Our Flow waterjets are some of the best in the industry but it’s our operators that set MetPlas apart. We have over 25 years of waterjet cutting experience, providing low and production volume parts to a variety of industries. Waterjets offer the following advantages:
A couple of the biggest cost drivers in waterjet cutting are the tolerances and number of holes or cutouts. Tolerance drives cost because the tighter the tolerance ,the slower we have to cut. Each hole and cutout requires a piercing operation which takes additional time.
Precision Machining– Sometimes we first cut out the basic shape of the part on the waterjet to maximize sheet yield and then put it on one of our CNC mills to finish the part.
Subassembly– If your machined part is going into a larger assembly then it may be something we can assemble for you.
