Cutting Composites with Waterjet
Today composites come in many forms including carbon fiber reinforce plastic; fiberglass; and composite foams, Kevlar, carbon fiber, glass fiber, non-woven materials, composite resins, etc. An abrasive waterjet’s supersonic erosion can cut nearly any material, and the low contact force eliminates the need for bulky tooling. Modern materials such as carbon fiber composites like GRP (GFRP), CFRP (CRP), and carbon fiber-reinforced carbon (C/C) can be cut without any dust or gas being emitted. The finely focused waterjet beam, cuts reliably and precisely in any direction to incredible detail. Composites made up of a variety of very different materials such as metal and rubber can be cut in one operation. Waterjet cutting will rarely cause cracking, fraying or delamination.
