LearnX: Harnessing Nature's Greatest Force- Intro to the Water Jet

Monday, October 7 at 4:10pm to 5:30pm

What happens when a stream of water laced with a little abrasive breaks the sound barrier? An awesome (and precise) cutting force! Believe it or not, a ¼” thick plate of steel is no match for a jet of water traveling at over Mach1. Being able to control that kind of power is sure to give you a thrill (and open up a ton of design possibilities). While our lasers can’t cut metal, our brand new WaterJet can cut through metal, stone, glass, cell phones -- just about anything. It is sure to make cutting some precisely designed custom parts a snap!
