5 Axis Water Jet Cutting Machine

A 5-axis cutting head can be used to cut 4-axis parts, where the bottom surface geometries are shifted a certain amount to produce the appropriate angle and the Z-axis remains at one height. This can be useful for applications like weld preparation where a bevel angle needs to be cut on all sides of a part that will later be welded, or for taper compensation purposes where the kerf angle is transferred to the waste material – thus eliminating the taper commonly found on water jet-cut parts. A 5-axis head can cut parts where the Z-axis is also moving along with all the other axes. This full 5-axis cutting could be used for cutting contours on various surfaces of formed parts.

With a highly experienced and fully certified team of engineers and technicians we offer our full support throughout the life cycle of your abrasive waterjet machine, to ensure you get the best results and productivity from your investment.

CNC waterjet cutting is a multistage process. The steps involved are:

1. Designing the Part

An engineering design of the part is created before cutting it. For simple cuts in a straight line, this step can be skipped. However, a detailed graphical design with the measurements is required for complex parts. The graphical design is made in Computer Aided Design (CAD) software.

2. Converting Design to CAM

A CNC waterjet machine does not understand graphical design. It understands CAM language (g-code and m-code). Therefore, the CAD design is converted to CAM in Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software. The CAM file is loaded to the machine control panels.

3. Machine Setup

The operator starts the machine setup for the operations. The workpiece is clamped on the worktable. All the necessary settings are selected and preliminary checks are done.

4. Machine Startup

The machine startup process takes place according to the particular CNC waterjet model. Startup includes the generation of pressure in the hydraulic pump. The hydraulic pump provides pressurized hydraulic oil of around 50 psi to the intensifier. The intensifier increases the hydraulic pressure to 50,000 psi and even more.

5. Execution of Waterjet Cutting

Once the pressure is ready, the cutting operator starts. The water jet cutting head moves around the part while forcing the high-pressure stream of water. The G-code of the CAM file controls the movement. The stream of water is very narrow with a thickness less than a human hair.

6. Unmounting of Part

Once the machining is completed, the part is unmounted from the machine. If the part requires any further machining, the operator mounts it on the worktable again. Otherwise, the part is sent for secondary machining.

CNC water jet cutting machines are available in many different configurations. The use of a particular type is based on the requirement of the operation. These different types of machines are:

One-dimensional Waterjet Cutting

One-dimensional waterjet cutting can also be seen as single-axis cutting. In this method, the waterjet cutting heads can only move in one direction. This method is used for straight linear cuts. Generally, this technique is applied to the processing of raw materials.

Two-dimensional Waterjet Cutting

Two-dimensional waterjet cutting is also known as 2-axis waterjet cutting. The cutting head can move on the X-axis and Y-axis. These machines can cut linear as well as circular cuts. However, they cannot create inclined surfaces or curved cuts in the vertical plane.

3-axis Waterjet Cutting

3-axis waterjet cutting machine can move the cutting head in the X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis. The X-axis is left and right movement across the worktable. The Y-axis is the top and bottom movement across the worktable. The Z-axis is the vertical movement perpendicular to the worktable.

4-axis Waterjet Cutting

4-axis waterjet cutter can move in the linear X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis. In addition, it can also move in the rotary A-axis. A-axis is the circular axis around the X-axis. 4-axis waterjet cutting can make curved cuts and machine five sides of the workpiece.

5-axis Waterjet Cutting

5-axis waterjet cutting machine is the most capable option among the different types. It can cut linearly in the X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis. In addition, the cutting head can also move in any two of the A-axis, B-axis, and C-axis. A-axis is rotary around the X-axis, the B-axis rotary around the Y-axis, and the C-axis rotary around the Z-axis. 5-axis cutters can create linear, curved, and inclined parts. It can also craft parts with internal features and geometries.

Waterjet cutting offers manufacturers versatility and flexibility like no other. The range of benefits associated with using waterjet cutting gives this technology its edge over others, such as laser and saw cutting.

No Heat-Affected Zones

What is a heat-affected zone? It’s an area of metal that has not been melted but has undergone changes in properties due to exposure to relatively high temperatures. Cutting processes generating high heat created problems, such as hardened edges and distortion for workshops. Manufacturers have overcome these issues by using waterjet cutting, a cold-cutting process.

Accurate Internal Cut-Outs

The waterjet cutting process creates all sorts of custom patterns, unique designs, and logos. Cutting accuracy of ±0.0005” is possible with a waterjet cutter, making it the tool of choice for precise internal cut-outs.

Excellent Edge Quality

Manufacturers achieve smooth, burr-free edges through a combination of the correct water speed, pressure, nozzle size, and flow rate. In most cases, waterjet cutting eliminates the necessity for secondary finishing, saving significant time and money while improving efficiency along the production line.

No Tool Changes

Waterjet cutting allows you to work on different materials without changing tools. Merely adjust your feed rate for the new material and thickness, and start the next cut.

Brings Down Costs in the Shop

Waterjet cutting is a cold-cutting process. Other heat-producing machining methods can create heat zones that often cause the parts to warp, making them out of tolerance and even unusable. With its cold-cutting process, the CNC waterjet minimizes or eliminates the chance of scrapping machined parts. And because waterjet-cut parts require little edge treatment or secondary finishing, you save money on those extra operations.

Material and Thickness Are Not Major Factors in Waterjet Cutting

The high-pressure cutting stream of water and the abrasive solution will cut through most materials. Also, material thickness will not be as essential because waterjet machines will cut aluminum, multi-layer materials, composites, and hardened steels in thicknesses over one inch.

Waterjet can cut most materials up to 24″ in thickness. The range of maximum thickness of water jet cutting varies based on the type of material. For instance, it can cut hard metals and alloys up to a thickness 12″ to 18″ (depending on the machine). It can cut soft materials many times that thickness.

The maximum thickness does not mean that a water jet machine is limited to that value. Theoretically, the water jet cutting process can cut any thickness of any material. However, the cutting time increases significantly beyond a certain thickness. Additionally, thicker materials lead to slower cutting speed. The maximum thickness is the value after which the cutting speed and time can become unfeasible.
