Sheet Metal Fabrication Services(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
||Austin Waterjet offers precision CNC forming of sheet metal and plate such as mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, etc. With European style precision ground tooling and repeatability of the hybrid servo-drive rams, we can offer tight tolerances and high production volume and still retain the versatility for prototype orders.
With the innovative “One Touch” punch holders and “Quick Change” V-dies, Austin Waterjet can offer faster and more accurate setups while maintaining tolerances of +/-0.005” up to 10 gauge thick and +/- 0.020 3/16” and thicker. These features combined with the sectionalized precision ground tooling allows for smooth transitions between different types of materials and thicknesses.
All of these features coupled with our sheet metal specific 2D/3D modeling software allows Austin Waterjet to import electronic drawing files such as DWG, DXF, PDF, IGES model, STEP model, or Solidworks model to produce a finished product in as short as 3-5 days. With our software we are also capable of creating our own 2D/3D electronic files which allows Austin Waterjet to make your concepts into reality.
We also offer welding and light machining for a turn-key solution.
