic materials
  • CAD engineering with quality precision
  • Processing of nearly every material

Want to learn more about Waterjet Cutting?

Abrasive waterjet cutting can pierce or drill holes as small as .030" in diameter (0.004" for waterjet cutting without abrasive). Fedtech's state-of-the art waterjet cutting capabilities are unmatched on our precision manufacturing and cost-effective production floor.

Although waterjet cutting is comparable to laser cutting and other conventional machining processes, waterjet cutting services are sometimes more affordable , in many cases secondary operations can be eliminated and material waste considerably reduced because of the ability to provide close nesting of parts.

We are proud of our combination of quality, price and service and we aim to keep our customers satisfied with each and every project completed.

We currently run eleven waterjet cutting systems equipped to handle all types of custom cutting applications with the ability to turn around your parts in a fast and efficient manner. Contact us to find out more and put our waterjet cutting experience to work for you!
