Cut Aluminum with KMT Waterjet.
Waterjet Machines are the most versatile tool for cutting aluminum.
There are many methods to cut aluminum, including laser, plasma, hacksaws and even shears for cutting very thin aluminum sheets. However, he most versatile machining tool to cut aluminum is with waterjet technology.
Water jet can cut up to 15" of aluminum, even with five axis cutting. Thin aluminum sheets, including 6061 alloy aluminum, can be stacked for cutting with waterjet systems.
Cutting aluminum with KMT Waterjet, there is no secondary finishing. Waterjet will not melt aluminum or leave a burr finish. And waterjet tables can cut aluminum using very intricate designs and patterns, all with a smooth finish.
