If you’ve heard me talk about Big Blue Saw before, you know I’m a passionate guy. The story on why I created the company has been told before, but I often find people who are also curious about today’s story.

In other words, what goes on during a typical day at Big Blue Saw? How do our waterjet cutting services work?

There’s a lot more to our shop than what meets the eye. Learn what we do, how we do it, and who makes it all happen as we go behind the scenes at Big Blue Saw.

An Average Day

It’s difficult to describe an average day at Big Blue Saw. On a Monday, we might be working on several robot parts. Tuesday might bring custom motor mounts and the rest of the week could be a mixture of electronic components and prototype parts.

While projects change from day to day, one thing that doesn’t is my dedicated team. I set up shop in 2005 in the great city of Atlanta, Georgia and I’ve been fortunate enough to employ some of the area’s industry experts.

Big Blue Saw’s customer advocates, Channie and Julie, bring creativity and customer service together while Clint, our shop manager, oversees all our part development, backed by his 20 years of manufacturing experience.

The Big Blue Saw family is a reliable constant that ensures a seamless experience for our customers. Here’s how it all comes together.

Sorry to disappoint, but we don’t actually use a “big blue saw” to cut out parts. The company name sounds better than “large teal machine” though, don’t you think?

From Vision to Reality with Waterjet Cutting Services

Every part that leaves our shop starts with a customer’s vision. Whether they need a part for a custom motorcycle or a fighting robot, our free CAD design tool can make their vision come to life. We’re always updating and improving our software to make it easier for customers to use, even if they’ve never virtually designed a part before. If someone is designing and needs some help, there are several resources available. Designers can:

Once a designed part has been submitted for fabrication, we review it, address any questions or concerns, and add the project to our queue.

Next, the design is put into the waterjet cutting machine, which fabricates the part from a specified material.

Even though we let our machine do the heavy work, we’re always involved during the fabrication process through our software.

If you’ve never seen a waterjet machine in action before, the first time is always impressive. While some machine shops are operating with antique equipment, we use a state-of-the-art waterjet cutting machine that can effortlessly carve through a variety of materials with incredible power and accuracy.

Once the part is finished, we inspect it and carefully package it for shipping. In just a couple weeks, a customer can be holding a part or tool that only existed in their mind before.

We’re far from the only machine shop out there. But that doesn’t mean our waterjet cutting services are the same as all the rest. Here’s what makes us unique.

  • Our software is always available and evolving.
  • Our machinery is continuously maintained and upgraded.
  • Our customer service is prompt, personal, and professional.

Together, these commitments to excellence create the Big Blue Saw experience.

The Future of Big Blue Saw

The Big Blue Saw team works every day to exceed expectations. We follow industry news to stay ahead of the competition and believe there’s always room for improvement.

Clint and I are always looking for ways to improve industry technology. We understand the success of a project relies on its design, which is why we spend so much time focused on our design software and integration.

As the owner and founder of Big Blue Saw, I’m thrilled with where we are today. But I want tomorrow to provide our customers with even faster, better parts. I’m always looking to improve without compromising the personal touch customers appreciate.

If you’ve been shut out or disappointed by a machine or fabrication shop before, but still have big dreams, Big Blue Saw can help. You’ll experience a simple design process, fair prices, and quick delivery, whether you need one part or a thousand. We’re genuine people passionate about our waterjet cutting services. To put it simply, we provide real parts, made by real people, that provide real solutions.
