Waterjet Cutting Services

At dti EXACT™, we provide waterjet cutting of most any material including, standard and exotic metals, plastics, and stone. Waterjet cutting is a very versatile cutting method, capable of creating intricate patterns with no heat distortion and a dimensional accuracy of ±0.010″ or better. By controlling the speed of the cut, a variety of edge finishes can be achieved from a coarse cut used to quickly cut blanks to a very fine surface finish that requires no additional grinding. Both standard waterjet cutting and abrasive waterjet cutting services are available. Abrasive waterjet cutting, or AWJ, is a more aggressive method of cutting wherein the garnet powder is introduced to the water stream. This allows us to cut thicker materials very efficiently. Our waterjet capacity can handle material up to 4’x8’ in area, with 12″ of Z travel.

We are the manufacturers of the highest quality diamond waterjet cutting orifices available. Using our own products we are able to provide the aerospace, medical, and other manufacturing industries with complex parts that require long cutting times. Using a diamond orifice ensures that expensive alloys will not be scrapped due to substandard orifices that cannot withstand extended cycle times. Most orders are processed and completed in approximately two weeks. For more information about our waterjet cutting services, see the table below, or contact us directly.
