Did you ever have problem cutting thick materials to meet your specifications and quality standards?
Water jet technology has revolutionized the art of metal cutting, and Milgo Bufkin is one of the first and most experienced providers of high-quality water jet cutting services.
MILGO/BUFKIN Offers Both Laser and Water Jet Cutting
MILGO/BUFKIN offers clients a full range of cutting services using both laser cutters and state-of-the-art water jet. Laser cutting is effective for metals up to about 1 3/8 ” and is also effective for paper and plastic. Water jet is the best technology for thicker metals and is also effective on glass and stone. Water jet can provide precise cutting on materials up to thicknesses of 8”.
MILGO/BUFKIN has built a reputation for quality in the metal fabrication business since 1916. While our tradition of fine craftsmanship began almost a hundred years ago, we are proud that our technology is always state-of-the-art. We have always believed in using the newest and most advanced technologies for working in metal. Water jet cutting, a highly precise, computer controlled technology, offers our clients a deeper quality cut, faster and more economically than older technologies.
Water Jet Cutting can save you time and money
Water jet cutting is computer driven. For you that means results are faster and more accurate. Minimal fixturing is required for most parts cut by water jet technology. The process can machine virtually any two-dimensional shape. This makes it extremely cost-effective for short runs for prototypes, for example, with metals that are difficult to cut conventionally. Water jet cutting is also used for architectural design and signage as well as for manufactured component parts.
Water jets produce results with no heat-affected zones, heat distortions or mechanical stress. The process is much faster than traditional cutting techniques and is extremely cost-effective, particularly for metals over an inch thick.
Ideal for non-precision parts in quantity, water jet cutting economically produces near net shapes ready for final machining. Set-up time is fast because tooling requirements are minimal, tolerances can be held consistently, and parts can be stacked to minimize run time and production costs. Another advantage: advanced software and a naturally small kerf serve to maximize the yield from each metal sheet.
