Swift-Jet features

Cutting head options

The table is available with the option of water only; for cutting foam, textiles, PVC, vinyl and more. Or as water and abrasive for cutting nearly everything else

Abrasive
regulator

Mini hopper with abrasive metering system maximises the flow of garnet into the nozzle, improving flow consistency and reducing the likelihood of blockages caused by surges and fluctuations in the garnet feed.

Heavy duty
base

Epoxy coated fully welded heavy duty base and tank provides support and rigidity

Hammelmann
direct drive pump

The quality of the German designed and built Hammelmann pump is indisputable.

Fully enclosed
drag chain

Fully enclosed drag chains protect cables against abrasion and damage

Precision linear
rail

Linear rail on all axes. Straight, accurate and repeatable movements, they also deliver a smoother motion compared to other guide systems.

Waterjet Programming Software (features)

Standard

  • Simply the industry standard for waterjet cutting
  • Software offers advanced speed optimization allowing the user to combine fast production with an excellent cutting result on a wide range of materials
  • The Kerf width is dynamically changed depending on actual speed to help maintain incredible accuracy no matter what you are cutting
  • Machinability calculator – use to determine the optimum cutting speeds on materials not held in the material library
  • Abrasive toolsets built in
  • 3-axis CAM
  • Customisable cutting rules – Optimise cutting parameters for best cutting performance
  • 53 shape parametric library comes as standard
  • Make estimations for cutting cost and material cost
  • View job reports in Word or PDF formats
  • Customisable toolsets – Modify or create toolsets for new materials
  • Create quick access commands for personalised fast navigation within the software
  • https://igems.se/cadcam/

Options

  • Dynamic nesting
  • Ability to convert all TrueType fonts to usable geometrical information using the ImageTracer command
  • Also generate new geometry from a camera or scanner device or import a picture then create a new layer and draw over the picture to create new geometry
  • Create geometry from an old CNC file with the NC-Reader
  • Geometry clean up corrects double lines, overlapped objects or gaps between objects

Hammelmann Direct Drive Pump

The quality of the German designed and built Hammelmann pump is indisputable. The stainless-steel pump head is free of alternating stress and the crank section calculation by ‘Finite element method’ ensures its long working life under continuous load. The Hammelmann plunger pump converts 93% to 98% of the shaft power to hydraulic energy making it energy efficient. In fact, it is up to 30% more energy efficient than compared to other waterjet systems and has much longer service intervals (up to 2000 hours)

We have put together a comprehensive list of materials our Swift-Jet Pro waterjet can cut, along with some that are not suitable. We understand that there will be many materials not included but that does not mean waterjet will not be suitable, please feel free to contact us to discuss your individual requirements and arrange a sample cut.
