Material and hardware are actually just the tip of the iceberg. Along with our superior products, we offer a variety of services available from our industry expert staff. Atlantic stainless offers waterjet cutting, plasma cutting, saw cutting, shearing, and polishing among other services. Below we dive into some services we offer and how it can benefit you.

Waterjet Cutting
A waterjet cutter is a tool that is able to slice metal and other materials using a jet of water at high velocity and pressure, or a mixture of water and an abrasive substance. The process mirrors water erosion found in nature, albeit at a much more accelerated pace. It is one of the fastest growing precision machine techniques today, as it enables a vast range of industries to benefit from significant efficiency gains and to achieve high productivity. It’s also extremely cost effective and environmentally sustainable.

Waterjet is a process where high pressure water is utilized along with other material to make a fine, detailed cut. It is on the more expensive end, and should be used only when great precision is required. But it is a particularly good application for stainless when close tolerances are required.

Plasma Cutting
Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through electrically conductive materials by means of an accelerated jet of hot plasma. At Atlantic Stainless we offer High Definition Plasma cutting, allowing tighter tolerances and a better finished product. Plasma cutting technology is a rapidly growing alternative for many different jobs and applications. Following are some compelling reasons why:

  • Cutting Speed
  • Piercing Speed
  • Cut Quality
  • Versatility
  • Safety
  • Cutting Costs

Saw Cutting
Saw cutting is a very popular added service. At Atlantic Stainless we can cut your round bar or pipe up to 16″ round. Our automatic bandsaws can cut thousands of pieces to standard tolerances, giving you uniform pieces and consistency. We also cut all other bar products including channels, beams and other structural. We also do cutting of tubing and pipe.

Shearing
Shearing is a metal fabricating process where sheet or plate is cut by a specialized metal-cutting shear. At Atlantic Stainless, we shear up to 3/8″ stainless steel and up to 13 foot long. While a less precise process, shearing is extremely popular for metal fabricators and those using stainless steel in their products.

Polishing
Stainless steel polishing is a critical process for manufacturers and architectural applications. It creates a uniform and consistent surface finish. There are a wide variety of polishing options available, from a standard polish to a non-directional mirror finish. Atlantic Stainless offers in-house polishing on most material. Polished stainless steel is growing in popularity and has an ever-increasing product base.
