We stock a large variety of sheet and plate for your convienence.

A large assortment of carbon steel, stainless steel, extruded and cast aluminum always on hand. In addition to the “common” materials we also stock titanium, brass and copper in various alloys. Polycarbonate, acrylic and engineered plastic materials are also inventoried improving the turnaround time.

Material Processing Services

Abrasive Water Jet Cutting
  • Cutting area up to 8' x 13'
  • Multi-head production capability
  • Single prototype to large production runs are welcomed

Materials we commonly process with our Water Jet systems

  • » Mild Steels up to 10" thick
  • » Tool Steels up to 6" thick
  • » Aluminum up to 10" thick
  • » Stainless Steel up to 6" thick
  • » Acrylic up to 6" thick
  • » Titanium up to 6" thick
  • » Carbide up to 4" thick

Other commonly cut materials vinyl flooring, ceramic tile, Carpet Glass, Rubber, Composites

Water Only Jet Cutting
  • This process used when the water stream entrained abrasive is not required to cut materials
  • Is highly accurate as smaller nozzles maybe used for this process.
  • Generally allows cut materials to be processed free of abrasive residue for cleaner cuts

Materials commonly cut with our high pressure water only systems

  • » Thin wood and wood laminates
  • » Carpet and other common flooring materials including most vinyl flooring systems
  • » Felt sheet in a wide range of thicknesses and specifications
  • » Thin rubber sheet
  • » Various standard and ballistics fabric
  • » Thin plastic and plastic composites

From prototypes to large volume orders welcomed.

Laser Cutting
  • A common approach for accurately and efficiently cutting steel and aluminum sheet
  • Provides a high level of precision and the ability to produce intricate cuts in thin to medium thickness sheet materials

Materials commonly cut with our large format flat bed laser cutting system

  • » Steel sheet and plate to 1/2" thick
  • » Aluminum sheet and plate to 1/4" thick
  • » Stainless steel sheet to 1/8" thick
  • » Titanium to 1/8" thick

From small prototype runs to medium volume orders welcomed.

CNC High Definition Plasma Cutting

An excellent choice for economic precision cutting of medium to heavy steel plate up to 1" thick. This process lacks the extreme precision of water jet and laser cutting but can be more economical and faster representing an excellent value for parts requiring less accuracy and rougher edges.

Materials commonly processed with our High definition plasma system

  • » Steel including alloy steels
  • » Stainless steel most types
  • » Aluminum most alloys

From small prototype to medium volume runs.

CNC Gantry and Large Format Milling

Popular for large parts such as machining of tubing, large fixtures and assembly jigs etc. or any requirement for precision processing of parts up to 12' in length

Materials commonly processed with our CNC Large Format Milling systems

  • » Steel including alloy steels
  • » Aluminum of any almost any alloy
  • » Plastics and plastics composites
  • » Urethanes of various specification
  • » Stainless steel most types
  • » Phenolic and composites

From small prototype runs to medium volume orders welcomed.

CNC Routing
  • An excellent processing choice for nested based sheet or plate processing
  • Several large format systems in continual use all with unique capabilities

Materials commonly processed with our powerful CNC Routing systems

  • » Aluminum of almost any type from .020” -2” thick
  • » Wood and wood based products to 2" thick
  • » Plastics and plastic composites
  • » Carbon and Carbon fiber sheet and plate.
  • » Urethane of various specification
  • » Urethane foams of various specification
  • » Phenolic sheet and plate to 2" thick

From small prototype runs to high volume continual orders welcomed.

CNC Milling
  • Popular choice for small to medium size precision parts from a wide range of Metallic, engineered plastic and hybrid materials
  • Expert in 3, 4 and 5 axes machining

Materials commonly processed with our large variety of cnc milling systems

  • » Steel including alloy steels
  • » Stainless steel most types
  • » Aluminum most types
  • » Titanium most types
  • » Engineered plastic and composite materials

From prototype to large volume runs.

Mig Welding
  • A popular approach for a quality joining of like metal materials.
  • MIG Welding (metal inert gas) is considerered an efficient approach to welding both steel and aluminum and is common in the low to high volume welding realms.

Materials commonly welded with our various MIG or (GMAW) systems

  • » Carbon Steels and alloy steels
  • » Stainless Steel
  • » Aluminum
  • » Magnesium
  • » Nickel Silicon Bronze

From prototype to medium volume welding projects welcomed.

Tig Welding
  • A common approach for joining like metal materials.
  • TIG welding is considered a higher quality and more precsion welding method than MIG welding.
  • TIG welding is considerered when a stronger more refined and attactive weld is desired.
  • This process is a typically a lower volume procedure.

Materials commonly welded with our various TIG or (GTAW) systems

  • » Carbon Steels and alloy steels
  • » Stainless Steel
  • » Aluminum
  • » Magnesium

From prototype to medium volume welding projects welcomed.

Wire EDM
  • Extremely precise machining method for conductive materials.
  • A thin electrically charged wire follows a programmed path.
  • 4 Independently moving axes to create taper cuts as necessary
  • Accuracy up to +/- .0001"

Materials commonly processed with our Wire EDM systems

  • » Hardened steel
  • » Carbon steel
  • » Cobalt
  • » Tungsten
  • » Titanium
  • » Inconel
  • » Stainless steel
  • » Super alloys
  • » Conductive ceramics

This process is exceptional for fine/accurate features machined into hardened materials. From prototype to medium volume wire edm projects welcomed.
