Precision Water Jet Cutting of Copper Channel for the Military Industry

When the United States military approached Olympic EDM & Waterjet Inc. about using its waterjet expertise to cut out a copper channel for a military application, we knew we had the right tools and human ingenuity to complete the job meticulously and time-efficiently. Following our customer-supplied CAD file, we got about straight to work.

Using a Mitsubishi precision waterjet, we applied its high-psi capabilities to cut the 4’ x 8’ sheets of copper supplied to us. Soon enough, we’d begun cutting them to overall part specifications of 1/16” in thickness, 4” in length, and 4” in width. Such was our accuracy that we achieved tightest tolerances of ±.005”. After the one month’s stipulated time to complete the assignment, we finished the 200 copper channels required by the military. When our client found our work to be excellent in terms of its punctuality and proficiency, we knew we’d performed our part for Uncle Sam.
