Waterjet & Laser Cutting Services in Portland, Oregon

When you need a part that is cut to tight tolerances, or you don’t want any heat generated with the cut, the waterjet is an excellent choice. Depending on the material, Rubber Resource can hold tolerances of 0.0078” with the waterjet.


Waterjet cutting is also a cost-effective choice for smaller runs where a die could add unneeded costs to a one-and-done job.

Waterjet cutting is also an advantage when the thickness of the material makes die-cutting difficult to hold part tolerances.


Rubber Resource can make rapid first article parts using a CO2 laser controlled by a CNC system.

Our Laser gives us a competitive advantage over our competition by allowing us to make fast prototypes and first articles to get our customers the products they need to make complex decisions in the development process.
