Service Detail from Maudlin & Son Manufacturing Co., Inc.


Why Choose Maudlin for your water cutting needs?

Maudlin & Son offers the very latest in water jet cutting technology. Our 5 axis Mach 4 system provides the tightest water jet cutting tolerances available. This is made possible by Dynamic cutting technology. Combined with HyperPressure technology we can virtually eliminate stream lag and taper. Dynamic cutting heads and HyperPressure Technology also reduces cycle times, consumes less abrasive, and saves you money.

Dynamic XD faster and more accurate

With our Dynamic Water jet XD technology from Flow we can cut 2-4 times faster than conventional water jet cutting. The XD head allows for advanced beveling up to 60 degress for added versatility and easy cutting of complex parts in 3D.

Dynamic Water jet is able to cut a maximum speed with out sacrificing cut quality. This is made possible with advanced SmartSteam Technology. SmartStream technology is a series of mathematical models that automatically tilt the water cutting head to the side as needed in order to eliminate taper. As a result higher cut quality is achieved, possibly eliminating further secondary operations, saving our customer valuable time and money.

Higher Pressure = Productivity

HyperPressure Technology delivers significant productivity gains over traditional ultrahigh-pressure systems. HyperPressure powered water jets can cut up to 30-50% faster than traditional water jet pumps. This is made possible because the HyperPressure pump can deliver continuous 87,000psi, nearly 45% more pressure than traditional water jet technology. As pressure goes up stream velocity increases, delivering greater cutting power density. Increasing water pressure means the stream is moving faster and reduces in diameter, resulting in 30-50% less abrasive being used. Although less abrasive is entering into the stream, each particle is now carrying more momentum and cutting power.

In summary, HyperPressure powered machines cut faster, lower expensive abrasive cost, all while increasing production. It's a win win for our customers.


Whatever your business-automotive, aerospace, stone and tile, tool and die, gaskets, fabricator, or job shop - you can cut metal, stone, plastics, composites, glass, ceramics, rubber and more. Zip through materials up to 8 inches thick with no heat affected zone and superior edge quality.

With XD Dynamic Head Technology cutting tapers and counter sinking holes is no problem. Combine this with a satin smooth finish that we provide you eliminates the need for secondary operations.
