Whereas traditional abrasive waterjets have diameters down to 0.38 mm, micro abrasive waterjets are even finer. Typical micro abrasive waterjets are 0.3 mm and 0.2 mm. Our ongoing development will soon result in even smaller sizes.
The micro abrasive waterjet is effective also in combined materials that have disparate properties, such as carbon fibre reinforced epoxy with titanium inlays.
Even if the jet velocity is high, the force of the jet is low. Consequently, thin sections down to 0.1 mm can be cut without damaging the material
The jet cuts omnidirectionally while the fixturing solutions reorient the workpiece. The movement of the jet and the workpiece is synchronized, allowing highly complex geometries and shell structrures to be created.
Depending on the part material and size, tolerances can come down to ±0.01 mm. The technology can accomplish surface roughness values below 1,6 µm (Ra). For hard materials, roughness values can be below 0.8 µm (Ra).
The micro abrasive waterjet is a non-thermal cutting process and does not change the material. Surfaces produced will be free from adverse mechanical and thermal effects. Also no subsequent processing is required.
