WATER JET CUTTER NEWS
The Water Jet Sweden Micro Machines
In 2017 the demand for the FixeX machine systems increased significantly with production hall 3 in the Water Jet Sweden factory filled with frames and equipment for new FiveX machines built for customers in China, USA and Europe.
FiveX machines are commonly used in high tech industry sectors like aerospace, aircraft, liquid/gas and power industry all over the world.
Water Jet Sweden FiveX machines are advanced and bespoke abrasive cutting tools designed for specific 3D cutting requirements.
– "As the water jet market evolves the demand for this type of cutting solutions has increased, which also is one of the fields of our expertise," says Lennart Svensson, CEO at Water Jet Sweden.
The FixeX machine system is built with Water Jet Sweden’s most advanced technology enabling a 0-91 degree cutting angle. Exceptionally stable design enable an extra-long Z-movement up to 1500 mm, keeping extraordinary repetition and positioning accuracy, while conducting high precision free form abrasive waterjet cutting in full 3D.
An Intelligent Probe Interface, integrated with a large library of measurement cycles, simplifies job preparation and programming. Full size wall design and automated stainless-steel back and frontal protection keep operators safe while conducting free form 3D cutting in space.
Water Jet Sweden is well-known for producing advanced waterjet machines of high quality based on specific customer requirements. However, in recent years it has invested heavily in R&D to develop lower priced complete machine systems suitable for basic cutting needs at an entry level price point. One of those is the H model, a mass market complete machine system for all types of machining in 2D with premium components. Still providing high quality and long life performance, this standard machine is popular in prototype and spare parts workshops, educational centres and for internal production. It is also used for industrial production processes and contract cutting.
In recent years, several machine manufacturers have launched machines under the Micro category but on closer inspection it’s clear the definition of Micro is actually very different between manufacturers. For many, it is simply a smaller machine whereas for Water Jet Sweden a Micro machine is primarily designed for very high precision manufacture of micro components. At the same time, there are other options if you need to process small items or make narrow cuts.
