The part pictured is one of many parts Micro Waterjet has cut for use in a proprietary positioning system. As the customer stated, the Micro Waterjet process was chosen over other technologies because it provided:

  1. Excellent squareness of kerf on thick parts which is much better than photo etching — this is key for well-aligned laminations
  2. Wire-EDM-like tolerances without EDM cost and slowness, particularly with lots of internal penetration cuts
  3. No material damage like with laser cutting.

The part is made out of Stainless Steel and is 1.125” x 3.375” x 0.039” (28.575mm x 85.275mm x 1 mm) with the thinnest portion being 0.0118” (0.3mm). Critical tolerance is + 0.02mm – 0.00mm.
