The Premium and Grand models of water jet cutting machines available from Water Jet Sweden are most commonly used in the Abrasive Water Jet (AWJ) application where the user needs the flexibility to cut a wide range of dissimilar parts from the same parent material.
Automatic repositioning of the cutting heads in CNC mode, allows for the best material utilization and productivity. This is made possible by the use of Fanuc linear motors on each cutting carriage with positional feedback from high resolution Heidenhain linear absolute positioning scales. It is common that the cutting program can utilize heads 1 & 2 to cut a pair of large parts, then bring into use heads 1,2,3 & 4 (up to 6 are possible) to process 4 parts simultaneously on the same material sheet.
All machines can be equipped with a range of sensors and remote communications to allow lights out operation, a benefit enjoyed by many of our customers.
Water Jet Sweden design provides for highest integrity over the longest lifetime available in the industry. This is achieved by understanding the challenges associated with waterjet cutting during our 35 year experience and optimizing our design and manufacture to address these potential issues:
Manage the thermal influence with free standing stainless steel water tank and patented X-Beam guide system
Extra wide linear bearings to resist torsion and provide a stable platform
Heavy duty steel frame that is stress relieved after fabrication and then precision machined
Completely enclosed bellow protection for all dynamic motion systems and motion parts, simplifying maintenance and prolonging the lifetime of the machine
Linear drives in the X-Axis have about twice the speed of a ballscrew, with greater positioning accuracy and zero backlash when changing direction, giving an extraordinary cutting performance
Of course, these design principles go across the full range of machines from Water Jet Sweden
