Sharpline Industrial Waterjet Capabilities

Why Use Waterjets for your product? Sharpline Industrial is equiped with the A-Jet Omax Abrasive Waterjet system. The A-Jet can easily cut beveled edges, angled sides, and countersinks. Our A-Jet Omax Waterjet system is a complete software-controlled multi-axis cutting head that greatly expands the versatility of the OMAX JetMachining Center. With a cutting range from 0° to 60°. Sharpline Industrial utilizes the Intelli-MAX Software Suite that will allow the A-Jet to compensate for taper and easily create complex 3D shapes. With its inherent high level of positioning accuracy, and is capable of cutting parts that require no secondary finishing, significantly reducing part production time.

Re-think Your Cutting Solution

Sharpline Industrial uses the A-Jet Omax Abrasive Waterjet system to complement their manufacturing processes. Sharpline Industrial can quickly produce a complete final part, ready to go. We can also produce a semi-finished or near-net-shape blank part suitable for secondary processing by conventional means. The abrasive waterjet process does not affect material properties, so the efficiency of conventional processes is not degraded.

Flexible and Versatile

A waterjet utilizes a high pressure stream of water to erode a narrow line in the stock material. To cut a wider range of materials from tool steel to titanium to foam, a granular abrasive is added to the waterjet, increasing the cutting power. This flexibility greatly enhances the versatility of a waterjet machine, as it can easily switch from cutting ½” (1.27cm) foam gaskets to 4” (10.16cm) titanium brackets.

3D Machining

Through advanced yet easy-to-use software enhancements such as XData, the A-Jet is capable of cutting complex three dimensional shapes quickly and accurately. Simply set the cutting angle to the drawing entity, and the software automatically sets the A-Jet to accurately and quickly cut the shape.

Taper Compensation

The A-Jet is capable of fully automatic taper compensation, resulting in parts with square edges. Taper compensation is fully software controlled and requires no extra programming, simplifying production and reducing secondary machining.

Waterjet Cutting Services: 60x120in cutting capacity

Our abrasive water jet cutting machinery is equipped with two axes and a 60x120in cutting capacity. Specializing in cutting steel and stainless steels up to six inches thick, our equipment is also able to process a wide variety of other materials, including alloys, brass, titanium, and plastic.

Sharpline Industrial is able to work with a wide variety of applications, including, but not limited to, adapters and architectural components, our abrasive water jet cutting machinery has serviced businesses ranging from equipment manufacturers to architectural industries. Our products will always meet high industry standards, and our lead times are the best in the industry.

OMAX JetMachining Center

Sharpline Industrial offers the capabilities that the Precision JetMachining Center waterjet machine provides. Our advanced abrasive waterjet technology enables us to cut complex workpieces from virtually any material with the utmost precision and speed. Waterjet machinery work with a wide variety of materials. These materials include: Copper, brass, aluminum, Pre-hardened steel, Mild steel, Titanium, Granite, Marble, Stainless Steel, Plastics, Composites, Glass, Laminated material and Flammable materials.

No heat-affected zone (HAZ)

Waterjet cutting does not heat your part there is not thermal distortion, which can occur with lasers. Waterjets do not change the properties of the material.

Why use Waterjet machining

Cheaper than other processes.

Cut virtually any material and shape

  • pre hardened steel
  • mild steel
  • exotics like Titanium, Inconel, Hastalloy
  • gummy 304 stainless
  • (most steels cut at the same speed, whether hardened, or not.)
  • Copper, Brass, Aluminum: They are a cinch!
  • brittle materials like glass, ceramic, quartz, stone.
  • laminates and flammable materials
  • Make all sorts of shapes with only one tool.
  • Cut wide range of thickness’ to reasonable tolerance up to 2” (50mm) thick
  • Up to 5” (127mm) or thicker where tolerance not important, or in soft materials.
  • Leaves a satin smooth finish, thus reducing secondary operations
  • Narrow kerf (0.030") removes only a small amount of material.
  • Can easily switch between high production, and single piece production
  • Cuts composite materials, or materials where dissimilar materials are glued together
