The Power of Waterjet Cutting Aluminum

Created at :   May 09 2024

At The Metal Shop, we've mastered the art of working with aluminum, making it not just our specialty, but our passion. As experts in waterjet cutting aluminum, we're redefining what's possible in the world of metalworking.

Aluminum reigns supreme as the primary metal in our arsenal, constituting a staggering 90% of our work. From fabricating structures to crafting intricate parts, we've honed our skills to deliver excellence in every project. But what sets us apart? It's our commitment to utilizing cutting-edge technology to streamline the fabrication process.

Our journey begins with the raw material. Sheets of aluminum, waiting to be transformed into works of art, undergo a meticulous cutting process. Here's where our waterjet cutting prowess shines. With a high-pressure stream of water mixed with an abrasive substance, we slice through aluminum with unparalleled precision. Unlike traditional methods, waterjet cutting produces minimal heat, ensuring clean edges without compromising the material's integrity.

But waterjet cutting is just one piece of the puzzle. At The Metal Shop, we embrace a holistic approach to fabrication. Parts destined for welding are precision-cut using our laser, waterjet, or turret press. This strategic integration allows us to seamlessly move through the fabrication process, saving time and maximizing efficiency.

Speaking of welding, it's our bread and butter. Aluminum TIG welding is our forte, and we take pride in delivering welds of unmatched quality. Each welded assembly incorporates parts cut with surgical precision, thanks to our state-of-the-art cutting technologies. This synergy not only ensures superior craftsmanship but also accelerates the fabrication timeline.

But we don't stop at cutting and welding. Our capabilities extend to forming and rolling aluminum into custom shapes. With press brakes at our disposal, we bend and mold aluminum with precision, bringing our clients' visions to life. Our 3D bending and layout software further optimizes the process, maximizing material usage and minimizing waste.

And let's not forget about machining. Complex machining jobs are a breeze at The Metal Shop. Leveraging our laser or waterjet in tandem with in-house machining capabilities, we deliver end-to-end solutions without the hassle of outsourcing. From rough cuts to finish machining, we handle it all under one roof, ensuring cost-effectiveness and convenience for our clients.

At The Metal Shop, waterjet cutting aluminum isn't just a service—it's a testament to our dedication to excellence. With precision as our compass and efficiency as our engine, we're transforming the landscape of metal fabrication one project at a time. Join us on this journey, where innovation meets craftsmanship, and possibilities are limitless.
