Contract cutting and profiling

RCS can cut and shape a wide variety of materials including glass,steel, granite, wood, aluminium, plastic, perspex, foam, carbon fibre, Kevlar and composite materials.

Traditionally, composites were cut by diamond saw; however this process is limited to cutting straight lines - Waterjet cutting can produce complex and intricate shapes.

The process also allows for extremely flexible quantity requirements to be met—from rapid prototyping for development work to full volume production. Regardless of quantity requirements, Waterjet technology cost-effectively produces components to a consistent quality standard.

Water jet cutting produces no inherent material changes so, unlike laser cutting, there is no work-hardening of edges. Edges are left perfectly clean, without the need for further machining or labour-intensive finishing.

Our technical support team can advise on the most appropriate process for specific requirements and, if required, we will work with our established network of strategic partners to source materials.


Facilities and solutions

RCS Ltd offers a comprehensive and unique subcontract Waterjet cutting and CAD design service. A waterjet is often seen as an excellent alternative to expensive laser cutting.

Waterjet cutting technology can cut a wide range of materials, including Glass, Marble, Metals, Carbon Fibre Composites, Foam, Rubber and Plastics; in fact virtually any material can be cut using the Abrasive Waterjet process.

Our waterjet can hold tolerances as low as 0.05mm and operates at 55,000 psi coupled with the latest Softec software it allows us to provide accurate costings and lead times.

What is a Water jet?

A waterjet utilizes a high-pressure stream of water to erode a narrow line in the stock material. To cut a wider range of materials from tool steel to titanium to foam, a granular (typically garnet) abrasive is added to the waterjet, increasing the cutting power.
Because the abrasive is added at the nozzle, it is simple to switch between water-only and abrasive waterjet cutting. This flexibility greatly enhances the versatility of a waterjet machine, as it can easily switch from cutting ½" (1.27cm) foam gaskets to 4" (10.16cm) titanium brackets.
