As with optics machining, AWC specializes in unique application of waterjet machining for composites and ceramics production support. Through implementation of specialized programming techniques, using precisely tuned waterjet processes, and in some cases novel tooling, AWC is able to machine-trim composite hardware with incredibly high accuracy at affordable prices. In many cases abrasive waterjet machining has been a technology enabler to allow certain composite products to be cost effective and allow these products to go to market.

Thermally Conductive Composite Fins for Advanced Heat Exchanger Technology w/ 1000's of Fins Made Possible through Precision Abrasive Waterjet Machining
Waterjet Machined Alumina Ceramic w/ Graphite Epoxy Laminate.
Note that this process is modified to provide taperless cutting and dimensional tolerances to +/-.005" with no delamination. Material System is for a vehicle up-armor application.
