We use a water jet cutter to ensure precise cutting of test samples. The major advantage of water jet cutting is that it is a cold process, meaning that there is no thermal effect on the material (e.g. no deformation, colour or structural changes).
Water jet cutting offers many advantages over laser or plasma cutting:
Extremely high accuracy
High surface quality of the cut
Larger plate thicknesses are possible
No cutting burrs, meaning no reworking is required
