Waterjet system for high-precision machining introduced

August 11, 2009

MC Machinery Systems Inc. has introduced the DX series waterjet machine. Its 700 series CNC delivers advanced programming capabilities for high-precision machining. The unit is controlled on a 15-in., waterproof screen, with improved graphics and NC design to simplify operation.

The 22-in. machine base features I-beam construction, and the stainless steel work tank is completely isolated from the machine frame. The pump control is completely incorporated into the NC cabinet. New crash protection works in the X, Y, and Z axes.

An auto grease system provides lubrication for the 1.57-in. NSK ball screws. In the new work table design, slates are located by slots, but height is set by a solid indicated flat bar. The redesigned intelligent taper control (ITC) has a focus tube length of 2.99 in. The new human-machine interface (HMI) allows for easier use of the control graphics, the company states.
