FULL 5-AXIS CUTTING
When our clients come to Phoenix Metal Designs, we are proud to provide them with the top of the line in Water Jet cutting technology. Our 5-axis cutting head allows us to Cut at an angle as wide as 90°, can provide high tolerance cutting on materials up to thicknesses of 10” on the Y Axis, and has a sprawling 13’6” x 7’7” cutting area.
Our state of the art WARDJet’s unique design for 5-Axis ensures the unit can conservatively achieve accuracies of ± 1 arc minute, backlash free motion, with a torque of 39Nm or 345 in-lbs. WARDJet also directly couples their tilting axis mechanism to the harmonic drive output flange and the rock-solid crossed roller bearing. The unparalleled backlash characteristics of the harmonic drive mechanism eliminate the slop and play inherent to other designs, easily outstripping the competition.
WARDJet's 5-Axis Cutting heads are engineered to be substantially more accurate than any other 5-Axis cutting head in the industry!
Water jet cutting is best used for architectural design components, signage, patterns, as well as for components that require machining. 5-Axis Waterjet cutting is not limited to metal!
Benefits of water jet cutting:
Water jet is the best technology for cutting thicker metals and is also effective on glass and stone and is faster and more economically than older technologies.
Minimal fixturing is required for most parts, that means results are faster and more accurate. This makes it extremely cost-effective for short runs for prototypes, for example, with metals that are difficult to cut conventionally.
Water jets produce results with no heat-affected zones, heat distortions or mechanical stress
naturally small kerf and tight nesting patterns serve to maximize the yield from each metal sheet.
