The Best Waterjet on the Market

What makes the FlexJet the best waterjet on the market?

The FlexJet design allows for higher acceleration and deceleration rates that make it faster, more precise, and more rigid. The unique way that the Flexjet accelerates and decelerates makes it the highest producing waterjet on the market by utilizing dynamic motion that cannot be replicated. The FlexJet is made of heavy-duty materials that have all been approved through the finite element method. The heavy-duty materials make this waterjet stable, accurate, and reliable, which will extend the life of the machine.

Another key advantage is the one-of-a-kind 5-axis head. Customers can use any length Nozzle Body or Nozzle Tube, creating a fully customized experience without limitations. The conventional focal point 5 axis heads can not do that. All the Rotary Modes are available at all times and are activated through M-codes or a Block Editor. Utilizing the 5-Axis + machine speed + programming + nozzles + machine design, you can achieve up to 7x faster cutting.  You will see in the video the accuracy and stability, notice the velocity vector speed never varies, and that’s what look ahead in the software does. FlexJet can seamlessly pull 1G from location to location with rapids up to 1,800 IPM using dynamic movements with no sacrifice to quality or accuracy.

Auto Stand-Off – This is currently defined to be surface stand-off and not to be confused with vector stand-off in 5-axis mode. The current auto stand-off is based on a changing surface and will adjust vertically based on the angle of the “A” Axis, so there is five (5) axis taken into account during the calculations, but this is not the same as the tool vector stand-off. There is the ability to do the vector stand-off change while the machine is running manually with buttons on the screen.

Z-Reader Probe – The Z-Reader is a device for mapping the location of the surface. It can be controlled manually & programmatically. The option is NOT active while cutting & is retracted out of harm’s way. It can be triggered to verify the surface at every pierce before the cutting process starts, or it could be used to drive surface mapping of the whole part before cutting starts. It begins with initialization or zeroing of the device to the surface at the beginning of a program and then accumulates or tracks the difference from that zeroing effort.

Automatic Edge Finder – The edge finder is or can be utilized manually (Jogging Method & Screen Buttons), programmatically (M & G codes), or fully automatic routine (dedicated program). This option sets offsets & program rotation to match the orientation & location on the cutting table.

AC Unit Installed on Electrical Cabinet – The unit is mounted on the cabinet’s High Power (480v) side. It is close to the location where the drives are mounted. This option keeps the cabinet temperature stable and allows heat dissipation faster. The servo drives for all axes are the most significant contributors to heat inside the electrical cabinet.

5-Axis Renishaw CalibrationThe calibration unit is a Renishaw model APCA45 with a modified spherical stylus. The device has a retractable cover and air purge to clear debris & dust during the activation process. It mounts to a swing arm controlled by a pneumatic rotary, so it is out of the way during regular operation and swings into the calibration position for calibration only.
