Your accurate solution

– with Finecut™ Waterjet Machining Center

The Finecut™ WMC 500 II is a new generation of precision machine tool using waterjet technology. The machine has a conceptual design that differs from traditional waterjet cutting tables in order to optimize accuracy. In the Finecut™ machine the work is clamped to the machine work table, being mechanically coupled to the motion system. The catcher tank that dissipates the jet energy after cutting is separated from the work table structure in rubber suspension in order to minimize the influence of vibration. The Finecut machines feature our own Finesoft HMI user interface and high-end control & servo system granting simplicity in operation without compromising ultimate precision, reliability and versatility.

 

 

 

Finecut in action

The Finecut Fine Abrasive Waterjet cutting system is the proprietary cutting system of Finepart. It was developed to accompany the Finecut Waterjet Machnining Center and together they bring the waterjet technology to a whole new level of precision.

The micro abrasive waterjet process is a particle erosion based, non-thermal cutting process. This process can cut virtually all materials, produces an excellent surface finish and does not change the material properties. Moreover, the process can pierce starting holes in the part and cut complex countours with minute features having radii down 0.1 mm.

 

 

 

 

 

To produce narrow tolerance parts, the micro abrasive waterjet cutting system must also be accompanied by a very precise motion capability that accurately reproduces the programmed geometry. The Finecut machine have been designed to optimise the part precision to a new level.

Three types of cutting systems

Depending on material, part complexity and level of miniaturization, our precision cutting can be made with any of our cutting systems that are available in 3 different categories; micro/fine abrasive waterjet, conventional abrasive waterjet, pure waterjet. A range of sizes from 0.2 mm to 0.76 mm is available, whereas the larger jet facilitates a greater cutting power.

Flexible fixturing

3D part geometry can be cut with assisting additional servo axes that manipulates the part synchronously to the cutting motion in order to provide access for the cutting jet. A variety of innovative fixturing’s solutions can be adopted depending on the part requirements. It is also easy to make your own fixtures, using the machines palletized fixturing solutions. For repeat orders, this solution enables you to quickly set up and produce.

Advanced option portfolio

The Finecut can be equipped with several options like measuring probe, 5-axis cutting head, turning axis, drilling unit, vision system, and more. We also develop new options that serves the customer’s needs for efficient production. All options are retrofittable to existing machines.
