WATER JET CUTTING MATERIALS
Less tool wear and almost any shape
Despite the increased use for composite materials in many industries there are few machine tools that are really suitable for processing these materials with one particular challenge being tool wear. Water jet cutting technology is widely considered to be the best alternative for composite processing thanks to less tool wear and the option to cut almost any shape.
The term composite comprises a wide range of materials with different characteristics: Kevlar, carbon fibre, glass fibre, non-woven materials, composite resins, etc therefore the most efficient cutting process depends on the the material – Abrasive Water Jet cutting (AWJ), Fine Abrasive Water Jet cutting (FAWJ) or Pure Water Jet cutting (PWJ).
