Water Jet Components
Whether it is a buildup for tooling or a gasket for sealing water-jet cut components are a nice touch to your tooling project. Sharples offers water jet cut rubber ejection producing dies with even ejection; hand cut ejection can cause problems when die-cutting and reduce the quality of finished parts. Sharples can provide a uniform cut set of ejection rubber. Sharples stocks numerous types of ejection material that we note on your individual specification requirements.
Abrasive waterjet cutting allows Sharples to cut virtually any material. By mixing garnet into an extremely high-pressure water stream up to 60,000 PSI, abrasive water-jet cutting can provide a clean cut in material up to 6" thick. The quality of the edge depends upon the speed of the cutting process. Sharples can cut aluminum, steel, and stainless steel, among other materials, by abrasive water jet for both customer tooling and part manufacturing.
In addition to waterjet cutting, Sharples also provides CNC milling services.
