Aqua Jet, LLC Cutting Services specializes in providing quality
part production at competitive rates. The versatility of our state of the art water jet cutting machines is
apparent in the wide variety of materials in which they can cut. Water jets can cut virtually all materials due to
the lack of heat-affected zones during the machining process. They also eliminate the need for secondary finishing
operations because they cause no heat or mechanical stress deformation to the part.
Our commitment to quality and service is backed by our extensive knowledge of the water jet cutting process. We
have experience working with clients in many industries including metal fabrication, architectural, aerospace,
medical, government, sign and display.

Water Jet Cutting Technology and Advantages
||Water jet cutting machines force a high velocity water stream containing abrasives
through a jeweled orifice. This action leads to an extremely high pressure (60,000 psi) fine jet of
water which can cut virtually any material. This combination of water pressure, abrasives, and high
velocity erode the workpiece creating the cut.
Water jet cutting maintains tolerances that are comparable to laser cutting. It is faster than
EDM machining (electrical discharge machining) with lower capital and operating costs. Among its
many benefits, water jet cutting is environmentally advantageous.
• Low cost
• No hazardous gases or liquids provide a safe working environment
• No heat affected zone nearly eliminates the need for secondary finishing operations
• Narrow kerf
• High precision allows for intricate cuts
• Quantities range from a single piece to high production
• No tooling changes
• Fast set-up
