WaterJet Cutting

Waterjet cutting at Grain Belt is used when parts demand exceptional edge quality. A wide variety of materials can be cut ranging from 1 / 64" thin all the way up to 8" thick. Parts can be cut from metals, composites, glass, stone, rubber and plastics. Any shape can be cut in a single step.

  • Edge quality that doesn't require secondary finishing
  • Will cut a wide range of materials from 1 / 64" to over 8" thick
  • Cuts metals, composites, glass, stone, rubber and plastics
  • Five-axis head cuts much tighter tolerance at higher speeds

Cut Quality

All Water Jet produced parts may have standard ribbing edge quality. Customer will need to request what edge quality desired at the time of quote. Smoother edge quality is relevant to the speed of the machine and part cost. Smoother edge does require slower speeds which results in more machine time.
