Cutting copper can be difficult for some CNC machines but not Waterjet cutting. With MRC Industries, cutting intricate shapes and small holes is trouble-free.
One of the most popular applications for waterjet cutting copper is Industrial copper busbars. Busbars are used in many applications including battery storage, power distribution, furnaces, and even the Monash FSAE cars we sponsor.
