Kennametal’s APX series of Roctec waterjet nozzles are said to provide 20 percent longer operating life than the Roctec 500 series of tungsten carbide nozzles. The APX nozzles are designed for use in precision cutting applications where long, uninterrupted cuts or close tolerances must be maintained for long periods to maintain part integrity or minimize expensive scrap due to premature nozzle failure. 

The company says that the APX series was developed in response to demands for the ability to make longer cuts with more flexibility using higher-pressure pumps and more efficient processes on the latest waterjet machines. According to Kennametal, APX nozzles enable shops to take on more challenging, complex jobs, or run at faster production speeds or longer production periods.
