The flying bridge style design features independent steel tank design with 8 mm thick bottom, ball screw transmission system with linear guideways and auto lubrication, highly engineered table design and accuracy of .003".
The gantry style machines feature independent frame and tank design, 20" I-beam construction with 10 mm thick bottom, ball screw or rack and pinion drive, highly engineered tables, double way and ball screw covers and accuracy of .001".
"These machines are built with high quality components and include features not found in competitive machines," said a company spokesperson. "Optional features include multiple cutting heads, sludge removal systems, water filtration systems, dual table/dual bridge designs and a variety of pump options from KMT Waterjet Systems.
"Waterjets can cut virtually any material with very clean cut edges and no heat affected zone. Waterjet technology is becoming more commonly used in applications from aerospace to construction and is well suited to job shops that see a wide range of materials."
