3Diligent's CNC Water Jetting Service is an effective option for creating high integrity parts. This process doesn't create a heat-affected zones, sustaining the intrinsic material properties of the work piece.
This process of spraying abrasive material in a focused jet of water rapidly removes material. Generally suited for 2-Dimensional cutting, waterjetting doesn't require special tooling and generally doesn't require post-processing. Non-abrasive water jetting can achieve widths as small as 0.003".
Aluminum alloys, stainless steel, carbon steel, nickel alloys, titanium
Surface Finish is Stock. Cuts leave surface roughness of ~6.3 µm Ra
Cuts as thin as .03"
