McKiney Manufacturing Custom Waterjet Machining
We are proud to offer custom waterjet machining, providing endless possibilities for your machining needs.
Waterjet, also known as water jet or abrasive jet cutting, is one of McKiney Manufacturing’s machining processes that directs a high-pressure jet of water and an abrasive substance to cut materials for industrial applications such as machine part manufacturing. Modern water jet cutters are controlled by CNC (Computer Numerical Control) systems running G-code to position the water jet nozzle and increase accuracy. Important benefits of water jet cutting with an abrasive substance include the ability to cut metals without increasing the material surface temperature and compromising the internal structure of the material (no Heat Affected one, or HAZ); the ability to cut sharp corners, holes, and complex shapes with small inner radii; fast turn-around rates; and minimal material waste thanks to the precise cutting and the narrowness of the nozzle.
