Cutting system combines a pump rated at 94,000 pis (648 MPa), with Dynamic Waterjet XD, a high-precision flat stock and 3-D waterjet cutting technology. This combination is said to improve part cycle time and accuracy two to four times over standard non-Dynamic systems. The patented dynamic XD allows cutting bevels and 3-D parts using small wrist with up to 60º of articulation in any direction.
Precision machining workhorse: From prototypes to production runs in sizes up to 4' x 8'. The Model 80X JetMachining Center cuts complex flat parts and is ideal for cutting larger or multiple part projects, out of materials including metal, plastic, glass, ceramic and composites directly from a CAD drawing or .DXF file. JetMachining is ideal for short-run part production, just-in-time manufacturing, tooling and prototype part development.
Qualities 1 through 5 use abrasive and water to cut the material. A quality of 1 will cut through the material; however it will leave a rough edge quality. This is acceptable if the edge will not be seen or if it is going to be welded. A quality of 2 will leave a fair edge and is good enough for most applications. A quality of 3 will leave a good edge and this our default setting. A quality of 4 is excellent and is great for machine parts or parts requiring a polished edge. A quality of 5 is superior to all.
