Boosting company's waterjet capability
25 January 2013
Wightman Stewart has supplied a turnkey waterjet system to CML Alloys that includes an Accustream AS Series intensifier and diamond cutting heads, a WARDJet waterjet cutting table and twin screen CNC controller. Th
The AccuStream AS 60 100hp intensifier and the WARDJet ZX-2543 waterjet cutting table provide the ability to cut nickel alloys and titanium with a high degree of accuracy and with minimal waste material. The company has improved lead times and expanded its range of services using the waterjet cutting process to provide fully machined parts to exacting specifications.
The WARDJet ZX 2543 has been custom-designed with a 2.5 by 4.3m cutting table to accommodate large sheets of titanium.While most titanium cutting involves straight-line cutting, the 2.5m deep table gives CML the facility to cut components such as large dished heads.
