Plungers and Waterjet Components
Serving our Customers for Decades
GLE Precision has developed new technologies and processes in the waterjet segment. This has allowed our products to perform better and last longer than our competitors. Waterjet components and accessories are manufactured by GLE-Precision to the customers specifications.
Due to our reputation, we are the supplier many companies (such as NLB, Omax, and Flow International) trust as they pursue the next technologies and research and development projects. This demand has led to waterjet being the largest of all GLE business segments.
GLE produces several components of waterjet machines. A few of these components including plugers, bushings, nozzles and poppets. Materials used in manufacturing of these items includes cermics, nickel carbides and steels. Different materials are used for each varying application. We would be happy to assist you in choosing the correct material for your project!
Due to the accuracy required by waterjet machines, the components must be made with high precision.
These components include the nozzles, the poppets that create the flow, and plungers that are used for pressurizing the system. The surface finish is also critical in these components. A high surface finish will increase the wear life of parts, allowing for lower replacement costs and better performance. GLE Precision is the chosen supplier of multiple waterjet manufacturers for these parts and more. Our decades of experience in tight tolerances and high surface finishes have helped us build relationships and remain on the cutting edge of waterjet technology.
We can achieve a .4RA (.01016 micron) or better surface finish on products such as ceramic plungers and carbide bushings. Does your application involve abrasive materials? The surface finish can improve the wear life and performance of your product.
