Premium water jet cutting with multiple machines
Abrasive water jet cutting has become an essential element in our product portfolio. P.P. Group offers a premium water jet cutting service to rival the very best, with the cleanest, most accurate finishes, minimal taper and no Heat Affected Zone (HAZ). P.P. Group offers its clients up to 45° bevelling and a weld prepping service, meaning our customers receive a complete solution.
Water jet cutting machines use a high-pressure jet of water in conjunction with an abrasive substance such as garnet. The use of water means clean, burr-free cuts can be produced with no burning or melting, no noxious fumes (a major benefit for the environment) and no damage to the structure of your chosen material. This is why water jet cutting is the preferred method for nuclear and aerospace applications, where structural integrity is paramount.
An enormous benefit of this cutting method is that, with a jet approximately 1.2 mm in diameter, highly intricate shapes can be water jet cut into a vast range of materials – even aluminium, titanium, and steel. In addition, our machines can cut parts simultaneously using both heads, reducing your lead time and costs.
By offering a weld prepping service, customers are able to receive profiled components with an accurate weld prep, to increase weld penetration; thus saving time. This service will also reduce the amount of materials processed and reduce machining time. It can even counter sink holes, thereby reducing processing time even further.
