Water Jet Cutting Services
YARGER Precision Machining's precision water jet cutting services reduce or eliminate secondary operations while generating minimum part stress and smooth finished edges. Through nesting, we can reduce material cost. Water jet cutting does not create thermal distortion or hardening of components. Our capabilities include 2-axis cutting and we can handle parts that measure a maximum of 6" high, 98" long and 50" wide. Having 94,000 psi of water pressure, our machinery is capable of cutting metals such as steel, aluminum, and titanium, as well as non-metals such as plastics, composites, and rubber. Secondary services include drilling, painting, welding, assembly, and chemical film finishing (Mil-DTE-5541). We work to tolerances of ±.0015"/3' for accuracy and .003" for repeatability.
We can handle prototype to large production runs with typical lead times of 2-3 weeks. Rush services are also available. For more information on our water jet cutting services, please see the table below or feel free to contact us.
