Laser & Waterjet Cutting 
  • Flow Waterjet: 120” x 240” bed cuts up to 4" thick material
  • 3 lasers from 2,000 to 4,000 watts:  sheets up to 81” x 160” in .005” to ¾” thick material
  • CAD programs work with lasers resulting in the least amount of material waste and repeat accurate cuts.
  • High quality laser cuts frequently don’t require additional machining or finishing.

Vertical Machining Centers
  • Haas VF 8: 60" x 40" x 30" X, Y, Z travel
  • Haas VF 3ss: 40" x 20" x 25" X, Y, Z travel

Forming
  • 2 press formers 
  • 9 press brakes: 60 to 750 tons; 5 with automatic back gauging
  • 2 set-ups for European sectional tooling for close tolerance work and faster production runs. 
  • Our 750 ton press brake can form material up to 20 feet long. 
Rolling
  • 7 rolls for angle, channel, beam, plate and sheet. 
  • Cylinders up to 1 ¼” thick x 30” I.D. x 10’ long.
