Water Jet

Achieve the Most Precise Cut Every Time

SWIFT HORSE’s OMAX JetMachining Center is fast and accurate, ideal for a wide range of machining needs. Our water jet table can cut stock up to 5 feet by 10 feet and materials up to 6 inches thick. For increased versatility, we use the A-Jet for taper-free edges and the ability to bevel up to 60 degrees.

Our high-precision productivity provides accurate cutting capabilities within .003 of an inch, and repeatability within .002 of an inch.

The computer-operated high-pressure water and abrasive machining tool can produce one or as many duplicate pieces needed in an endless variety of applications, from simple to complex. Using your CAD files, hand-drawn guides, a picture, or an existing model, we can create custom designs/cuts in your material of choice. The advanced programming capabilities offer quick setup and the ability to make changes throughout the process easily.

Benefits of a Water Jet Machine

  • VERSATILITY: Machines a wide range of materials and thicknesses, from metals to glass
  • FINISH: Leaves behind a satin-smooth edge, reducing secondary operations
  • NO INDUCED STRESS: Does not create heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses
  • EFFICIENCY: Environmentally “green” system with low electrical consumption, without the use of gases, oils or solvents. Just water.
  • LOW WASTE: Minimal material waste due to precise cuts that maximize space
