Metal Service Center to Install Large Waterjet Cutter

Monday, April 6, 2015
Jacquet West, Carson, CA, a metal service center supplying stainless steel and nickel alloys, is installing a waterjet-cutting system from Jet Edge Inc. To be the second Jet Edge cutter at this location, the large-format mid-rail gantry system features a 12 by 21-ft. table, which enables Jacquet West to process 8 by 20-ft. or 10 by-20-ft. plates. Powered by a 60,000-psi 10-hp intensifier pump, the ball-screw driven waterjet system offers repeatability of +/- .001 in., and features dual independent cutting heads that can double production. The system also has submerged or above-water cutting capabilities as well as height-sensing capabilities to react to inconsistent plate height.
