The machines' versatility and accuracy allow them to be used in the production of a plethora of products. ICS's most common requests come from the aerospace industry where the tightest of tolerances must be held. ICS is home to 5 state-of-the-art Flow waterjet machines, each with its own 94,000 PSI pump. Three of our Mach 500 machines also feature Dynamic XD™ cutting head technology that can cut bevels up to 60°.
Precision in aerospace manufacturing is imperative, and there are zero margins for error. Waterjet cutting services can be used to make components for jet engines and turbine blades. The lack of heat-affected zones during the waterjet process means that there is no thermal distortion, making waterjet cutting the superior cutting method for the aerospace industry.
The manufacturing of military machinery depends heavily on abrasive waterjet cutting. The waterjet machine’s versatility allows for it to be used for a variety of materials and projects that are typically difficult to machine, including: composites, rotary blades, jet engines, and various metals up to 11" in thickness.
The versatility of a waterjet machine makes it perfect for the automotive industry. Waterjet cutting is capable of cutting both interior and exterior components. Professionals in the automotive industry often use this process because of its precision, smooth edges, and lack of mechanical stress.
Advancements in waterjet cutting technology have made it possible to hold the tight tolerances needed in medical manufacturing. ICS's 5-axis cutting heads allow for cutting angles and bevels up to 60 degrees making it the ideal choice for many medical manufacturers. This process is often used for both prototyping and larger runs of components.
Waterjet cutting in architecture is the preferred cutting process, because of the machine's capability to cut thicker materials in irregular shapes while maintaining accuracy and cutting at fast speeds. Materials often cut for architectural applications include acrylic, wood, metals & alloys, and stone.
