WATER JET CUTTING MACHINES
High precision cutting tool for fine parts and micro components
The Micro Water Jet machine is specially designed to cut at high precision with extreme tolerances. The Micro cuts fine details with very little material loss.
Narrow cuts, extreme tolerances and abrasive cutting advantages
The Fine Abrasive Waterjet (FAWJ) process is a refinement of the already proven Abrasive WaterJet (AWJ) process, whereby the advantages are applied to Micro applications.
It’s use in the micro segment, where wall thicknesses in part profiles can be as little as 0.2mm benefits from the cold process where mechanical properties of the material are not affected by heat and there is no thermal distortion as is found with the laser process.
Compliments EDM and Micro Laser processes with the following advantages:
Fast set up with little or no fixturing requirement
Virtually any material, no need for electrical conductivity such as with EDM
No heat effected zone, as with Laser
Wide thickness range of materials
Low material erosion
The technology allows cutting with low material erosion, leaving practically no burr and no heat-effected zones. Thanks to the option to cut thin layers of material, pliant structures can be created. This way, material failure due to structural fatigue can be eliminated.
Fast Production Times
Products such as rubber extrusion dies that require tolerances no greater than 10µm can be produced much faster in materials up to 12mm thick in tool steel at a magnitude of 10x faster.
