Schneider-Kreuznach has expanded its product range in the area of industrial optics to include customised pre-cutting services for various materials. A high-pressure water jet is used to cut glass, metal, plastic, foam, ceramics, stone and wood to size. This is done without heating the material, extremely precisely with an accuracy of 0.02mm, without causing deformation and according to specifications.
The maximum size for pre-cuts is 580 x 980mm. Free forms are also possible. Applications include glass for optical instruments, metals for precision mechanics, plastics for washers and mounts, special foam packaging and ceramics for heat conductors.
