Whether hoisting our abrasive water cutting tools into the air or submerging our ultra-high powered cutting tools under water, we’ve got the expertise, experience and equipment to achieve successful results. more
When you need to cut into metal, sometimes a laser isn’t the best solution. With a water jet, you can cut into metal with the same levels of precision and speed, and the added benefit of greater flexibility and cost efficiency.
AK Services water jet cutting systems are an ideal solution for cutting a variety of metals including steel, aluminum, brass, titanium, and more. By using ultra-high powered water jets, our technicians are capable of cutting metal virtually everywhere.
Water jets can provide the metal cutting you need quickly, reliably, and precisely. However, unlike lasers, water jets eliminate heat-affected zones and create the close tolerances and burr free cuts you need, without requiring additional finishing.
Injecting an abrasive into the water jet enables the AK Services team to cut through a number of metals. Abrasives typically used in metal cutting include garnet (most common) as well as aluminum oxide and silicon carbide (most aggressive).
