Waterjet Cutting

Since 1992, Advanced Cutting Systems, Inc. offers waterjet cutting, an alternative to the conventional cutting process. This can virtually cut different materials of varying thicknesses.

Our Specialization

We specialize in cutting heavy plates, special alloys as well as aluminum and stainless sheet metals. If you require accurate flat pattern net or near-net shapes, we can produce them through waterjet cutting.


Benefits of Waterjet Cutting

  • Control cutting tolerances to =/-0.005" (depending on material type and thickness)
  • Cut through different materials of varying thickness, including 4"-thick stainless steel
  • Design a cutting pattern based on client specifications
  • Generate no lateral force during the cutting process, which typically eliminates the need for fixturing
  • Minimal or no upfront tooling charges
  • Have a narrow cutting stream minimizing material waste (.007" straight water to .042" abrasive waterjet)
  • Handle all types of projects
  • No thermal damage to the base material
  • Produce consistent smooth, burr-free edges that virtually eliminate finishing expenses
  • Work on prints, drawings, DXF, or IGES files

Laser Cutting

Do you need sheet metal, aluminum, or stainless parts cut at an affordable rate without the expense of stamping dies? Perhaps you want your sheet metal parts to be accurately cut and delivered in a timely fashion?

Choose our laser cutting services for precision, versatility, and affordability. We offer budget-friendly laser cutting of carbon steel up to 1/2", stainless steel up to 1/4", and aluminum up to 3/16.

The Cost-Effective Option

While waterjet cutting is a versatile process, laser cutting can give you highly accurate parts at a cost-effective rate. If you require stainless or carbon steel flat patterns with tight tolerances, we can deliver them through this method.

Compared to Stamping

Unlike stamping, laser cutting does not require the process of manufacturing tooling, which is expensive and time-consuming.

Compared to Plasma Cutting

Unlike plasma cutting, our laser cutting process produces parts with tolerances of +/-0.001" (depending on material thickness). The edges of the materials need little to no furnishing at all.

Why Choose Us for Laser Cutting?

  • Design a cutting pattern based on client specifications
  • Offer high-speed cutting services translates to affordable parts
  • Produce parts with tolerances held to +/-0.001"
  • Require no tooling, which translates to shorter lead times
  • Specialize in mid-volume production runs
  • With systems that can cut a wide variety of materials (carbon and alloy steels, stainless steel, aluminum, and certain plastics)
  • Work on prints, drawings, DXF, or IGES files


In addition to our waterjet cutting and laser cutting services, we can accommodate a wide variety of secondary fabrication processes. We have a precision press brake that can bend parts according to your specifications.

Offering Value-Added Services

Our facilities have various European-style precision ground tools that can do most bending applications. We also offer production welding. These additional value-added services make us your one-stop processor for different applications.
