Alliance Automation built a robotic waterjet system for test cutting and is now capable of testing all types of materials in house.
With an increase demand in trying to cut different types of materials with waterjet, Alliance decided to build a system specific for trying new materials. The system is now fully functional and ready to cut all types of materials.
“Fiberglass and carbon fiber has been something that was a gray area. With varying thicknesses and density, it was always difficult to gauge how effective waterjet was on these materials.” Says Steven Cranston. “Now, customers can send us their parts and we can test it quickly”.

Alliance Automation successfully builds a specialized sound dampening enclosure to house two abrasive waterjet cutting robots.
It is no secret how loud abrasive waterjet cutting can be, sometimes exceeding a sound level of 110db. Alliance Automation was presented a challenge to build a cell that can reduce this level to below 83db while using two robots to cut small metal parts with abrasive waterjet. After careful design and planning, this system was successful at meeting the requirements. This system can cut parts quickly, while the operator can stand just feet away to load/unload parts safely, protected by a special enclosure and turntable.

After being featured in the Manufacturing Engineering magazine earlier this year, Alliance Automation’s wall mounted robotic waterjet trimming system was featured in an article in the annual publication of the 2014 Motorized Vehicle Manufacturing Yearbook. The publication is a supplement to Manufacturing Engineering and part of the SME, Society of Manufacturing Engineers. The article describes the benefits of the waterjet system as well as the Yaskawa Motoman robots and the Jet Edge intensifier pump.
