Waterjet Cutting
At BWRC, we provide excellent waterjet cutting services. Waterjet cutting allows another dimension outside the capabilities of laser cutting. With our 60,000 psi Waterjet, BWRC can cut virtually any material up to 6.0" thk. Regardless of material, the waterjet allows for precise cuts with no kerf. There is no heat-affected zone associated with waterjet cutting.

  • Materials: Aluminum, Armor Plate, Plastic, Rubber, Granite, Glass
  • Waterjet Capabilities: 72" x 144" Cutting Area, Precision Tolerances to +/- .005, Cuts Up to 8" Thick, Files Stored for Repeat Jobs
  • Industries Served: Industrial & Municipal Applications
  • Waterjet Cutting Advantages: Allows for Processing of Materials for Machined and Fabricated Products, Cuts Virtually Any Material Up to 6.0" thk, Precise Cuts with No Kerf, No Heat-Affected Zone

Laser Cutting
We have recently added a laser cutting machine! It is used as an alternative to the waterjet, as it cuts different material than the waterjet, and is both faster and cleaner. Both machines have a use, as they cut different materials!

Powder Coating
BWRC has our own Powder Coating facility located at 714 Mount Pleasant Road Spartanburg, SC 29307. There we use Akzo Nobel Powder Coatings, DuPont Powder Coatings, and Tiger Drylac Powder Coatings for a wide variety of industrial, commercial, and residential applications. Any color is available. You can learn more about the powder coating process below or call William Garrett at 864-579-0440 to setup an appointment.

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin." It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

There are several advantages of powder coating over conventional liquid coatings:

  • Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC).
  • Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging.
  • Powder coating overspray can be recycled and thus it is possible to achieve nearly 100% use of the coating.
  • Powder coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings.
  • Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.
  • A wide range of specialty effects is easily accomplished, which would be impossible to achieve with other coating processes.

The powder coating process involves three basic steps:

  • Part preparation or the pre-treatment
  • The powder application
  • Curing

CNC Milling Center
Barry Wright Race Cars also has a state-of-the-art CNC Milling Center in-house. It is a 3 axis machine on a 40" x 20" table. We mainly use the CNC Milling Center for a variety of racing-related jobs, but we also do custom work as well!
