Waterjet Cutting

At Tube Fab/Roman Engineering, we utilize our waterjet cutting equipment to provide stand-alone parts, and component parts that may be added to our clients’ tube assemblies. Waterjet cutting uses water at extremely high pressure – 60,000 psi – to cut virtually any material.

The benefits of waterjet cutting include:

  • Cuts almost any material up to 6 inches thick
  • Waterjet cut tolerances of +/-.005" to .008" can be achieved on thin stock.
  • Additional cut tolerance allowance for taper on thicker stock may be required.
  • We can also offer HAAS machining to achieve tighter feature tolerance, such as attachment holes or datum features.
  • Thin cut width reduces scrap
  • Smooth cut eliminates secondary edge finishing
  • No heat build-up – no material distortion
  • Handles small lot sizes and high volume production
  • Eliminates tooling costs for low volume flanges and brackets

We work with the following materials:

  • Aluminum
  • Armor Plate
  • Brass
  • Bronze
  • Bulletproof Glass
  • Ceramics
  • Copper
  • Fiberglass
  • Granite
  • Magnesium
  • Marble
