Precise cutting is needed for this part ordered by a chemical coating application manufacturer. It calls for Lindsay Machine Works Water Jet Cutter which is able to do this task with ease. After the machinist inputs the information and positions the sheet steel, the water jet is ready. Ordinary tap water becomes a precise cutting medium when it is pressurized to 60,000 psi and then pumped through an orifice, mixing water and a garnet abrasive.
Slowly circling the sheet steel, first engraving the numbers, then cutting the shape, the water jet nozzle follows the path set up by the machinist using CNC technology. Once the water jet finishes, the machinist lifts the piece from the unused sheet steel.
