Alphajet waterjet cutting tool from Water Jet Sweden. Water Jet Sweden launches Alphajet - the next generation of taper angle control and perpendicular waterjet cutting. Alphajet is mechatronics based on compact design with a fixed TCP point. Out of the ordinary cutting result are achieved with carefully selected machine elements and small precise movements at an angular accuracy within ± 0.05mm.

When processing expensive materials, it’s important to minimise waste. Using waterjet technology to cut out holes instead of drilling means the residual material can be stored, shaped and reused delivering not just better value but also new product opportunities. Here we look at how waterjet technology was used to produce Inconel cylinders, and save material in the process.

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.

Sending satellites into orbit is today a large and global industry. In Sweden you find the world leading supplier of Payload Adapters and Separation Systems for commercial launch vehicles. They manufacture systems compatible with all commercial satellite buses in the world today. Market leadership means constant investigation of ways to develop the rocket science even further. This time it led to new ways of processing their thick carbon fiber materials.

WJS UK engineers came to the rescue in manufacturing 4 new exhaust flanges for a classic Honda road racing bike. The Honda VFR750R, frame designation 'RC30', was a fully faired solo seat only racing motorcycle created for homologation purposes for the World Superbike Championship by Honda Racing Corporation (HRC); only 3000 were ever made, making parts difficult and sometimes impossible to obtain.

Each FiveX machine system is a unique solution based on specific customer requirements. Built on the same platform but bespoke in width, length, height and set of features. When challenged we even redefine the machine specification to find the best machine solution for the task given. Product development driven by customers’ demands and market needs.

February, 2018

In 2017 the demand for the FixeX machine systems has increased significantly. At the moment production hall 3 is filled with frames and equipment for new FiveX machines being built for customers in China, USA and Europa.

To cut narrow incisions in hard materials with high precision requires a specially developed waterjet cutting process. FAWJ stands for Fine Abrasive Water Jet (micro waterjet, finecut), and is a unique and world-class cutting process launched back in 2008 by Water Jet Sweden. Since then, the technique has been applied to a specially developed precision machinery, designed to manufacture micro-components. Now Water Jet Sweden has broadened the possibilities and launched The FAWJ Micro Head Package for the ordinary machine models. It is designed for customers who wish to cut fine parts with narrow incisions and high precision, without the need for the most extreme micro part tolerances.

October, 2017

Beveljet 60 is a 5-axis cutting head made by Water Jet Sweden primarily designed for sheet material cutting, shaping parts with a 0-60 degree cutting angle. But with the programmable z-axis the cutting head can be used for much more advanced cutting jobs.

October, 2017

High Tech Industries need to make 3D parts in hardened metals, special alloys and composite materials with accurate, high precision cuts.

March, 2017

All Water Jet Sweden machines are built for long life and high performance. A profitable investment for many years of competive advantage. These design principles also includes the new multipurpose, entry level T-model.
