By using a hair-thin, low pressure water jet as a wave guide for an ablation laser, many of the problems associated with dry laser cutting such as focussing, cracking, burrs, heat affected zone and wide, tapering kerfs, can be significantly reduced or totally eliminated. This paper looks at the advantages water can make to the laser cutting process. The wet laser can cut, groove, drill and shape a very wide range of materials from aluminium to alumina, from single crystal diamond (SCD) to super-alloys. It rarely seems to matter, whether the material is hard or soft, thermally shock sensitive or not, electrically conducting or not. With respect to PCD and PcBN tool making, 5 axis machines fitted with a wet laser are now becoming available for production of precision, near net shape tool geometries ready for final finish grinding - if indeed finish grinding is actually required.
