CNC waterjet cutting services for aluminium, steel, plastics & more

We offer high precision CNC waterjet cutting services both for soft materials and sheet metals such as aluminium, steel and copper. We provide an on-demand manufacturing and can fabricate any quantities of parts, from a single piece or a prototype up to large series. Shift has access to the most modern CNC waterjet cutter on the market through its extensive network throughout Europe. This makes it possible to deliver manufactured parts fast all over Europe at affordable prices.

Ready waterjet cut parts can be post-processed with polishing, coatings, heat-treatment and others.

What is CNC waterjet cutting?

Waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure jet of water as a cutting tool. The process is guided by a computer that follows a pre-uploaded CAD model. Waterjet cutting can be of two types:

  • Water-only cutting: it uses pure water and is applied for cutting soft materials like polymers
  • Abrasive waterjet: it uses water mixed with an abrasive and is applied for cutting harder materials like aluminium, steel or titanium

Waterjet cutting technology does not alter the structure of the materials as it happens with laser or plasma cutting because of the heat. As the result, the cut paths have smooth edges and often do not require polishing.

Production possibilities

Quantity: from a single piece to large series of parts

Size: any size, maximum thickness of sheet metal possible for waterjet cutting varies depending on the metal

Tolerance: a standard tolerance level for the majority of CNC waterjet cutters ranges from 0.05 to 0.1 mm. Tolerance levels can be adjusted to our customer’s requirements

CNC waterjet cutter: we use both water-only and abrasive waterjet cutters
