Full 5-axis Processing

Shaping 3D components in different work planes

Large-scale 5-axis processing allows the advantages of the water jet process to be utilized in the finishing of fabricated structures, pressed parts, moulded composite parts and other 3-D components. With Z-Axis capacities up to 1000 mm and a generous working area, the water jet technology has been embraced largely by the defence, space, aerospace and power industries.

Major aero engine manufacturers have turned to 5-axis water jets to produce apertures in titanium. Using water jets, they eliminated stress in the material and in a hardened state left the edges without heat-affected zones.

In the automotive and defence industries, materials such as Kevlar, carbon fibre and other laminates can be cut easily to precise form using abrasive water jet cutting (AWJ). Applications include trimming of moulded parts into their final shape.
