Modern Machine Shop
Designed with an X-Y cutting travel of 165" × 80" (4,191 × 2,032 mm), the 80X JetMachining center is equipped for large-scale precision machining of larger parts or multiple parts from materials including metal, composites and stone. The machine is equipped with the DualBridge System, a configuration option that enables the inclusion of a second Y-bridge. Each Y-bridge is designed with a touchscreen monitor, enabling access to the PC-based controllers.
One of the machine’s cutting heads showcases the A-Jet, a multi-axis cutting head that cuts accurate beveled edges at angles determined by the machine operator or part program, the company says. The other cutting head contains the Tilt-A-Jet system, which automatically calculates and offsets the natural taper that results from the abrasive jet to achieve virtually zero taper. The waterjet incorporates fixturing to hold materials in place for streamlined operation.
The waterjet is equipped with the DualPump package, a fully integrated system that utilizes two P4055V pumps designed to increase cutting speed and power and decrease machining time.
Also on display will be the Maxiem 2040 JetCutting center and the Maxiem 0707 JetCutting center.
