NitroCision : Cut Anything, Including TNT

March 28th, 2005 | Filed under: Fabrication Tech, Future, Materials, Technology | No Comments »

NitroJetâ„¢, originally created to cut radioactive materials, is now available through NitroCisionâ„¢. Although similar water jets (ex. Flow Int.), this method involves directing cold liquid nitrogen at high pressures which evaporates upon contact, leaving the slice without any secondary residue. Even unstable materials like TNT can be cut with CNC precision without having it blow up in your face. Alternatively, the same non-residual method could be used to remove surface materials by switching the liquid nitrogen to high temperatures and low pressures.
