Precision measurement and machining enables world leading waterjet cutting machine
Calibration tool for high precision machinery
Finecut™ is leading the way in waterjet cutting technologies with amazing precision and surface quality and in almost any material.
Finecut™ is using a new technology to position the cutting head, which enables significantly better precision compared to traditional waterjet cutting machines. This is setting new standards in calibration as well. In order to solve this, the team behind Finecut™ worked with Microbas to develop and produce a dimensionally stable tool with accurate references covering the whole cutting area yet that is still user friendly for the service engineer to use.
The result is a 500x500, 50mm thick surface plate in diabase with 100 precision holes. The plate has a surface flatness of 5µm, angle tolerance of 4µm and the holes have a maximum deviation of 0.05mm. The accurately measured reference stone facilitates machine accuracy within 10 microns, making it possible to bring waterjet cutting to a new level.
