Fisher Barton is equipped with the latest 10 kW Fiber vertical cutting system renowned for its efficiency and performance. It provides a powerful and concentrated beam that can effortlessly cut through a variety of materials. The vertical configuration of the machine allows for efficient material handling and maximizes the use of space. With its advanced capabilities, the Laser delivers excellent cut quality, smooth edges, and minimal heat-affected zones, making it ideal for producing intricate components, complex geometries, and precise contours. Designed for industrial applications, Fisher Barton can provide exceptional laser-cutting capabilities that meet the demands of various industries.
Water Jet Cutting
Water jetting is a versatile and effective cutting process that utilizes a high-pressure stream of water to cut through a wide range of materials. This process involves pressurizing water to extremely high levels and directing it through a nozzle with precision. Water jetting can be performed using pure water for softer materials or by adding abrasive particles to the stream for harder materials like metals or ceramics. The high-pressure water stream generated by specialized equipment can cut through thick materials with ease, creating smooth and precise cuts without generating heat-affected zones. Water jetting offers several advantages, including the ability to cut complex shapes, intricate designs, and materials of varying thicknesses. It is a versatile cutting method used in industries such as manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, and architecture, where precision, versatility, and non-thermal cutting processes are desired.

Milling is a machining process that involves the use of rotating cutting tools to remove material from a workpiece, resulting in the creation of various shapes and features. Fisher Barton can mill both small-scale and large-scale components up to a diameter of 98.4 inches (or approximately 2.5 meters), which represents a significant capability for machining large-scale components. This size range allows for the production of sizable and complex parts, such as turbine blades, large gears, aerospace structures, and industrial equipment. Milling machines equipped to handle such diameters employ robust and precise mechanisms to ensure stability, accuracy, and efficient material removal. With the ability to work on such large dimensions, milling up to 98.4 inches in diameter caters to industries requiring the fabrication of substantial components that demand close tolerances and intricate geometries.
