MC Machinery Systems Inc. now offers three waterjets—the Classica, a two-axis unit; the Suprema, a four-axis with tilt head; and the Evolution, a five-axis unit.
The Classica features 2-D CAD/CAM software with nesting capabilities and an accuracy and repeatability of ± 0.004 in.
Suprema and Evolution include software that features intelligent tapering control, which automatically corrects tapering of the cut. The CNC tilts the waterjets ± 7 degrees, allowing for increased cutting speeds in a contour. Both can achieve accuracy and repeatability of ± 0.001 in.
Evolution's 3-D system uses a self-positioning rotation point device on the material to maintain automatically a constant distance from the nozzle to the workpiece. This protects the nozzle through a working range from flat work to a contoured interpolation of ± 69 degrees.
The waterjets are available with one or two heads and feature a stainless steel table for simplified maintenance and clean cutting conditions. Tables are available in many sizes.
