Advantages of our abrasivejets

Our Abrasivejets have many advantages over other machining methods:

  • Wide range of materials
    We can machine a wide range of thickness and materials, including metals, stone, plastics, glass, carpet, and ceramics.
  • Quality finish
    Materials cut by our abrasivejet have a smooth, satin-like finish, similar to a fine sandblasted finish.
  • No heat in machining process
    Abrasivejets abrade material at room temperatures. As a result, there are no heat-affected areas or structural changes in materials. We can also machine hardened metals and materials with low melting points.
  • Environmentally friendly
    We use garnet as an abrasive. Garnet is a reddish natural crystal, with a Mohs hardness of 6.5 to 7.5. No noxious gases or liquids are used in our abrasivejet machining, nor are there any oils used in the machining process.
  • No tool changing
    A wide range of conventional processes can be performed with this single tool allowing us to provide rapid delivery to our clients:
    • Drilling
    • Sawing
    • Broaching
    • Gear cutting
    • Profile milling
    • Punching
    • Slitting
    • Sline cutting
    • Blanking
  • Minimal burr
    No heavy burrs are produced by our process. Parts can often be used directly without deburring.
