Waterjet or Laser cutting, which is the best for your project?
Also want types of business can use these services.
Manufacturing and Fabrication shops: We can Laser cut thinner gauge materials with speed and accuracy. Time-Save (graining) parts also offered.
Artistic Designers: If you can imagine it, we can cut it! We can custom cut virtually any material in any shape. Metal art is no problem for our Laser or Waterjet. We can cut virtually any artistic design, from any material.
Metal Stamping: Eliminate tooling costs on short run parts by having them Laser or Waterjet cut.
Plasma Cutting: Have a part that is too thick for plasma or laser cutting? We can waterjet that part and there will be no heat affected zones and little or no secondary clean up
Architectural Contractors: We can custom cut your designs with our Laser or Waterjet. Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum and Painted Metal Materials are also no problem. Our large bed waterjet and laser can handle just about any job.
Glass Fabrication: We can cut mirror and glass into almost any shape imagined.
Auto and Motorcycle: We can Precision laser or waterjet cut your parts. Contact us for a quote!

Waterjets can cut thicker materials, up to 6″ thick and more.Low cost waterjet cutting in progress.
Lasers can usually cut thinner materials much faster and more cost effective.
Waterjets can cut virtually any material.
Lasers are more limited in what materials can or should be cut.
Waterjets are cut with very little Heat Affected Zone (HAZ).
Lasers heat material during the cutting process.
Waterjets can usually cut short run of parts at a lower cost. There is usually less setup time.
Lasers are better suited for long run of parts.
Waterjet tolerances can be programmed in a wide range, and a wide range of cut surface conditions.
Laser tolerances are about +/- .003, or better.
Waterjets can cut different material types with virtually no machine tooling changes.
Depending on material and job changes, setup time may vary between material and job changes.
Waterjets introduce water on the material surface.
Laser is dry cutting.
Waterjet can cut through different layers of material.
Lasers can only cut through one layer of material.
