Cutting Services

Fitz-Thors Manufacturing provides precision cutting services on a variety of materials utilizing our in house water jet and plasma CNC cut tables. Any sized order from a single part up to high volume production runs can be accommodated by the high precision systems. Our engineering and graphics teams add value by providing recommendations on designs and helping to optimize them to achieve a superior solution. Often times these cutting services are combined with secondary CNC machining, welding services, or finishing/powder coating.

 

Water jet Capabilities:

  • Materials cut (some materials stocked) – Acetal (Delrin), UHMW, acrylic, mild steel, stainless steel, hardened alloys, titanium, aluminum, copper, ceramics, wood, glass and others
  • Capacity /Material size up to 60” x 120” x 6” thick
  • 55,000 psi cutting pressure
  • CNC controlled system with nesting software to optimize yield and reduce cut times
  • High accuracy – tolerances within 0.005” can be achieved
  • Precision Edge – taper less than 0.005” on material up to 1”
  • Heat sensitive material can be cut without affecting material properties

Plasma Cutting Capabilities:

  • Materials cut (some materials stocked) – steel up to 1-1/2” thick, aluminum up to ½” thick
  • Capacity / Material size up to 52” x 108”
  • Hypertherm plasma cutting head and control system
  • CNC controlled system with nesting software to optimize yield and reduce cut times
  • Z – Axis height control for thickness compensation
  • Cutting speeds up to 10-times faster than water jet
