Machine with abrasive waterjet and control the depth of cut. For the right parts, this fledgling process may offer a compelling alternative.
By adding a five-axis waterjet/milling machine, its biggest autoclave and a more expansive lay-up room, Royal Engineered Composites is positioning itself to win larger-scale aerospace work it sees on the horizon.
Waterjet cutting has carved a legitimate niche in material fabrication. This article looks at the process with an eye toward how waterjet can work for your shop.
