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 55100 JetMachining Center cuts complex flat parts 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.
