Waterjet Cutting

Finished To Precision

Nifty Bar offers abrasive Waterjet cutting services for production of precision blanks, near net shape parts, and completely finished components from prototypes to final production parts. Our abrasive Waterjet cutting equipment provides a 72″ x 144″ cutting envelope and can achieve tolerances of up to ± 0.005″ with minimal taper. Abrasive Waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure stream of water and garnet particles to cut through materials without heat. This technology offers many benefits compared to alternative cutting technologies or conventional machining, including:

  • Capability to make one or thousands of parts as needed
  • Reduced material costs through narrow kerfs and part nesting
  • No thermal distortion or hardening
  • Minimal part stress
  • Elimination of tooling and fixtures
  • Smooth finished edges
  • Ability to cut hardened materials
  • Ability to cut highly reflective materials
  • Reduction or elimination of secondary operations
  • Environmentally-friendly process
  • Capability to self-pierce start holes
  • No heat distortion or discoloration
  • Accurate and repeatable reproduction of fine details
  • Allows processing of brittle materials without chipping
