This ultra-efficient water-jet cutter can blast through slabs of metal with ease. Engineers at GE Global Research in Niskayuna, N.Y., are investigating the computer-guided advanced milling tool for use in several industries. Here, the water jet is being tested to cut wind turbine parts from a solid aluminum ingot.

Firing an abrasive mixture of garnet dust and plain water at a pressure of 60,000 pounds per square inch, the water-jet cutter could dramatically reduce manufacturing time at GE plants.
