FINECUT Waterjet Machining Center 500 II

Manufacturer : Finepart
Sectors : Aerospace, Automotive, Industry, Medical

The Finecut WMC 500 II is a new generation of precision machine tool using waterjet technology. the envelope size is 500 x 500 mm.  The machine has a conceptual design that differs from traditional waterjet cutting tables in order to optimize accuracy. In the Finecut machine the work is clamped to the machine work table being mechanically coupled to the motion system. The catcher tank used to dissipate the jet energy after cutting is separated from the work table structure in rubber suspension to minimize the influence of vibration.

FLEXIBLE FIXTURING

Although, parts can be cut on a grid table like traditional waterjet machine, the typical working practice for cutting precision parts is more like that of the Wire EDM. Like all precision manufacturing the use of adequate fixturing methods is essential to obtaining parts of high accuracy. Finecut has several solutions for fixturing based on application and precision requirements.

STATE OF THE ART MACHINE COMPONENTS

To obtain a competent machine tool the FinecutTM machine uses the latest technology. High dynamic capacity and accuracy is obtained through linear drive motors with absolute encoders using thermally stable invar scales at 50 nanometer resolution. The high end control system (FANUC 31iB5 with ALPHA-drive technology) features options like nanometer interpolation to produce smooth motion.

ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS OFFER PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

The standard machine has a three axis control (X Y Z). A wide range of options are available, including 4th axis (A axis) with synchronous motion and spindle functions, and 5-axis manipulation of the cutting head. Further, a range of assisting technologies that improves automation, setup, inspection and handling come in form of options. Examples are fixturing and measuring systems.
