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.

You can read more about waterjet cutting or get an instant quote for waterjet cut parts on our website.
