MIRO Manufacturing’s fabrication capabilities include waterjet cutting. A waterjet is neither better nor worse than a laser, CNC machining center or wire EDM. It is a matter of using the right tool for the right job. Using ultra high pressure water combined with a garnet abrasive, waterjet machines can cut virtually any material – ferrous and nonferrous metals including stainless steel, aluminum and titanium as well as composites, foam, glass, plastic, rubber, stone and more.
Waterjets have an advantage over lasers in that waterjet cutting is a cold cutting technology. The absence of heat eliminates distortion and mechanical stresses, and reduces or eliminates costly secondary finishing operations. Waterjets also have the ability to cut reflective materials.
In the production of high precision parts it is extremely important to control the taper accuracy of a waterjet. Greatly reducing cut speed is one way to easily reduce or eliminate taper, but it comes at a great cost in productivity. The taper control system on MIRO’s waterjet automatically adjusts the cut for maximum taper accuracy without sacrificing cutting speed providing you with the highest quality cut at minimum cost.
MIRO currently produces a part that combines waterjet cutting services, CNC machining, assembly and welding. As your premier contract manufacturer, you can rely on us to manufacture all your projects whether they involve one process or many.
