Powerful Precision
For Your Project

Waterjet cutting machines are highly versatile, allowing for accurate and precise cutting of almost any material. They are able to cut through most metals (including stainless steel), plastics, composites, glass, rubber, cork and foam. Additionally, the machines can easily handle complex shapes with tight tolerances as well as producing intricate patterns or designs. Cutting speeds vary depending on the thickness and type of material being cut, but are typically much faster than other methods such as laser or plasma cutting. Waterjet machines are also capable of cutting without heat and do not introduce stresses or warping into the materials being cut. This makes them ideal for cutting parts that require tight tolerances or where a clean finished edge is desired. Finally, they can be used in many industries including automotive, aerospace, medical and more. Therefore, waterjet cutting machines are a great way to quickly and accurately cut parts with minimal distortion or damage.

Waterjet cutting machines require specialized operators who must be fully trained in order to ensure proper operation. This includes the safe handling of all materials and tools used as well as understanding basic machine functions such as pressure settings and flow rates. Operators must also be able to read blueprints or CAD drawings in order to properly align the materials being cut and ensure accuracy of the finished parts. Additionally, operators must regularly maintain and inspect the machines to ensure proper operation and longevity of the equipment. In summary, waterjet cutting machines are a great option for precisely cutting a wide variety of materials but require experienced and knowledgeable operators to ensure optimal performance.

Waterjet cutting machines can offer many advantages over other types of cutting machines including improved speed, accuracy and precision, the ability to cut complex shapes with tight tolerances, no heat or warping of materials, and increased production efficiency. Additionally, they are an ideal choice for cutting parts that require a clean finished edge or intricate patterns.

Benefits of Waterjet Cutting

Although waterjet cutting is similar to laser cutting in some applications, waterjet cutting services result in low-contact, no-heat cutting that produces burr-free parts, can be more affordable, eliminates some secondary operations, and reduces material waste because of the ability to provide close nesting of cut parts.

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


Our machine shop 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 0.005" up to 12" thick. Waterjet cutting is an effective tool for the cutting of reflective materials and alloys including copper, brass, titanium, wood, acrylic and plastic.

Waterjet Cutting Industries

We serve numerous industries with our custom manufacturing services. We have waterjet cut art, sculptures, architecture work, as well as thick armor plating and ballistic material for the defense, aerospace, aircraft industries, and custom gaskets. From small to large, prototype manufacturing to production, FedTech has you covered.

Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

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

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.
