C&A Industries has been a market leader in providing waterjet cutting services and waterjet cut parts in Lethbridge, AB for over 10 years! Our Flow Waterjet cutting technology utilizes high-pressure water (85ksi), mixed with an abrasive substance to create a jet that can pierce and cut through almost any material to produce a high quality, precise cut for your parts.
Most of the other popular cutting methods, like laser cutting, plasma cutting or flame cutting use heat, and explosive gases for the cutting process. The high temperatures generated by these methods produce sparks, slag, and heat deformation that requires additional effort to clean and prepare the parts for the next manufacturing process. Customers of precision waterjet cutting services and waterjet cut products include those in the food and beverage industries, industrial equipment manufacturing, metal fabrication, stainless steel fabrication, aluminum fabrication, aerospace, and automotive industries.
C&A Group offers waterjet cutting services in Lethbridge for the following material:

Why Choose Waterjet Cutting?
Waterjet cutting is a versatile and precise cutting process that can be used for almost any material you need cut in any thickness up to 8” thick! Some of the benefits of choosing waterjet cutting for the production of your parts are:
Waterjet cutting is a very precise and clean cutting process. Typical part tolerances range from between 0.003” – 0.005” on thinner materials. Thicker materials (> 1”) can have tolerances ranging from 0.005” – 0.100”. The waterjet machine has many settings that can be adjusted to optimize the finish and accuracy of the cut such as speed, kerf, and pierce locations. The cutting speed and kerf adjustments are the most important variables to adjust and can be customized to give you the finish an accuracy necessary for specific geometry or features on a part.
