The complete waterjet Waterline cutting line consists of three elements:-CNC cutting table-Pressure intensifier-CAD-CAM programmingThe cutting table is made of a bridge structure with fixed pillar and an exclusive system of suspended slideways that guarantee utmost reliability and precision of motion through the years.The guiding slides, protected by special vents impermeable to dust and back-plash, are housed inside the frame and they are suspended from the table of work to offer free access to the sides of the cutting tank to install, if needed, motion system for simplifying the loading-unloading operations of the machined pieces.
The pressure intensifier, entirely developed and manufactured by Tecnocut, is an exclusive system of in-line pumps, all parallel, electronically synchronised, hydraulically actuated and made in special stainless steel. Depending on the model and the power, the intensifier will use two to six pumps. The electronic control allows excluding from the operating cycle the pump requiring servicing.
The CAD-CAM programming station includes a powerful Personal Computer fitted with CAD and CAM programs. By using such tools, the operator will be able to produce the drawings and the corresponding positioning, to transform them into ISO language and, finally, to obtain the cutting program to be run directly by Waterline. A constantly updated data base allows the operator to select the most correct parameters for waterjet cutting depending on the materials used and their thickness. The CAD-CAM programming station, upon customers request, can be integrated with specific software programs for the shape definition with the aid of a scanner and/or digitalisation applications.
