Machining Composites With Abrasive Waterjet

Cutting composite material is a perfect application for abrasive waterjets. A precision waterjet with a taper compensating head will machine 1/4" thick carbon fiber as fast as 180 inches/minute at 60,000 psi with taper of less than 0.001" per side. And 13/16" thick G10 can be machined as fast as 40 inches/minute at 60,000 psi with the same precision.

While speed and...
