Bystronic offers its Byjet Smart, which is designed to provide high-performance waterjet machining. According to the company, the efficiency and reliability of the machine’s pump reduces operating costs because service intervals are longer than average. For increased efficiency, the waterjet features precision cutting heads, abrasive metering and constant, automatic nozzle-height sensing. The machine’s frame features composite material designed to damp vibration, and a cutting bridge fitted with a linear motor are said to increase the machine’s durability and performance.
