Custom Waterjet Cut Parts in Slow Motion

Here's a behind the scenes peek at how many of our parts are bade here at Big Blue Saw. In this video, you can see custom parts being waterjet cut from 1/4 inch thick aluminum 6061 alloy, one of our most popular materials.

If you look closely, at 0:15 you can see a disc dropping into the catch tank. This region is a hole in the final part, so we wouldn't typically tab that part in place to prevent this.

This video shows the tremendous forces involved in waterjet cutting. A 60,000 psi stream of water and garnet blasting through an aluminum plate is a violent event.

By guiding this stream with servo motors under computer control, a waterjet cutting machine can make custom parts from metal, plastic, wood, and more.
