Anderson Dahlen is able to combine precision water jet and laser metal cutting to produce highly complex forms for custom designs with fast cutting time. Our water jet and laser cutting also gives the customer low priced quotes.

Laser Cutting

Anderson Dahlen provides exceptional metal cutting with two of their Cincinnati Laser CL-707’s. Our machine permits us to have accurate cutting and quality edges compared to other traditional cutting methods. The laser has the ability to cut numerous types of pieces but is not limited to tubes, plates, and sheets. Another key attribute to laser cutting is that they don’t experience wear and that normal metal cutting machines would undergo during the cutting process. The CNC laser allows Anderson Dahlen to cut complex forms for custom designs without the need for any special tooling that might be required for traditional cutting equipment.

  • Utilizing both Oxygen and Nitrogen gases for cutting

Waterjet

One of the most highly perceived advantages of waterjet cutting is that it adds almost zero heat to the material during the cutting process. This advantage is important for industries such as the aerospace industry. Not adding heat reduces exceptionally unwanted effects, allowing steel or other alloys to be cut without interfering and distorting its properties. In addition with adding no heat, the water jet can also cut intercut designs. Combined with technical software such as CAD, three dimensional designs can be cut that most other traditional cutting processes cannot do. Its accurate cutting techniques reduces scrap material produced that drive down prices of producing projects for customers. With the waterjet, Anderson Dahlen has two cranes overhead that can carry a combined weight of 4 tons of material to and from the waterjet. The waterjet creates a taper of less than 1 degree with most cuts, but for specific specification for certain projects; it can be reduced or eliminated entirely by slowing down the cut process or tilting the jet.

CNC Water Jet

  • (1) Flow International WMC4010 Water-jet cutting 157″ x 392″ (4m x 10m) 87,000psi
  • (1) Flow International M4C 4030 XD Water-jet cutting 157″ x 118″ (3m x 4m)
  • 87,000 psi
  • Abrasive waterjet cutting can cut near-net, or final shapes (including holes) out of any material and thickness, without creating a heat affected zone (hazard).
  • Standard tolerances are +/- .004″ for thicknesses up to 14″. Jet can tilt up to 45 degrees.
