5 Axis Waterjet Cutting

Working with both metal and non-metal materials, Cascade Gasket offers full 5-axis waterjet cutting services. The full 5-axis capability combined with a 5 ft. x 10 ft. x 6 in. work envelope allow us to waterjet cut a wide range of pieces for clients in the medical, semiconductor, military, automotive, aerospace, and building industries. Our machines feature 55,000 psi cutting power from either water only or water and abrasive material jets, and feature a high definition cutting head with near zero kerf compensation software.

Edge quality is rated at 4.5 (on a scale of 1 to 5), and we can manufacture to +/- 0.005” tolerances. Among the metal materials we work with are aluminum, brass, stainless steel, tungsten carbide, Monel, Inconel, and titanium. We also work with non-metals such as foam, rubber, concrete, glass, wood, plastic, and plexiglass, among many others. We are black belt certified in Six Sigma practices, and operate under lean manufacturing efficiency as well. Contact Cascade Gasket for more information on our capabilities for your products.

Cutting Axis

Cutting Axis is the number of axes of motion a cutting machine is capable of cutting. 2-axis machines are used to cut flat sheet material while a 3-axis machine is used to cut three dimensional parts. Some 5-axis and 6-axis machines can perform cutting operations on parts that have been pre-formed by casting or machining.

Intended Cutting Material (Metal)Alloys, Aluminum, Armor, Brass, Bronze, Chromium, Copper, Ferrous Metals, Hastelloy, Inconel, Molybdenum, Monel, Nickel Alloys, Non Ferrous Metals, Stainless Steel, Steel, Tantalum, Titanium, Tungsten Carbide, Waspalloy, Zirconium

Edge Quality
Edge quality is defined with a scoring system with the numbers 1 through 5. "5" is an excellent appearance with no striations and is the most accurate. "1" is a poor appearance, high in striations and is rarely used.
