Our Waterjet Machine

Reliability, and performance

At our shop we use Flow MACH-200 Water jet machine. Thanks to Flow Waterjet solution It cuts and eliminates heat-affected areas, recast layers and thermal stress entirely. To cut soft materials we use pure waterjet stream and to cut any hard material we add garnet abrasive.Our machines will cut aluminum to ½” thick, stainless steel to ¾” and carbon steel to 1”. Maximum sheet size is 60” x 120”

Advantages of Waterjet Cutting Compared to Laser Cutting

  • Cut Almost Any Type Of Material

Compared with other fabrication techniques, waterjets can handle just about any material or product that a traditional cutters can. In addition, materials like plastics, rubber, laminated materials, stone, glass, or materials with uneven surfaces can all be handled through waterjet cutting.

  • No Heat Affected Zone with Waterjet

Since Waterjet cutting does not generate extreme heat it does not change the properties of metal nor causing any thermal distortion. On the other hand this can occur with laser cutting.

  • Waterjets are Environmentally Friendly

Abrasive Waterjets will typically use garnet as the abrasive material.Garnet is non-reactive that is biologically inert. Waterjets also use much less water than may imagine thanks to its closed-looped system.

  • Better Tolerances on Thicker Parts

Waterjetting offers better tolerances on parts thicker than 0.5″. Both waterjets and lasers offer comparable tolerances for thinner materials.

  • Better Edge Finish

Waterjets cut with fine sanded-blasted surface finish, which makes it easier to make a high-quality weld for that part. Laser cut material appears to have a rougher, scaly edge which may require additional work and machining to clean up.

5-Axis Waterjet Cutting

Complex metal parts, especially if the design includes sharp angles and unusual shapes, can be very difficult to cut with extreme precision. Thanks to Pivot+ head, here at Medalco, we can deliver various cuts and finishes plus bevel cutting. With 5-axis head the accuracy of cuts and bevel cuts are so high. We specialize in high quality architectural and industrial cutting of any form of metal or industrial plastic, and can also handle other materials, such as concrete, steel, tile and stone.
