WaterJet Micro Cutting

Cutting a wide range of materials, including heat
sensitive ones, with a cutting accuracy of +/-0.01 mm
and a positioning accuracy of +/-0.0025 mm, the
e-dro micro waterjet cutting process occurs by mixing
very fine abrasives and accelerated water at around
800 m/s - 3 times the speed of sound.
Low cutting forces with no thermal impact, make it
possible to cut the most intricate contours, assuring
burrs on the cutting edge are minimal and a high
surface quality equivalent to N7 or Ra 1.6 μm.
Thanks to a waterjet whose diameter is smaller than
0.30 mm, we can provide high cutting speeds and
high quality for sharp and narrow outlines. More
competitive than classic waterjet cutting, EDM or laser;
the micro waterjet cuts plastics, ceramics and
conductive materials with ease.
