From glass to granite, at Jamison Steel Rule Die we can precision cut almost any material with our two waterjet cutting machines:
Our abrasive waterjet system is new to our ever growing arsenal of manufacturing technology. Used primarily to cut ejection rubber for cutting dies, our waterjets can machine a wide variety of materials including composites, laminates, fiberglass, plastics, rubbers, aluminum, stainless steels, hardened or tool steel, exotic alloys, and heat sensitive materials without stress or distortion.
Waterjet cutting is the most environmentally safe way to precision cut material, and a great alternative for cutting synthetic material that may release harmful vapors when using other methods of cutting. The waterjet does this all without affecting the material properties or the temper, and saves tooling by jetting out shapes with no heat affected zone.
Additionally, waterjet cutting of pre-hardened materials will eliminate secondary machining, heat treating and stress relieving operations. This can help eliminate cleanup and secondary operations from laser, flame-cut or plasma cut parts by waterjet cutting parts to size.
