WATER JET CUTTER APPLICATIONS
WJS UK support a wide range of water jet cutting applications for aerospace in the UK. Throughout the aero engine sector installations include production of small vanes using Microcut technology, blanking of Titanium plate for production of wide chord fan blades, and trimming to near nett shape of 3D formed blades with BevelJet technology.
For fabricated assemblies, 5 Axis abrasive water jet cutters are utilised for the processing of items such as combustion casings, with customers taking advantage of a process that has no heat effected zone and that leaves the components relatively stress free when compared to traditional metal cutting processes.
Inkjet marking, that can be included on our NC Premium and Grand range of water jet cutting machines, allows for information such as part numbers, material batch numbers, order numbers etc to be printed on each profile, giving traceability and reducing a source of error.
