Because composites are not homogenous materials and are reinforced for greater strength, cutting composites are always considered to be a tough work. As a non-contact cold cutting process, waterjet does not produce heat-affected zones, or leave rough edges and burrs. High pressure waterjet can cut the composites in a fast speed. The abrasives added in the cutting also have grinding function which will make the cutting surface smoother, cleaner and more accurate. Therefore, waterjet is the best choice for composite cutting.
Advantages of Cutting Composites with Waterjet:
Create complex shapes using composites with precision water jet cutting.NO Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) which is ideal for composites and more.Ideal for cutting up to 8"(20 cm) of composites materials depending on density of product.
