Few things could be under more pressure than a 90,000 psi industrial waterjet cutting machine and a NASCAR® team racing to get ready for the next green flag. That is why Modern Marvel's production crew travelled to MWR's shop in Cornelius, N.C., to shoot "Under Pressure," an episode exploring all things done under pressure.
During the episode, Modern Marvels explores the science behind creating an extreme ultra-high pressure waterjet that can cut precise parts from virtually any material, and explains how MWR uses its Jet Edge X-Stream water jet cutting machine to cut more than 1,000 parts for each of its racecars. The episode features interviews with Michael Wheeler, Jet Edge's R&D engineer; Nick Hughes, MWR's technical director; and Jeremy Vanderleest, MWR's waterjet operator.
MWR builds about 56 cars per year, including the #55 Aaron's Dream Machine Toyota Camry driven by Michael Waltrip and Mark Martin, the #56 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota Camry driven by Martin Truex Jr., and the #15 5-hour ENERGY Toyota Camry driven by Clint Bowyer.
