WATER JET CUTTING MATERIALS
Fabricated wood materials, e.g. veneer and plywood
Processing of wood has become something of an established niche application for the water jet technology, and there are some application areas of specific interest. The wood materials most frequently used today are fabricated ones, like veneer and plywood. Fast setup time, narrow cuts, no splintering and easy free-form cutting are some of the documented benefits when applying water jet cutting for these materials.
Water jet technology has been used e.g. for the production of wooden jigsaw puzzles, table tennis rackets and wooden furniture – and there is a lot more to come.
