Waterjet Cutting Graphite Epoxy Composite
Graphite Epoxy Composite is a stiff material that is difficult to cut. It is often used in the aerospace industry for parts because of its high strength to weight ratio. It is quite stiff for its weight. Definitive Solutions & Technologies (DS&T) is able to handle many cutting projects other companies cannot. Below you will see how easily we cut the composite.
This video shows a piece of graphite epoxy composite being waterjet cut by Definitive Solutions & Technologies. The composite is having test pieces (test coupons) cut out of it to be sent back to our client. The client will then use the test coupons for testing the composite’s physical properties. Graphite epoxy composite has a very high strength to weight ratio therefore is commonly used in the aerospace industry.
