2D & 3D Flow Waterjet


Water jet cutting has grown rapidly in popularity in the past decade, and it is one of the best options for precision cutting nearly any material. Our 3D Flow Water jets do not generate heat-effected zones on cut parts, have an extremely narrow kerf, and will cut up to 10" thick. They also have 5-axis heads, giving us the ability to tilt the cutting head up to 60 degrees and cut 3D shapes.

With the ability to hold extremely tight tolerances, Alcobra can provide near-machine finish parts. If precision is not an option, the water jet is a great choice to rough out a part at a faster cutting speed by a few thousandths, giving our customers extra savings but still saving a ton of production time.

Here are some other details on our water jets:

2D Cutting Area: 6.56 ft. x 13.12 ft.

3D Cutting Area: 6 ft. x 12 ft.

Thickness of Material: 10+ inches. (Special considerations must be taken into account when exceeding 10 inches.)

Kerf Width: .040, .030, .020, .005 are our basic configurations depending on each cut. Others available.

Speed of Traverse: 1400 inches / minute.

Speed of Cut: Depends on the material and thichness.

Edge Quality: Smooth to Cutoff, depending on material, thickness and desired edge.
