water jet for copper cutting
Copper Known for its thermal and electrical conductivity properties, copper is one of the most common materials used by the electrical, automotive, and transportation industries. When copper needs to be cut, we have the tools to get the job done right.
With our innovative waterjet cutting technology, we can quickly process copper in almost any form. We understand that fast turnaround and high quality are essential for meeting the demands of copper cutting.
We currently stock 110 copper in both sheet and plate form in various grades, including:
Waterjet cutting is an excellent choice for these red metals, because it leaves a smooth edge finish and parts can be ready for use without further processing. Our sophisticated nesting software provides for maximum parts yield and reduced scrap resulting in savings to our customers.
Copper comes in many different alloy types such as 101, 102, 110, 120, 122, and in its industrial application is often used for thermal and electrical conductors.
Brass also comes in a wide variety of alloys such as 230, 260, 270, 356, and 360 and is typically used for applications where low friction is required such as locks, gears, bearings, doorknobs, ammunition, valves for plumbing and electrical applications.
Copper - Machining copper can be challenging, but abrasive water jet systems make cutting copper easy. Copper is impossible to cut on a laser due to reflection. It is also difficult to machine conventionally, because it tends to gum up conventional cutting tools. Abrasive waterjets are the clear choice for copper.
