Fabrication & Prototyping
EPS has Water Jet capability in the form of a mid-sized Ward Jet X-1530 engineered for speed, accuracy and strength. Our X-1530 provides a continuous output pressure up to 60,000 psi with a material working footprint of 8 feet length by 4 feet width and can cut up to 10 inches in thickness (some material can be up to 12 inches thick). It can create shapes and parts with flawless precision while minimizing maintenance time. The water jet allows for more efficiency and lasts longer than competing machines. The water jet uses the combination of highly pressurized water, air and an abrasive of Garnet (environmentally friendly) to perform its cutting functions. Cuts and material can vary from rough cuts (quicker) to precision cuts with a ± 0.005” tolerance on materials such as: Alloys, Steels, Composites, Plastics/Acrylics, Rubber, Gaskets, Fiberglass, Glass and Styrofoam.
