Waterjet Cutting for the Medical Industry
Waterjet cutting for medical parts offers distinct levels of precision and value that other cutting services simply cannot match. When it comes to meeting quality control, tight tolerances, and custom cutting requests on a variety of metals and alloys, commercial waterjet cutting for medical supplies is always up to the challenge.
Medical Industry Waterjet Cutting Services From Laserfab
Laserfab’s metal medical parts waterjet cutting services produce the type of fast, repeatable precision that makes us a true partner in any medical instrument manufacturer’s supply chain. Our waterjet cutting process makes use of hydraulic intensifier pumps to produce high-pressure jets of water — mixed with a primarily garnet abrasive material — of up to 87,000 psi. This ability allows us to accurately cut through most metals, including steel, stainless steel, and aluminum with the following beneficial results:
- Ability to cut with no heat produced that could adversely affect the cut and/or material
- Zero added stress to materials throughout the process of cutting
- Precision-first cuts that reduce secondary handling and machining
- Highly complex cutting capabilities
- Ability to cut equally well through thick and thin materials
In addition, with Laserfab’s Dynamic Waterjet cutting technology in combination with advanced software — such as Flowmaster — we’re able to provide better cutting results in a shorter period of time, including custom orders, which means greater overall savings to you.
