Rayotek Scientific Inc’s New Water Jet Cutting System-Higher Precision, Faster Turn-Around

Rayotek Scientific Inc.’s new, custom configured OMAX® JetMachining® Center (water jet cutting system) is now installed, tested and fully operational.

The new water jet cutting system was purchased specifically to meet customer’s ongoing needs for high-precision, quick turn-around shaping of sapphire, fused quartz, fused silica, glass and ceramics.The 4-axis system will provide the ability to manufacture complex very small to medium shapes quickly, with high precision and minimal waste. The system completely replaces many traditional grinding technologies which are far more time-consuming and costly.

Rayotek, in partnership with OMAX®, configured the water jet cutting system with maximum structural rigidity, customized software and state of the art precision optical positioning technology. The machine was designed to optimize accuracy in shaping hard, brittle materials and to provide repeatable accuracy for the cutting of patterned products. The new water jet cutting system can also be used for rapid fabrication of specialized tooling and molds to meet quick turnaround demands.

“As customer requirements have evolved and Rayotek’s business has expanded, the need for faster tool making, rapid prototyping and manufacturing flexibility has become a necessity. Over the past 12 months Rayotek has partnered with OMAX to configure the water jet cutting system to ensure the precise shaping of our specialty materials - sapphire, fused quartz, fused silica, ceramic and glass.” said Bill Raggio, Rayotek’s President and CTO. Rayotek plans to use the water jet cutting system as a resource center for its own internal purposes, as well as offering high precision cutting services to its customers.
