Mainstream Indexing Fixture for Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

(click on thumbnail to enlarge)

Mainstream Waterjet's expertise at designing custom fixturing, combined with our ability to fabricate it in-house, allows us to waterjet cut large, heavy, or complex parts with great precision and short lead times. Our team designed this custom fixture that allowed us to rigidly mount the part and fixture inside the waterjet tank to accurately cut the desired features through the outside diameter of the mounted titanium ring.

Using our OMAX 80160, we waterjet cut the fixture's components from A-36 hot rolled steel and 304 stainless steel materials. Fabricated to their finish dimensions, the components were then welded together to complete the fixture. The ability of this fixture to orient this large work piece in the right position for cutting, while eliminating all unwanted work piece movement, allowed us to manufacture this titanium ring to within the ±.010" tolerances, and within the tight turnaround time required by our customer in the aerospace industry.
