We supply a large range of customers from DIY to large corporations such as Denel.

Our Tools

In 2000 we purchased our first AbrasiveWaterjet Profiling machine and in 2005 we purchased a 4 Kw Laser Machine.

This machine has a tube cutting attachment which enables us to profile tubing up to 400mm dia x 3,5 mtr long.

In 2008 we purchased our second Waterjet Machine with the Tilt a Jet feature which enables us to produce taper free components on request.

The Waterjet machines use Garnet grit and high pressure water as a cutting medium and therefore there is no heat to affect the physical properties of the material.

We have a 100 ton press brake with a 3 mtr bed which enables us to do straight forward bending.
