Water jet cutting combines a high-pressure stream of water with garnet abrasive to cut through harder materials like metal and glass with speed and precision. Whether you need to cut steel, ballistic glass or composites, our 3-axis abrasive water jet can get the job done.
Three-axis water jet cutting from Rayco is fast, accurate and cost-effective for prototypes and quick turn service. Our gantry-style cutting equipment can handle larger parts used by the power generation industry and smaller metal parts for quality-driven industries like aerospace, defense and medical manufacturing. From 6-inch thick steel to 1/8-inch glass, our 3-axis waterjet combines easy loading for virtually unlimited part sizes with the latest combination of technology and process speeds.
With our 3-axis abrasive water jet cutter, three degrees of freedom (DOF) support movement across the X, Y, and Z axes. This precision cutting service can be used alone or in conjunction with our other metal fabrication processes to optimize the production process. For example, save time and money by removing a majority of workpiece material with the abrasive water jet cutter prior to CNC machining.
