Water jet cut odd materials:
With our waterjet cutting facilities, we can waterjet cut virtually any material to virtually any two dimensional shape up to 2440mm x 1220mm and to thicknesses up to and beyond 180mm thick.
On this page we have selected some materials that won’t fit in other sections on this website as they are quite unique and individual.
We can cut Felt, Fur felt, polystyrene, Ferrite discs to name a few. Some of these items can work out quite expensive to cut due to special setups of the water jet cutting machine and work holding, however sometimes odd materials come in very useful when thinking outside the box in engineering so the cost can be offset for the ability to waterjet cut odd materials with good shape and accuracy.
Although if the part quantity is big enough, then the cost of special setups of the waterjet machine will be diluted across the batch making waterjet cutting quite a cost effective solution.
We are happy to conduct trials and test cuts but this will be chargeable time.

Shown next to a pound coin to give a good sense of scale.
The discs had to be waterjet cut as the accuracy and clean cut was important to the end use of this product.
polystyrene waterjet cut to size...
Polystyrene can be waterjet cut to acurite size and shapes, it is quite difficult to waterjet cut as it is very light and soft, but we are able to do it with some special setups.
