Cut a metal like aluminium in very small parts

  1. Mar 24, 2005 #1
    Does anyone know what tools are available to cut a metal like aluminium in very small parts and to join two parts together and still get a neat finish?

    In order of most probable best finish cut:
    - EDM (wire)
    - Waterjet
    - Laser

    As far as joining goes, that will be the trick. How would these parts be joined? Are you looking at a butt joint, etc...? That will make a difference.

    Most welding operations, if done carefully (with good surface preparation) can produce extremely neat join finishes.
