After installing a Jet Edge system at its metal processing and distribution centre, Jacquet Southeast is now offering large-format waterjet cutting services to the southeastern region of the US.

Jacquet Southeast is capable of processing materials up to 21ft x 13ft on its Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry waterjet cutting machine.

The company also offers plasma cutting services and carries 19 different grades of stainless steel and nickel-alloy plates in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses.

A subsidiary of Jacquet Mid-Atlantic of Pottstown and Jacquet Metals of Lyon, Saint Priest, France, Jacquet Southeast serves North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

It is one of five Jacquet metal service centres in the US.

Jacquet Southeast specialises in supplying and processing stainless steel and nickel alloys for a wide variety of industries, including power generation, chemical processing, wastewater treatment, aviation and aerospace, textiles and nuclear applications.

With its waterjet and plasma cutting capabilities, the company can offer standard shape cutting of rings or discs as well as intricate parts from customer drawings.

Jacquet’s Charlotte metal processing and distribution centre opened in 2007, but Jacquet has been serving the southeast through its Mid-Atlantic facility for several years, according to Ryan Hendrix, manager/owner of Jacquet Southeast.

Jacquet decided to open a metal processing facility in Charlotte to meet the region’s growing demand and to provide same- or next-day services to its southeastern customers.

‘There are not a lot of companies stocking and processing stainless plate in the southeast, so we are uniquely geographically located,’ said Hendrix.

Hendrix explained that he decided to install a Jet Edge waterjet system in Charlotte based on Jacquet’s experience with its Jet Edge equipment at its other US service centres.

‘Many of our customers find that they can save money by having us waterjet pieces as opposed to other cutting methods, as it greatly reduces the amount of machining they have to do to the part once they receive it,’ said Hendrix.

To meet customer needs for large-format cutting, Jacquet equipped its Jet Edge waterjet table with two Jet Edge Permalign II abrasive jet cutting heads and a 100HP intensifier pump to increase productivity.

The company also added an optional mirroring package, which makes it possible to cut large parts twice as fast, independent programmable Z carriages, programmable height sensing, a remote pendant, large-capacity bulk abrasive hopper, submerged cutting package, a closed-loop water filtration system and a garnet removal system.

Jacquet’s Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry is capable of maintaining +/-0.001in linear positional accuracy (over 12in) and +/-0.001in repeatability (bi-directional).
