3d Modelling Software
AB&F's capabilities include

  • Water Jetting
  • Solid modeling
  • CNC milling
  • Virtual Hydroforming
  • Development, prototyping, and limited-run jobs
  • secure file uploading/downloading for controlled documents

Our Flow Water Jet cuts complicated workpieces in minutes without the problematic remelt layers created by other cutting techniques. It cuts at +/- 0.002", and cuts complicated geometries 15 times faster than traditional techniques, translating to significant cost savings.

Both customers and vendors can download and/or upload controlled documents via our secure file sharing system. We comply with NIST SP 800-171 and DFAR 252.204-7012.

Our metalworking machines cut, shear, bend, form, swage, nip, trim, mill, machine, turn, roll, punch, ream, sand, deburr, and clean sheet metal. These include

  • 2 CNC mills
  • 1 manual mill
  • 1 lathe
  • 4 band sanders
  • 3 wheel buffers
  • 8 presses
  • 2 tube benders
  • 3 drill presses
  • 6 shears
  • 5 punches
  • 4 rollers
  • 3 band saws
  • 1 cut-off wheel
  • 3 multi-function stations
  • 4 Tumblers, and
  • miscellaneous metal working machines
Water Jet Head Blasting

We perform the equivalent of hydroforming without hydroforming machines, to form heat shields and tube segments.

We run 3D modeling software, and accept solid models in most formats. With it, we prepare flat patterns for the waterjet and other machines. We also use it to create custom dies, reverse engineer parts, and create production & inspection drawings.

We specialize in development, prototyping, custom, one-off, and limited-run jobs.
