Air jet machining

With more than twenty five years of manufacturing for the aerospace, aviation and commercial industries nationwide, Waterjet Natural Cutting, Inc. is committed to excellent service in waterjet cutting, cnc machining and parts manufacturing. Whatever your industry, whether cutting tiles, hard metals or softer materials, we will create the cuts and parts you need.

Cutting that was one thought impossible to accomplish through then available methods, can now be achieved with relative ease. Any part can be designed, modified, or upgraded easily and then immediately cut, providing a tremendous advantage to research and development type projects.

Through the hard work of our dedicated staff, we've earned a reputation for innovative thinking, versatility, and adaptation of design. We execute even the most complicated of designs through the use of cnc machining and waterjet cutting. We quote the costs of your projects up front  - there are no hidden charges. We are just one click away from you and to get more info on waterjet cutting, click on Get info and " Contact Us " We are located in Chatsworth, CA (northern Los Angeles). Our facility is located near Van Nuys, Canoga Park, North Hollywood, Sun Valley, Northridge, and San Fernando. We serve customers throughout California and beyond.

An air knife is a tool used to blow off liquid or debris from products as they travel on conveyors. Air knives are normally used in manufacturing or as the first step in a recursive recycling process to separate lighter or smaller particles from other components for use in later or subsequent steps, post manufacturing parts drying and conveyor cleaning, part of component cleaning. The knife consists of a high-intensity, uniform sheet of laminar airflow sometimes known as streamline flow.

An industrial air knife is a pressurized air plenum containing a series of holes or continuous slots through which pressurized air exits in a laminar flow pattern. The exit air velocity then creates an impact air velocity onto the surface of whatever object the air is directed. This impact air velocity can range from a gentle breeze to greater than Mach 0.6 (40,000 ft/min) to alter the surface of a product without mechanical contact.

Air knives remove liquids, control the thickness of liquids, dry the liquid coatings, remove foreign particles, cool product surfaces or create a hold down force to assist in the mechanical bonding of materials to the surface. Electrical currents from anti-static bars can also be injected into the exit air knife stream to neutralize the static electricity charge on some surfaces.
