> Video Case Study Highlights Benefits of Five-Axis Waterjet Cutting
Here’s a 2 min.-30-sec.-long videotaped interview with Lloyd Smith, president of Gulf Machine Shop, Inc., Lake Charles, LA, where we learn of the benefits the firm has received from its implementation of a five-axis waterjet-cutting system. Listen to Smith explain how its waterjet machine tackled a challenging job for a local paper mill that required cutting stainless-steel framework. Waterjet replaced plasma cutting, which required secondary edge finishing and created a troublesome heat-affected zone.

The high-quality video showcases a bevy of precision-cut components fabricated at Gulf Machine.
