“Micro Waterjet provided critical length tolerances for our leaf spring part, far exceeding conventional industry machining with part tolerances improving from 0.127mm for standard machining to 0.025mm provided by Micro Waterjet. The timeliness, the precision, the preservation of the material’s properties by frictionless cold-cutting, and the minimal tooling costs make this a really good process for start-ups.”
