At ErtelAlsop we pride ourselves on staying up to date and keeping up with latest cutting edge technology. That being said, we are excited to introduce our new Flow – Dynamic Waterjet® technology! Our waterjet cutting services are located in the Kingston, NY, and we are happy to provide our services to the entire North East. Using cutting edge, Flow – Dynamic Waterjet technology, we give our customers quality machined parts and products with competitive pricing on all materials.
Waterjet cutting is an economical way to cut 2-D shapes with minimal material waste in order to keep your cost low. Additionally, complex shapes can be custom made to a high degree of accuracy. The unique Flow – Dynacmic Waterjet cutting process generates no heat, so the material edge is unaffected and there is no distortion which means superior edge quality. Additionally, waterjet cutting benefits from no burrs, and usually eliminates the need for secondary finishing processes. Our superior waterjet cutting can cut single or multi-layer materials from as thin as .001″ to as thick as several inches.
- Cut a wide range of materials in addition to metals, including stone, glass, and composites
- Cut materials up to 8″ thick
- Software controlled for absolute precision up to ±.003″
- Cut from standard CAD and vector files
- Contour Cutting of 3-D Objects
- Satin-smooth edges
- Cut stacks of materials for reduced part costs and consistency
Flow – Dynamic Waterjet Cutting
Our Flow – Dynamic Waterjet cuts metal or other materials with computer-controlled precision using high pressure water and abrasive. Dynamic Waterjet® features a tilting head that allows for even greater precision, greater consistency, faster cuts, less than 1 degree tapering, and contour cutting of objects. This precision makes the process ideal for applications where accuracy, consistency, and repeatability are critical.
The Dynamic Waterjet Cutting Advantage
Waterjet cutting offers a number of benefits over traditional machining, but Dynamic Waterjet Cutting takes the process a step further. Whereas regular waterjet cutting has a stationary cutting head, the Dynamic Waterjet cutting equipment at ErtelAlsop employs a tilting cutting head. Dynamic Waterjet cutting give you:
- 25–400% faster cutting
- Virtually no tapering, this means a true 90° cut
- No secondary finishing needed
- Stainless SteelCarbon Steel
- Ceramic Tile
- Armor Plate
- UHMW – Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene
