Just Add Water

Mechanical Engineering student Connor Gigone watches sheet metal parts for the Cal Poly Racing Team's Formula Car being cut on a new waterjet cutter in the Mustang '60 Machine Shop during quarter break. A gift from an anonymous donor, the Flow Mach 2 Waterjet can cut virtually any material up to seven inches thick with a stream of water under 55,000 PSI. “Formula car has a huge need for sheet metal parts and this new waterjet is ideal for us because now we can cut everything in one place on campus,” said Gigone. “No question it will be one of the most popular pieces of equipment in the shop.”

The Cal Poly College of Engineering understands there has been an enormous amount of turmoil and transition due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As we continue offering support to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, we also continue providing critical updates as well as college highlights. Ours is a college full of creative and bright engineers and staff. For more information on COVID-19 visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
