HIGH PRESSURE ABRASIVE WATERJET CUTTING

Water-jet technology uses an ultra-high pressure stream of water, forced through a tiny cutting nozzle, to cut through nearly any type of material. Ultra-high water (only) pressure can cut softer materials such as foam and paper. When an abrasive agent, such as crushed garnet is added to the ultra-high pressure stream, hard materials such as stone, marble, granite, steel and titanium can be cut with a perfectly smooth edge.

Virtually any shape or design can be cut with high-pressure water-jet technology. Whisper thin details, simple and larger block designs or holes bored through titanium all lend themselves easily to the computer-controlled abrasive water-jet cutting process. Finished edges are satin smooth with little or no need for further finishing.

Because the process uses cold water there is no heat distortion or mechanical stress on finished pieces.



PERFECT EDGE - MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY AT ITS GREENEST!

Water-jet cutting is one of the greenest technologies available today. Neither water nor the garnet used in abrasive cutting are toxic or hazardous in any way. Used water can be filtered and recycled or disposed down a drain. The small amount of garnet waste is likewise non-hazardous.

No noxious gases or liquids are used in, or are a by-product of water-jet cutting. Water-jets do not produce dust, fumes, smoke or other airborne contaminants.

Perhaps the most "green" aspect of abrasive water-jet cutting is the reduced substrate waste. Parts can be nested to minimize material waste and lower overall project costs. Additional parts finishing is typically not needed, eliminating secondary operations to achieve that PERFECT EDGE.



APPLICATIONS

Some applications for water-jet cutting by Perfect Edge include:

With the versatility of water-jet technology, the production and technical expertise of Perfect Edge, Inc, and the flexibility of three Perfect Edge machines, the demands and requirements of nearly any project can be addressed.





            

            


FULL CAD CAPABILITIES

Perfect Edge has full Computer-Aided Design services to complement the high-pressure water-jet cutting process. If the design to be cut requires CAD work, designers are on staff to meet the needs of the customer. Provide a picture and dimensional specs for a design, and leave the rest to Perfect Edge!



MACHINE CAPABILITIES AND TOLERANCES

Perfect Edge can readily handle materials up to 6 ft x 12 ft and weighing no more than 10,000 Lbs. Material can be up to 8" thick.

Taper in thicker materials is eliminated by using Perfect Edge's dynamic waterjet. Abrasive cut widths are generally 0.04" - 0.05" and smaller for non-abrasive cuts, which are 0.007"-0.013".
