Waterjet Cutting Services
Water jet and laser cutting are precise, cost-effective manufacturing solutions, whether you need a single part or thousands of them. Insul-Fab is happy to earn your trust by providing these services.
Capable of creating complex shapes with exceptional precision without the need for tooling, waterjet cutting services and metal laser cutting services are perfect for everything from prototyping to mass manufacture. Insul-Fab leverages these advanced fabrication techniques to take designs from print to production quickly and affordably. As a leading provider of waterjet cutting services, Insul-Fab is able to answer all your needs.
The Water Jet Cutting Edge
With waterjet cutting, high-pressure streams of water mixed with abrasive media are used to create designs or shapes in raw material workpieces. This process offers many advantages over cutting methods utilizing hard tooling.
Thin streams and Computer-Numerical-Control, or CNC, systems enable water jet machines to cut sharp corners, holes, and complex shapes with small inner radii. It’s ideal for projects with intricate designs or tight-tolerance dimensions.
Water Jet cutting equipment allows for faster production of parts without the need to wait for tooling preparation. Changes to the design can be accommodated on the fly, eliminating wasted tooling and time. This saves money and improves turnaround time. For some applications, tooling for die cut or other processing can be implemented for higher volume production or lower unit price after the laser cutting has perfected the fit and supported the initial needs.
Superior Edge Quality
Unlike hard tooling, water jet cutting yields smooth, uniform, and shaving-free edges. In many cases, secondary finishing processes like deburring are not required. This improves efficiency while decreasing costs.
A Green Process
Water jet cutting doesn’t create hazardous waste such as fumes, gases, or oil-contaminated chips, a claim machining methods that utilize hard tooling can’t make. This is ideal for clients seeking environmentally conscious supply chain partners.
Laser Cutting Advantages
Metal laser cutting services intricate patterns and designs from raw material using a focused laser beam, which vaporizes material in a localized area. A co-axial gas jet ejects the molten material and creates kerf, and a continuous cut is generated by moving the laser beam or workpiece under CNC control.
Pinpoint laser beam sizing and innovative computer-aided controls make laser cutting highly accurate. Additional benefits include:
The primary advantage of laser cutting is the ability to hold tight tolerances, even down to +/-0.2 mm. This makes laser jet cutting ideal for critical, complex projects.

Non-Contacting Machining Solution
When it comes to laser cutting, only the beam makes contact with the raw material workpiece. As a result, there is no mechanical friction that could wear tools.
Another critical benefit of laser cutting is affordability. There’s no need to build custom tooling or acquire special cutting devices, which reduces costs.
