Finnish Company Founded

  1. 1. Finnish company founded 1978 Manufacturer of Heavy-Duty CNC-controlled machines for sheet metal industry Over 1000 machines delivered
  2. 2. Products Guillotine Shears Press Brakes Water Jet Cutting Systems
  3. 3. <ul><li>The technique allows pure water to pass through a nozzle of small diameter, 0.18 - 0.35 mm, at very high pressure, usually 3000 - 3500 bars. The water now traveling about 700-850 m/sec, holds enough kinetic energy to cut through any material under this jet. Water Jet Cutting can be subdivided into two branches: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Pure water cutting </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Abrasive particles cutting (usually sand </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>Water Jet Cutting
  4. 4. Principle of water jet cutting Intensifier Water - Pressure 3000 - 3800 bar - Speed of the jet : 750 m/s Water in 4 bars Hydraulic 200 bars Cutting Head Abrasive
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Pure Water Jet Cutting is particularly suitable for the following materials: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Thin materials which are not metal, glass or stone: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. rubber, foam plastic, cellular plastic, plywood, corrugated pasteboard, cardboard, leather, fabrics, foodstuffs, etc </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plywood thickness < 6 mm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hard plastic plates < 10 mm </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Building boards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Shape plates and gasket materials especially those with intricate holes, openings or tight radii </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Due to the High speed (15 m/min) and opportunity to fit several nozzles, the Water Jet Cutters are especially suitable volume cutting work </li></ul>Pure Water Jet Cutting
  6. 6. Abrasive Water Jet Cutting <ul><li>In Abrasive Water Jet Cutting, sharp crystals of sand are introduced into the high speed water jet stream significantly enhancing the cutting capacity and the ability to cut very hard and firm materials. </li></ul><ul><li>Abrasive Water Jet Cutting is ideal for cutting jobs that cannot be performed by traditional methods </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Firm fiber-, sandwich-, encapsulated- or honeycomb structures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Valuable materials due to minimal waste </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ground stone, hardwood </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Detaching a piece of material from the middle of the plate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Copper </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Abrasive Water Jet Cutting <ul><ul><li>Glass including laminates & anti- bandit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Titanium </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Alloys </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stainless steel </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aluminium </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Abrasive Water Jet Cutting is suitable for complicated sheet metal jobs, as parts can be cut in stack without the need for additional trimming to the finished part e.g.: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gear wheels </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Components with difficult corners, tips, holes openings and complex contours </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Briefly, Water Jet Cutting is the best method for cutting almost all materials. <ul><li>COLD Cutting Process </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- no heat affected zones, no hardening </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- stress-free cutting </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Water Jet Cutting doesn’t harm the surface </li></ul>

  20. 20. Garnet feed rate can be adjusted accurately via CNC-control System – even during the cutting process No downtime required in replacing the garnet dosing nozzle to change the flow rate. Garnet flow can be changed during cutting ( for example at corners where the increase in the garnet flow will allow increase in the cutting speed) – automatically controllable via program auxiliary functions <ul><li>Features </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits </li></ul>Lip seal design protection for X1, X2 and Y axis Perfected design of protection to the drives for abrasive water jet cutting applications. No chance for abrasive or water getting in to the ball screw drives and therefore causing wear and rust. (Resulting in reduced accuracy and increased downtime) Robust steel construction of the machine frame. No vibration i.e. better cut edge quality. Machine tolerates more arduous shop floor use.
  21. 21. Additional cutting heads can be retrofitted without reducing the overall working width of the machine This means that you do not need a larger width machine to accommodate “ dead space” of additional cutting heads – resulting in more available shop floor space for other activities. Ball screws 50 mm diameter with rotating nut in X1 & X2 axis Rotating ball screw 40 mm diameter in Y-axis Calibrated using a laser-measuring device! Heavy-duty ball screws guarantee cut accuracy better than 0.1 mm. From experience, the accuracy has been maintained for periods 6 to 7 years – or even longer. Central lubrication points on machine in easily accessible positions. Low and quick maintenance times – therefore reduced downtime and cost. Pre-tested, modular construction Ensures very short installation and start-up time giving more time for training and production start-up … Features & Benefits
  22. 22. Quick and easy reversing of the machine back along the cut contour for example during failure in the cutting process Reduced down time without interrupting and restarting the program cycle. High-pressure filters fitted at the inlet of each cutting head as a standard feature Reduces consumable wear and therefore cost. Technology databank for water jet cutting parameters Cutting parameters can be called up relating to material type, thickness and even contract name. The parameters (cutting speeds, kerf, pressure, abrasive flow and piercing time) are automatically downloaded into the CNC-control This means that an operator with no experience of water jet cutting techniques can use the machine and maintain a consistent cut quality … Features & Benefits
  23. 23. Efficiently with multi-heads
