The modular design of the WMC2 integrates all mechanical and electronic components as well as the high-pressure pump, to ensure optimum ease of operation and access. The WMC2 is available in various sizes and configurations, and is therefore suitable for the most varied range of applications. The key to maximizing profits on a waterjet cutting system is to efficiently increase part production. Therefore the design of the WMC2 allows for unique configurations and customization to meet your individual needs.
Options to meet your needs
If your applications require high precision and productivity, the WMC2 can be equipped with either single or dual Dynamic Waterjet® cutting heads. For high-production it gives you the ability to operate multiple PASER® ECL Plus abrasive waterjet cutting heads (maximum four heads). If you need to cut soft goods such as gasket material, rubber or insulation, the WMC2 can be equipped with up to eight WaterKnife pure water cutting heads. Should you need to pierce brittle materials such as stone, glass or composites, the machine can be equipped with the patented UltraPierce vacuum assist system to ensure trouble free hole starting. Height sensor with/without anti-collision system, laser pointer and clamping system complete the range of choices.
Superior waterjet cutting performance
Rapid traverse speeds up to 35 m/min and contouring speeds up to 25 m/min give the WMC2 exceptionally swift cycle times and allow it to machine even soft materials efficiently with pure waterjet. Rotating nut drive assures that this machine will achieve traverse and contouring speeds with high acceleration. An advanced design, which separates the catcher tank from the X-Y frame, ensures that the WMC2 is consistently capable of producing parts with high accuracy.
For an easy abrasive removal the WMC2 is equipped with the self-cleaning WaterVeyor removal system. Sucked by the "Venturi effect", the used abrasive is continuously pumped out of the catcher tank. This special patented design provides no wear of any pumping device.
The system is controlled by FLOW's own FlowMaster® PC control system, containing all the required parameters stored in a technology database. Alternatively the WMC2 is also available with a CNC control system.
And, as with all FLOW waterjet cutting systems you can choose the pump solution that is suited best for your application: direct driven HyPlex pump or classic intensifier pump. But no matter which model you choose, you will receive a FLOW pump that is reliable, efficient and easy to maintain.
