Many of the waterjet machining products covered in this month’s Modern Equipment Review spotlight feature advances that make them more economical solutions. A dual-tank waterjet from Techni, for instance, enables continuous operation because the operator can unload and load one tank while the other is cutting, just like a pallet changer in a machining center. Other cost-saving features are even more fundamental, such as a hydraulic intensifier pump available from Jet Edge that regulates its power draw for use in labs, schools and small shops.

  • The Laser’s Role In Micromachining Metals

    A new laser technology combines the high machining accuracy and throughput required for precision, industrial micromachining work.

  • Why Not Start With Waterjet?

    In titanium, significant savings and process efficiency can result from the simple fact that abrasive waterjet cutting leaves the remaining stock intact.

  • The Promise of Waterjet Technology for Micromachining

    The potential benefits of using waterjet technology to produce parts or part features smaller than 300 microns are compelling. Developers and researchers are getting close to breaking the barriers that stand in the way of micromachining in the 150- to 200-micron range and below.
