Thanks to the MultiCam
® 3000 Series WaterJet,
North Texas Pressure Vessels Inc. of Mineral
Wells, Texas, is a growing one-stop shop that does
all its own machining in house. Owners Keith
Boyd and Scotty Whitsett started NTPV in 2006
and bought their waterjet in 2010 to make steel and
aluminum parts for oil and gas pressure vessels.

NTPV uses the waterjet to cut tube sheets for
filter sets, swing-bolt closure sets, lugs and flow
measurement parts. The factory also keeps it busy
cutting parts for its patent-pending SandShark that
removes sand from oil wells. NTPV sold over 100
of these new products to one company this year.

Keith likes the convenience of the computer monitor
being right by the machine and appreciates the
personal touch MultiCam sales, service and support
personnel provide. The NTPV waterjet operator
got up to speed very quickly after installation
and runs the machine about 58 hours a week.

“We’re spoiled since we added the MultiCam WaterJet,”
Keith said. “It’s a very good product that
produces parts requiring little cleanup. Because it’s
so precise and creates such a clean edge, we don’t
want to use a torch anymore.”

The Multicam Waterjet allows NTPV to make all parts in
its factory without sending work out
anymore. This has helped NTPV stand out as more
than just an ordinary fab shop.

“Our waterjet paid for itself by saving time,” Keith
said. “It’s opened doors for us so we’re cutting
more than just machine parts for our company.”

Due to the CNC machine’s versatility, NTPV has
expanded into the aircraft industry and is doing
artistic work for sign companies.

By making better-looking, higher-quality parts, the
business has become more competitive. As a result,
NTPV is adding 10,000 square feet to its current
20,000-square-foot facility. When the remodel
is complete, Keith and Scotty will host an open
house and give away waterjet samples to show off
its fine cut quality.

“Our MultiCam WaterJet has taken NTPV to the
next level,” Keith said. “Now we can do it all.”
