WATER JET CUTTERS
Enhance the capabilities of 2-D Abrasive Water Jet (AWJ) process with the addition of 5-axis capability. This is particularly useful in sectors such as Nuclear, Oil & Gas, Aerospace and Power Generation and is accomplished with the provision of the BevelJet™ 60 Cutting tool on all Premium and Grand models.
The introduction of BevelJet technology has enabled one of our UK customers to rationalise their processes while improving dimensional quality. Previously they profiled their plates by thermal process, mill machining back that material, then machining the weld preparation. Today, the job is completed in a single hit using a water jet cutter, reducing lead time by 3 working days and eliminating any errors associated with multiple set-up.
In most basic form, the 5-axis head can be easily programmed from a 2-D cad file to create a variety of bevels on the plate edge. Such features are commonly required to provide weld preparations. Full 5-axis articulation allows these bevels to follow contours on the profile without the need for solid models or any dedicated 5-axis programming techniques.
The Grand provides a wide range of design options. Popular in specialised job shops and as workstation in industry production lines, each water jet cutter is tailored to fit the customer process requirements, easily adopted for multi-job processing and unmanned operations.
Robust, Heavy Duty
The Grand offers the largest tables sizes with a robust heavy-duty design to manage large and odd size materials. Thanks to a worldwide patented guide system all water jet cutting machines have the same tolerance, independent of size.
