Wiley Metal Fabricating Inc., a custom fabricator in Marion, Ind., has added a waterjet cutter and large press brake to its fabricating line.
The Flow Mach 3 4020b waterjet cutter operates at 50 HP with a pump rated to 60,000 PSI and a 13-ft. by 6-ft. by 6-in. cutting area. The waterjet cutter also features a dynamic cutting head.
The Xpert press brake from Bystronic offers very high position and repetition accuracy, the company reports. Programmed offline with Radan, the 275-ton machine features Wila tooling and a bed length of 161 in. The fabricator also uses Striker System software to program and nest turrets and SolidWorks® 3-D modeling for engineering work.
