Metal and Wood has provided metal fabrication services in Vancouver since 1958. Our Core Services: Water Jet Cutting, Surface Finishes, Shearing & Forming
A water jet cutter is a fabrication tool that’s been used for decades and is one of the fastest growing machining processes today. Water jet cutters are capable of slicing into metal and almost any other material using a jet of water at high velocity and pressure. The cutter is connected to a high-pressure water pump where the water is then ejected from the nozzle, cutting through the material by spraying it with a jet of high-speed water. They may also use a mixture of water and an abrasive substance to increase cutting power. This is the same process as natural water erosion, except accelerated and concentrated.
We have a state of the art OMAX 80X Water Jet Machine. It is equipped with a A-Jet head and we offer 5 Axis cutting in all types of materials.
The water jet cutter is suitable for almost every industry because it is easy to use and has an ability to cut almost any material while maintaining high precision. Common materials cut with a water jet include textiles, rubber, foam, plastics, leather, composites, stone, tile, metals, food, paper and much more.
