S&R, Inc. offers high quality precision waterjet cutting services for customers in industries from automotive to retail. Our on-site equipment features 2 axis cutting with and dual cutting heads, 75hp dual intensifier, and a ball screw motion system. Integrated shuttle tables are utilized for optimized production on large jobs. With a cutting speed of 500 in/min and a nozzle pressure of 60,000 psi, this process can be effectively used on a range of materials including 304 and 316 stainless steels, aluminum, titanium, inconel, brass, copper, PVC, acrylic, rubber, woven Kevlar, composites, and a host of other plastics and metals. Maximum cutting length is up to 12’, and maximum widths are up to 6’, processed while holding a close tolerance of ±0.007”. Cutting thicknesses vary according to material - up to 1” for stainless, up to 3” for aluminum, up to 4” for steel and up to 6” with inconel. We can produce smooth finished edges, with edge qualities of 1 through 5.

This green technology will not thermally distort or harden materials, there is minimum part stress, and no toxic fumes when processing composite materials. Up to 6 sheets of thin cut material can be stacked for simultaneous processing, and material costs are reduced through the use of nesting. Precision waterjet cutting can reduce or eliminate secondary operations. Turnaround times are less than 2 weeks, handling short and long production runs.
