Applications of Water Jet Cutting


The application for Water Jet Cutting in Long Beach, CA are as wide as the materials being used. Having the capacity and flexibility to cut through a high number of materials provides this method of cutting distinct advantages. The main advantage is related to HAZ or reducing the Heat Affected Zone. The area where traditional cutters produce a high degree of heat and as a result can and at times do damage the material being cut. Additional to that, this method of cutting provide a significant degree of accuracy while allow for very large scale cuts. The accuracy is measured down to 0.13mm while repeat-ability is measured down to 0.025mm. Finally the material left over as a result of the cut, also known as kerf get significantly reduced as a result of using Water Jet Cutting in Long Beach.

Making use of a 3D modeling program gives an additional level of accuracy and control with the ability to make intricate cuts while working on large blocks of material.

History of Water Jet Cutting


The history of using water to cut goes further back then most recorded history. While modern variations of using water to cut date back to the gold mine era of the late 1800's in California. Where it was used exclusively to clean mined dirt and as one might expect find gold. This was done using heated water and steam. More recent applications have started using very high pressure pumps with jeweled tips to focus the water as needed. This is the same sort of Water Jet cutting in Long Beach, CA that Phillips Steel uses. The jeweled tip focuses the water into a consistent and coherent stream that then can be focused to cut.

More recent advances in computer technology and engineering have created 5 axis cutters. While Phillips Steel does not as of yet employ these types of cutters, it does use state of the art equipment. All of which is computer controlled and man operated allowing for a full degree of flexibility when doing Water Jet Cutting in Long Beach CA. We also have the tools and resources necessary to take on any size project. This has allowed us the ability to work with any of a high number of industries. Having also a substantial amount of experience has also allowed us to provide a high quality service.

Using a pressure of roughly 20,000 and 55,000 pounds per square inch, a water jet cutting in long beach ca process can cut through any metal. The applications are not limited to hard materials such as metals and stone. It can be used as well for cutting through wood and has been used for removing bark along with cutting more intricate designs. Using ultra high pressure or (UHP) allows our water jets to perform under all applications.
