Custom Metal Cutting
What System is Best for Custom Metal Cutting?
At one time in history, custom metal cutting could only be done with tools that directly contacted the metal: bandsaws, high pressure dies, chisels, and similar equipment. Now, however, the capabilities of all of those have been surpassed by the high pressure water jet. The water jet can cut metal from pretty much any angle when it is coming from a 5-axis CNC machine, making it possible to use the CNC to produce 3D sculptures, intricate parts, and many other things. Since water is used, there is no need to worry about dull or brittle tools affecting the end results.
Because of these benefits and others, custom metal cutting in Mooresville, NC is now often done with water jet systems. Give it a try for your next job, and you'll see why the old methods have gone obsolete.
