FlexJet Waterjet- The Solution in Every Industry

If you can imagine it, the FlexJet will cut it.

 Who uses a waterjet? Our FlexJet is the most versatile waterjet on the market. Our waterjet cutting machine will manufacture parts for industries from foam and rubber to aerospace. The FlexJet waterjet will cut with abrasive and water-only making it the right choice for every material. Below is a list of several examples of industries where FlexJet waterjet has shown success.

Automotive

The FlexJet is a non-hazardous way to cut heavy materials at fast speeds while creating smooth lines. The water-only system has been used in the automotive industry to cut plastics, rubber, and soft materials. The FlexJet is a solution in the automotive industry for speed, precision, and performance. The 5-axis head makes it possible to manufacture one-of-a-kind automotive parts. 

Aerospace

Technology is a critical factor in the aerospace industry, and FlexJet is leading in technology innovation. This industry requires precision and innovative solutions because there is no room for a margin of error. The waterjet produces turbines, jet engines, custom control panels, military components, and more.

Medical

One of the main advantages of using abrasive waterjets in the medical industry is increased production and precision. The medical industry has continuously changing needs to cut various materials and the FlexJet has no limitations on what it can cut, making it the perfect choice.

Food Processing 

WaterJet cutting has a crucial advantage in sanitation for cutting food, increasing production, and decreasing the amount of waste. The FlexJet can cut meats, baked goods, frozen food, produce, and any other food in a clean, precise cut. 

Paper Production 

Paper can be cut in a thin line without damage to the edges due to the fast and precise cut of a water-only waterjet. The water-only machine is the ideal choice for cutting and making slits in all kinds of paper, including thick cardboard.

Stone

The abrasive FlexJet is capable of cutting through natural and manufactured stone. The patent-pending 5-Axis design allows our Flexjet to carve intricate details into materials such as granite. Cutting stone using a waterjet increases productivity, reduces stress on the rock, and virtually no chipping on the edge of the stone, which allows it to keep its natural shape.

Textiles, Foam, and Rubber

Our water-only waterjet is the ideal machine for cutting textiles, foam, and rubber with the option for multiple cutting heads, high speeds, precision, and max production. The FlexJet is capable of cutting textiles, foam & rubber up to 8” in thickness.

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.
