My friend Brian (VRI Sharpening Services, Inc.) donated some 14″ saw blades destined to go to the scrap pile. I took them to Dennis at EB IronArt to do some magic with his Hammerhead Calypso WaterJet. You can check out the WaterJet in action on the EB IronArt website.
The Hammerhead Waterjet cutting system allows us to cut a wide variety of materials with precision accuracy, giving the customer the ability to reproduce parts, cut holes with a +/- 0.003 tolerance. This system utilizes a Autoline abrasive cutting head with a 60,000 psi operating pressure of water and sand to cut materials up to 6 inches thick and sheets as large as 5′ X 10′. The system can handle materials ranging from glass, plexiglass, stainless, carbon steel, aluminum, and stone to material as soft as foam.
