Big Blue Saw has been closely involved with the robotic combat community for many years now. We can make custom parts from your designs using CNC waterjet or laser cutting. We can cut aluminum, carbon steel, chrome-moly, polycarbonate, and much more. Take a look at just two of the many robots we've made parts for.

How thick can you go with UHMW? I have a bunch of 1/2" - 3/4 UHMW pieces that I am looking into getting done. Taper wouldn't really be a problem.

We can definitely do 3/4" thick UHMW on the waterjet. Send us the design.

I just received some antweight parts that you guys cut and everything's perfect. It all slotted together like lego and is just waiting for me to attack it with a tap and die set.

Thanks for the awesome work.

Nice. Are you welding or bolting it together?

I had the weapon cut for my 12 pounder Scurrie a while back. It was spot-on and I would use the service again. Just my $.02
