An Advanced Cutting Method
Microwaterjet® was specifically designed to machine two-dimensional, high-precision, and micro parts with multiple advantages over competing methods. Our process offers a substantially smaller kerf width (0.08mm for pure water cutting, 0.2mm for abrasive cutting) compared to traditional waterjet machines (0.8 mm) that are primarily used to cut rough large shapes and/or thicker materials.
In addition, the microwaterjet® utilizes smaller nozzles and a finer garnet than conventional machines. This allows for a 10-fold reduction in the jet cutting diameter, resulting in much finer accuracy from the very first production run.
Microwaterjet® is competitive against EDM and laser cutting as microwaterjet® cuts without Heat Affected Zones (HAZ), which presents opportunities to cut materials with little to no biocompatibility issues or deburring. It is possible to stack cut on the microwaterjet® although some tapering may occur depending on the material/thickness and speed of the cut.
