WaterJet Cutting & Machining

Specialty Metals Processing (SMP) recently expanded its processing capabilities by adding a new WaterJet Cutting and Machining Center. Our brand new OMAX 120X WaterJet is a 3-Axis Machine that can accurately cut in the X, Y and Z directions. With a large cutting envelope of 10’ x 20’ and the ability to cut material up to 6” thick, we can cut both large plates and sheets as well as small and lighter gauge parts and components.

3 Axis WaterJet Cutting

All materials that SMP processes – stainless steel, titanium, high nickel alloys, aluminum – are excellent candidates for waterjet cutting. Tight tolerances, quality edge condition and minimal burr are some of the advantages you get from waterjet cutting. Also, the fact that our waterjet cuts with high pressured water (60,000 P.S.I.) in combination with the abrasive material garnet, means that there is no thermal distortion or heat affected zones.

Providing a one stop shop for our customers that rely on us for slab, plate, sheet grinding and polishing translates into quicker turnaround times, lower freight costs and the consistent quality you have come to expect from SMP.
