Water Jet Cutters Water jet cutters by Techserv are designed and built in our factory in England. Waterjet cutting offers a cost effective, efficient and flexible method of cutting most materials including metal, glass, stone and plastics using either pure water or additional abrasive. The process produces cuts with a narrow kerf and smooth edges with no material degradation over a wide range of thickness’ upto 150mm. The Techserv water jet machine is equipped with a Techserv C.N.C. and a machine control panel. The Techserv CNC is a ‘state of the art’ PC based motion controller featuring colour graphics, touch screen, Intel processor, intuitive operator interface, local area network connectivity etc. The Techserv CNC is fully optimised for water jet cutting, this combined with a position loop update time of less than one millisecond makes it the ideal choice for the low speed – high precision demands of a water jet cutter. The machine control panel has switches for all machine functions including drives on/off, head select, raise lower, set height etc. All the machines electronics are mounted away from the machine in a stand alone operators console.

The whole beam assembly is then covered to prevent the ingress of abrasive. To the rear of this assembly is a second aluminium beam to support the high pressure cable chain feeds to the heads, this beam is exposed to prevent water damage to the main beam in the event of a water leak. The main legs of the machine are fabricated from water jet cut aluminium with stainless steel covers, all fasteners are also of stainless steel. The main drive motors are located within the legs beneath the water tanks skirt, this ensures the sensitive drives are protected from both abrasive and physical damage. This method of construction gives the machine a very clean appearance with all the mechanical components out of view. The Zaxis head features twin linear bearings with motion via a belt drive. All slides and drive components are fully covered to prevent damage from abrasive. Automatic height sense is available as an optional extra. The twin heads are mounted independently on the beam. Each head has its own carriage with the master carriage being fitted with a drive motor and encoder. The carriages can be locked together for twin head cutting using a drive belt and pneumatic clamp and easily adjusted for optimum plate usage. Machine drive is via three AC brushless servo motors fitted with precision planetary gearboxes and encoders. The main drives are synchronised by the C.N.C.
