The micro abrasive waterjet produces fine surface finish. Reducing the speed results in a better surface finish and less taper on the cut edges. Any 3-axis machines can produce taper-free cuts. This is made through allowing the jet to erode material for a longer duration while following the contour, meaning that speeds must be reduced significantly.
By adding 5 axis capability to adjust the approach angle of the jet, the taper in the cut can be compensated and speeds will not need to be reduced more than to meet an adequate surface quality. This means that cutting speeds can be increased by up to 150%. This means a significantly higher throughput in the machine. Return of investment will correspondingly come with advantages in both quality and productivity.
The Finecut machine is made for precision work and has a positional accuracy of ±2,5 µm. Parts can be cut with a tolerance of ±10 µm. With Finecut WMC500 5X, type ABX you can cut highly accurate parts with double speed.
