Metal cutting

Atom Fabs can also offer in house waterjet cutting from our profiling team.

The machine is a Bystronic Byjet smart 3015 with twin heads. Waterjet cutting has the flexibility to cut 0.01 millimetere-thin plastic films to 200 millimetere-thick titanium whilst maintaining superb accuracy and edge parallelism this flexibility is also reflected in the range of materials that can be cut a few of which are: 

 

Titanium       Plastic       Stainless steel       Wood       Hardox        Rubber        Brass       Carbon Fibre         Copper         Composites         Granite         Marble        Glass        Mild Steel       Nylon

Waterjet vs Laser

The choice of whether to use waterjet or laser for your next cutting job depends entirely on what your specifications are. This is because fixed tooling and fixturing are generally not required in either cutting process and set up costs are minimal for both the questions you should be asking are what type of material do you want to use? What is the thickness? What sort of tolerance and edge finish are required for the job you’re doing? Will your part be effected by heat? The comparison below shows the edge finish on two alike mild steel blocks, one laser cut and the other waterjet cut.
