WaterJet

Our state-of-the-art waterjet will cut any material up to 160" X 96" X 6" deep. The waterjet system is controlled by software developed specifically for waterjet operations to produce fast, accurate cuts. The waterjet can produce precise shapes from nearly any material to net or near-net dimensions without burrs, slag, delamination or heat-distortion. Waterjet systems routinely cut complex openings, patterns and contours from even hard-to-cut materials in shapes that are impossible to produce using traditional tools. Metals that can be cut include: alloys, aluminum, brass, kevlar, titanium, tungsten, copper, etc.

Gun Drilling & Deep Hole Drilling

Our gun drilling staff specialize in drilling straight, deep, accurate, close tolerance holes, ranging from .125" to 3" diameter and a depth of 72". We drill concentric, off-center or angle holes in any shape material, round bars, blocks, plates or castings in any material - alloy steels, tool steels, stainless, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, and more. We can handle any shape of casting or forgings. Our equipment includes Eldorado, Dehoff, Phillips, Drillmation, and Mollart. We have one of the largest selections of drill sizes in the country. Let us help you solve your difficult deep hole problems.

Trepanning and Ejector Drilling using BTA or STS tooling, covers hole diameters ranging from 1" to 4" to a depth of 60". These production systems allow for faster feed rates reducing cycle time for lower cost per hole. Alloy steels, cast iron, and aluminum alloys work well with these drilling methods.

We offer Hinge Drilling in hole sizes from .062" to .250" in aluminum, steel, or stainless. Extruded, forgings, or machined type, in prototype or production quantities in lengths up to 72". We have dozens of fixtures in stock to handle any style hinge. We can also fabricate fixtures to drill special styles or types.
