High Pressure Water Jet Cutting For The Aerospace Industry

High pressure water jet cutting systems are the ideal solution for the aerospace industry. These systems can machine any known material including:

  • Composites
  • Laminates
  • Plastics
  • Rubbers
  • Castings
  • Forging
  • Aluminum
  • Stainless steel
  • Hardened or tool steel
  • Exotic alloys
  • Heat sensitive materials
  • Synthetics that may release harmful vapors when cut using other methods

Water jet cutting is so versatile there’s no doubt that the process will be suitable for use on any future materials that technology could require and produce.

Most impressively, the water jet machines do this all without affecting the material properties or the temper. This absence of heat in ultra-high pressure UHP waterjet machining is perfect for aerospace applications. Water jet cutting of aluminum and hard materials like alumina ceramic is also possible.

Cutting Edge has successfully processed materials approaching 9.9 MOHS in hardness. Specialized aerospace materials like titanium, magnesium, composites, laminates, and aluminum are common for aerospace water jet cutting.
