The iJet high-pressure water deburring machine moves workpieces in four axes over a series of horizontal and vertical rotary nozzles, direct nozzles and manifold stations to remove chips and burrs from specific part features and clean all surfaces. The operating principle relies on a high-pressure (to 10,000 psi) intensified and directed waterjet to blast chips and burrs from external surfaces and internal part features. The part is moved over one or more single-jet rotary horizontal and vertical nozzles when deburring multiple single features (for low- to mid-volume applications). For higher-volume applications, special station manifolds remove chips, deburr multiple features on one or more part faces. Also, workpieces can be mechanically deburred with brushes and other deburring tools. Cycle time reduction is possible when the machine is configured to handle two or more parts in a cleaning cycle, the company says. The standard machine configuration can accept a combination of as many as six single- and/or multi-feature deburr and wash stations. The machine has a small footprint and can be integrated to external part conveying systems. It also acts as the part-handling system, as it picks parts from a conveying system then moves the parts with a CNC part program through a series of high-pressure custom and universal wash and deburr stations. The part can be indexed for five- and six-sided part cleaning, and parts can be spun with the rotary axis to remove residual water. With a pre-wash station, a part rinse station and a blow-off and dry station, parts are fully washed, deburred, cleaned and dried in a single machine.
