Scientists are deeply involved in exploring the frontier of micro-abrasive waterjet technology, that is, applying waterjet to part features that are smaller than 300 microns. Efforts are underway to further the development of this product. To push waterjet technology to greater capability in the micromachining arena, one scientist says research efforts must overcome barriers in three critical areas. For more about this topic, read “The Promise of Waterjet Technology for Micromachining."
