Scaling Down Waterjets to the Micro Level
Adapting abrasive waterjets for micromachining requires greatly reducing the size of the waterjet nozzles and mixing tubes that carry smaller garnet abrasives through the waterjet’s high-pressure cutting tool delivery system.
Lasers Drill Precision Holes Quickly
Short-pulse picosecond fiber lasers are making inroads, drilling small, precise holes for the medical and microelectronics industries.
Drilling Small, Deep Holes with Precision EDM
Today, there is no end in sight for precision machining applications like small holemaking for which EDM drilling, in combination with other processes, is being used.
