The AquaCut series
The exclusive high-speed solution
for advanced 3D-cutting
The AquaCut series | Highly precise and without thermal influence
The AquaCut is a highly precise CNC waterjet cutting machine designed to process a wide variety of materials including those that cannot be subject to thermal or mechanical stresses.
Pure water or abrasive cutting can be applied, among others, to metal, stone, marble, armored glass, ceramics, plastics, wood, thick corrugated cardboard, foam materials and sandwich materials.
The machine can be equipped with a 5-axis waterjet rotator with ACTG® for bevel cutting, as well as combined with plasma, pipe and profile cutting or tapping. Other features include Additional Beveling Process (ABP) and taper compensation (ABC).
These customers rely on MicroStep and benefit from the AquaCut
"I recommend the AquaCut. With this machine we are ready for the future and are able to serve our customers as flexibly as possible."

Software from MicroStep® – developed especially for cutting
To allow you to concentrate fully on your production, our MicroStep® software solutions, drawings and cutting plans help you to intuitively convert them into finished components. Part of our product range also includes automation solutions for the organization of your entire cutting process.
Asper Basic is the ideal tool for an easy and fast creation of NC programs for different cutting technologies (plasma, oxyfuel, laser or waterjet).
With Asper Nesting, you can easily and intuitively nest component drawings into efficient cutting plans.
MPM Production Management
MPM forms the basis for automated cutting. It automatically nests complex cutting jobs and projects on the right material and distributes the cutting plans to cutting machines for processing.
Handles even the most complex cutting tasks – the iMSNC® machine control
iMSNC® from MicroStep is one of the most advanced control systems for CNC cutting machines. It was developed to easily, reliably, and efficiently turn cutting plans into finished parts with the help of a clear and modern user interface.
MicroStep iMSNC® machine control
The intelligent solution for multi-technology work
iMSNC® from MicroStep is one of the most advanced control systems for CNC cutting machines. It was developed to easily, reliably, and efficiently turn cutting plans into finished parts with the help of a clear and modern user interface. The system’s hardware consists of a stand-alone control console with a TFT touchscreen and a control panel with an LCD display mounted on the gantry. In order to achieve maximum utilization and flexibility of our machines, the ergonomic control console offers the opportunity to nest new cutting programs and generate new CNC codes during an ongoing cutting process. As the iMSNC® control system and all CAM software solutions come from our company, the software with its versatile modules can be individually customized for your production. Parameter databases for individual technologies enable consistently high quality under various circumstances. iMSNC® comes with multiple efficient evaluation tools for production process optimization. These provide you with the much-needed overview of current cutting orders, cutting times, cost calculations and machine utilization in day-to-day production.
