ACM Waterjet cutting machine

Direct-drive linear motors guarantee:

  • Better cutting behaviour and absolute repetition accuracy (without needing to back-up) of the cutting head compared to traditional mechanical transitions using spindle, pinion, rack and gears
  • Low maintenance as a result of the non-contact principle, combined with greatly reduced wear parts consumption
  • Wide range of cutting speed and jogging speed, adjustable from very low to very high
  • Fast response enables cutting speed to be rapidly changed

Description

The ACM waterjet cutting table comprises a precision-built steel construction embodying linear direct-drive motors on each of the two main axes. To achieve the required precision, the bridge and self-propelled carriage plate are powered by one direct-drive linear motor on each side. This results in a speed range from 1 to 30.000 mm/min.

The use of these components and construction enables the installation to achieve a repeatable positioning accuracy of +/- 25um. (at 20 °C) across the machine’s full range. The guideways and drives are suitably protected from water and abrasive through bellows and protective stainless steel plating.

 

Unmanned Production
Due to automatic control of the PJ high-pressure pump, abrasive feeders and the process parameters, permanent supervision during the cutting process is not required. Resato water jets are equipped with an automated stop function that trips once a cutting task is completed. This means that all units will be acting in standby mode or will shut down and almost no energy is required.
