BulkheadOur customer needed to implement design changes to this power transmission bulkhead but they did not have a blueprint or CAD file for the design. We reverse-engineered from the existing bulkhead on the left and made the modifications to produce the new part on the right. To save cost on the redesign, a sample bulkhead was cut from wood (center) to perform a ‘live-fit’ check prior to cutting the finished metallic component.

 

“Waterjet West always provides us with great service and a top notch product no matter how big or small the order or how ‘one-off’ the item may be. We have presented their staff with challenges that could only be met by having that face-to-face you get with a local vendor. The excellent quality of their staff, service, pricing and product keeps us coming back.”
