Water Jet Cutting

Think of it, and we can cut it! Our water jet machine can provide cutting solutions to all types of industries within the Wellington region and throughout New Zealand.

The capabilities of our water jet machine and the team at Metal Construction who work with it are endless. Cutting with our water jet machine is extremely accurate, quick, versatile and can produce complex and elaborate profiles, shapes, and designs from a diverse range of materials including (but not limited to) aluminium, copper, brass, nickel alloys, rubber, stainless steel, glass, foam, stone, laminates, composites, Autex, plastics and carbon fibre (see our materials page).  Our advanced nesting software produces super tight nests so waste material is almost eliminated. Common material jobs are nested and cut together, which increases efficiency, reduces change over time and keeps costs down.

Whether you are doing a production run, a bit of DYI or needing a custom designed item our water jet machine will provide the solution.

What Our Clients Say

Amanda Rossiter, Business Owner

Metal Construction have been providing a water jet cutting service for me for the past couple of years.  I have been so impressed with them!  The team are extremely friendly and approachable, they provide a really fast turn-around, usually within a day or two and the cutting has been fantastic. From time to time, we have needed help with custom designs which Matt has absolutely nailed.
