KMT Waterjet - The Defense Industry Cutting Solution

KMT Waterjet intensifier pump technology and abrasive waterjet cutting heads have been extensively used in the defense industry for cutting titanium, Inconel, brass, aluminum, and steel, as well as cutting composites from .039" to 6".

A complete waterjet table machine utilizing five-axis to a fully integrated six-axis motion control allows for precise metal cutting solutions for aircraft fuselages, tail and wing sections, rotary blades, and sheet-metal parts up to 12" thick, depending on the material.

There are No Heat-Affected Zones (HAZ) and no burrs or rough edges (which eliminates the need for secondary finishing). This makes KMT’s waterjet products an ideal cutting solution for the aerospace and defense industry. There’s almost nothing that high pressure water and an abrasive waterjet additive cannot cut and cut well. So when your margin for error is zero, trust KMT Waterjet and our global network of OEM experts who can customize a complete waterjet machine system to meet and exceed your needs.

Advantages of Cutting with Waterjet:

  • No Heat Affected Zones (HAZ)
  • No Material Deformation caused by heat
  • No Hazardous Fumes or Vapors
  • No Material Hardening along cut edge
  • No Reworking, or minimal reworking
  • No Changes to the Metal Structure
Waterjet machining is a cold cutting process, making it ideal for automotive, medical and aerospace applications where the material cannot be affected by heat. Nearly every type of cut is possible, from using waterjet tables for rapid hole drilling to detailed cuts for automotive applications.  Waterjet cutters use an abrasive additive to create a clean, burr-free cut that does not require secondary finishing – saving both time and money.
