Abrasive
Jet Machining
with MicroBlasting

Micro-abrasive blasting is powerful enough to drill holes in ceramic substrates, yet gentle enough to cut slots in fragile silicon and glass wafers. MicroBlasting is “shockless,” generating neither heat nor vibration.

How to create features of a specific depth

A single pass of the focused abrasive stream from a MicroBlaster can uniformly remove 5 µin (0.127 microns) or less of material depending on the substrate, abrasive, and blast parameters. Given this level of precise and controllable erosion, you simply need to know how to fine-tune the process to suit your application.

5 variables for abrasive jet machining

Using MicroBlasting to cut or etch a part (a process also known as controlled erosion) is a great method to machine many precision parts, from drilling holes in ceramic substrates to cutting slots in fragile silicon and glass wafers. MicroBlasting is “shockless,” generating neither heat nor vibration, meaning microcracks are less likely to form and damage part integrity.

Etching channels to create an air bearing or hydrodynamic seal

Bearings inside turbine engines operate at high speeds in a harsh environment where traditional rolling contact or static bearings would not survive. To improve reliability and fuel efficiency specifically on jet engines, shallow channels are incorporated into the design in which air flows rather than traditional lubricants. The technical challenge is how to create these channels.
