National Metals Provides Precision Water Jet Cutting Service

Jet Edge, Inc. is pleased to announce that National Metals is now offering precision water jet cutting services at its metal processing and fabrication plant in DeForest, Wis.

National Metals is capable of processing complex parts from virtually any material with its new 60,000 psi Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry water jet cutting system, which features an 5’x13’ work envelope and is capable of maintaining +/- 0.001" linear positional accuracy (over 12") and +/- 0.001" repeatability (bi-directional).

A sister company of Suncor, Inc., a Florida structural steel and miscellaneous metals subcontractor, National Metals specializes in metal sales, metal processing and specialty fabrication.  It offers a wide range of services, from concept to final assembly.

The Wisconsin metal fabricator uses its Jet Edge waterjet to cut a variety of materials, including aluminum, carbon steel and stainless steel.  The company offers water jet job shop services, and also cuts parts for its own specialty aluminum and stainless steel products, which include stainless steel tabletops and sinks, as well as custom brackets.

National Metals added its water jet to custom cut stainless steel sheets for its own products and to expand its business by offering water jet cutting services to other firms, explained Douglas Kuiper, National Metals senior partner.

“We have already been able to take in new types work thanks to our water jet,” Kuiper said. “As an example, we were able to fabricate specialty egg-crate grating products that are impossible to make without equipment similar to a water jet.
