Westinghouse Water Jet Machining Center Available for All of Your Large and Small Manufacturing Needs

To the naked eye, it may look like an ordinary swimming pool, but the Westinghouse Electric Company Nuclear Components Manufacturing (NCM) facility in Newington, New Hampshire is home to the largest state-of-the-art precision water jet machining center in the northeastern United States.


560” x 160” water jet table is the largest in northeast United States. It sits under two 25-ton cranes.

The center caters to the energy, oil and gas, aerospace and heavy manufacturing industries, as well as smaller locally owned businesses that need to have plate cutting work completed.

From metal to granite, glass to fiberglass and even wood, the water jet machining center is capable of cutting an array of products up to eight inches thick, from the size of a fingernail up to the size of a swimming pool.

The machine holds tight tolerances and can cut complex features and angles in virtually any material in a fraction of the time required by traditional cutting and machining methods.  This advancement in capabilities expands water jet services to the global market while supporting manufacturing in the northeastern United States.

The addition of water jet machining capacity at NCM is an important differentiator.   It enables the site to vertically integrate plate processing and complete work in significantly reduced durations, resulting in savings that can be passed along to customers in any and all industries.  To learn more about the water jet functionality click here.
