5 Axis WaterJet Cutting
Maudlin & Son offers the very latest in 5 Axis WaterJet Cutting technology. Our 5-axis Mach 4 system provides the tightest waterjet cutting tolerances available. This is made possible by Dynamic cutting technology. Combined with HyperPressure Technology we can virtually eliminate stream lag and taper. Our 5 Axis WaterJet Cutting Dynamic cutting heads and HyperPressure Technology also reduces cycle times, consumes less abrasive and saves you money.
Dynamic XD faster and more accurate
With our Dynamic Waterjet XD technology from Flow we can cut 2-4 times faster than conventional water jet cutting. The XD head allows for advanced beveling up to 60 degress for added versatility and easy cutting of complex parts in 3D. Dynamic Waterjet is able to cut a maximum speed with out sacrificing cut quality. This is made possible with advanced SmartSteam Technology.
SmartStream technology is a series of mathematical models that automatically tilt the water cutting head to the side as needed in order to eliminate taper. As a result higher cut quality is achieved, possibly eliminating further secondary operations, saving our customer valuable time and money.
Higher Pressure = Productivity
HyperPressure Technology delivers significant productivity gains over traditional ultrahigh-pressure systems. HyperPressure powered waterjets can cut up to 30-50% faster than traditional water jet pumps. This is made possible because the HyperPressure pump can deliver continuous 87,000psi, nearly 45% more pressure than traditional water jet technology. As pressure goes up stream velocity increases, delivering greater cutting power density. Increasing water pressure means the stream is moving faster and reduces in diameter, resulting in 30-50% less abrasive being used. Although less abrasive is entering into the stream, each particle is now carrying more momentum and cutting power. In summary, HyperPressure powered machines cut faster, lower expensive abrasive cost, all while increasing production. It’s a win-win for our customers.
Whatever your business – automotive, aerospace, stone and tile, tool and die, gaskets, fabricator or job shop – we can cut metal, stone, plastics, composites, glass, ceramics, rubber and more. Zip through materials up to 8 inches thick with no heat affected zone and superior edge quality.
