The WaterCut series | Precise and compact in 2D & 3D

The WaterCut is a solid and very precise CNC guiding machine in gantry construction, especially developed for continuous use in waterjet cutting (with or without abrasive). In its newest version, the cutting system can also be equipped with a waterjet rotator for 3D processing of flat material for efficient weld seam preparation up to 45°. The high dynamics of the system are transferred by a low-set machine gantry, digital AC servo motors with backlash-free gears and precise, stainless steel linear guides in all three axes. In combination with a high-pressure pump, the WaterCut can process almost any material without thermally affecting it during the cutting process, e.g. all metals, hard stone, marble, bullet-proof glass, ceramics, plastics, corrugated cardboard, foams and composite materials can be cut. Thanks to the gantry that is driven and guided on both sides, the waterjet cutting system achieves very good cutting qualities, sharp angles and corners as well as an extremely high contour accuracy.

MPM Production Management

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.

Control

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.

WaterCut iMSNC® machine control

The intelligent solution for multi-technology work

The system consists of the machine control incl. MMI console and 17" monitor. In addition, there is an LCD operator unit mounted on the gantry as standard. 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.
