Water Jet Cutting at IGS Industries
Our state-of-the-art water jets can cut nearly any material in the most complex of designs. The cuts made by our equipment are tremendously definite (oftentimes to a .005” tolerance–just slightly larger than a human hair) and complete with a satin finish (no burrs or burns). Our 87,000 psi water jets cut metallic and nonmetallic parts several inches thick with a pristine edge finish. For projects that include cutting, shaping, or reaming, our water jet capabilities deliver quick, reliable results every time.
Why Water Jet Cutting?
Water jet cutting is the perfect solution when you need to precisely cut virtually any material without the threat of heat and mechanical stress. Water jet cutting uses either water or a mixture of water and abrasive materials in a high-pressure capacity to make exact cuts to a material, all done without involving considerations of temperature. Due to its relatively small kerf, water jet cutting also allows us to utilize more of the material compared to traditional cutting methods–which means less waste and, thus, lower material costs. Water jet cutting also reduces or eliminates the need for secondary manufacturing operations and finishing, yielding a faster turnaround for your deadlines.
Why IGS Industries?
IGS Industries has been producing materials via water jet cutting for leading companies across a spectrum of industries for over ten years. This experience, when combined with our exemplary training programs and state-of-the-art equipment, allows us to provide you parts designed and cut to your specifications. With water jet cutting, we can nest parts which allows us to maximize yield.
