Mitsubishi's MW3 entry-level waterjet machine for production environments features solid base construction and a cantilever head design.
The 720 CNC delivers advanced programming capabilities. The unit is controlled on a 15-in. waterproof screen. Menu and help functions guide the operator through programming and workpiece setup.
The machine comes standard with a high-pressure S-50 KMT pump, which provides 60,000 PSI of water traveling up to Mach 2 with 1.09 GPM of water consumption through a maximum orifice size of 0.013 in. The ratio of reciprocating hydraulic piston to ceramic water piston is 20-to-1, pushing the water into an accumulator that maintains a smooth, even flow to the cutting nozzle.
