We often get requests for cutting glass with chamfered edges. This can be solved by 5-axis functionality or as in this case with a high-frequency spindle. First we cut the contour and then we grind the chamfer edge. This is made in one set-up, were the HF spindle is attached at a fixed offset to the cutting head. This is a part of our extensive option program.
We are happy to announce Lasea as our new sales partner in Switzerland. Lasea is a well-known supplier in the watch & jewelry industry with an extensive customer network . Our micro abrasive technology will be a good complement to their femtosecond lasers, as we are serving different needs on the market.
We look forward to a successful cooperation!
Our technicians continues to push the limit for what is possible to cut with our Finecut machine. Today they cut a tube in 28 mm thick rubber, wall thickness only 1,6 mm! Rubber is a soft material that easily distorts by any instability in the jet dynamics. Extraordinary precision and a highly parallel jet stream is required to maintain constant wall thickness through the hole tube.
With our micro abrasive waterjet, we can make precision shims with complicated geometry with fine features of any shape. No material distortion by heat is limiting the feature size. Picture shows steel with layer thickness of 0,05 mm.
Our Finecut machine has a 5 axis functionality as an option, which can be used both for taper compensation and angled cutting. Pictures shows a small turbine with twisted blades.
2 dl of water and 10 gram abrasive is what is consumed per minute with our smallest nozzle FAW200, only 200 µm in diameter. For high-precision non-thermal cutting.
2019-05-08 Engineering ceramics and abrasive waterjet =
Highly engineered materials like Zirconia is hard to machine with conventional methods as it is hard, resistant to wear and brittle. Micro abrasive waterjet is one of the few machining methods that can cut Zirconia in hard condition to any shape. The picture shows a heart in zirconia cut with Finecut WMC500II.
2019-04-08 New order in!
We are happy to announce that we have just received our first order for a Finecut machine to Asia. Our Global journey continues!
2019-04-05 What is the benefit of non-thermal cutting?
The waterjet process does not generate any heat, this is an important advantage for the machining of advanced metal alloys. The material properties of these are often a result of a material structure in combination with heat treatment. Micro abrasive waterjet does not use any heat for its material removal and will not change the material properties. That is why the process is suitable for cutting of sensitive alloys like Nitinol, aerospace grade Titanium, magnesium alloys and nickel-based alloys.

First cut after installation at our agent at HS&S, Santa Clara, USA!
2019-03-12 Micro Abrasive waterjet – also for thicker materials!
Many people think that micro abrasive waterjet machines can cut only thinner materials but this is not correct! The Finecut WMC500II can be equipped with larger nozzle/orifice and as a result you get more cutting power, still with good control of the process. The picture shows 40 mm thick titanium (Ti6Al4V), the thinnest segment is only 0,1 mm wide – from top to bottom!
2018-11-08 World Drone Racing with help from Finepart!
Congratulations to Oscar Nilsson who won the junior World Drone Racing Champion in China last weekend. Sweden conquered a second place in the team competition. We were happy to contribute to the success by making precision cutting of the carbon fiber composite parts in the drone.
