Waterjet Cutting Service in North West UK

You won’t be surprised when we tell you our company is primarily a Waterjet business and as such, we run three industry-leading Waterjet machines manufactured by the OMAX Corporation. We use ultra-high-pressure waterjet cutting techniques to ensure a fast turnaround on parts. Water is compressed up to 50,000 PSI and forced through a diamond orifice at 2,500 feet per second.

Waterjets are incredibly versatile when it comes to cutting many different products, from thicker steels including hardened tool steels, sheet metal up to 300mm thick, and the likes of titanium, copper, acrylic, plastic, wood and brass, right through to cutting foam for case inserts and ceramic tiles/stone. In fact, there’s very little we can’t cut with them! Waterjets can also be used to cut reflective materials that lasers can’t cut.

We also use Taper Compensation Heads on two of our machines which enables us to go straight to a finished product on many engineered parts.

Northwest Waterjet have been serving clients all over the North West since 2013. Our reputation proceeds us as being a reliable, speedy waterjet cutting company who can offer quick turnaround times on your products or parts. We even offer a CAD service for those wishing to have their designs drawn up.

Our waterjet cutting service can also be extended to those who live further afield, our courier is able to ship anywhere in the UK! Whether you’re based in Manchester, Liverpool, Preston, Skelmersdale or beyond, our waterjet cutting service is a hugely popular and flexible option.

Our waterjet cutting service is also a very green way of cutting, as it doesn’t require any gas or heat during the cutting process, the abrasive used is naturally occurring and the only other additive is water!
Advantages of Waterjet cutting include no heat affected zones and no hardened edges, it can also cut much thicker materials than laser and plasma cutters going up to around 200mm thick.

We’re based in the North West, so regardless if you’re based in Manchester, Liverpool, Preston, Skelmersdale or further afield, contact us on 01257 650050 or email sales@northwestwaterjet.co.uk for more information on our waterjet cutting service.

Our three directors all have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Waterjets, having all been in the industry for many years prior to starting the company.
