Equipped with the dedicated software, 5-axis can accomplish the 2D/3D cutting by offering tilt angles ranging from 0掳to 75掳.
Following the developing of control and motion technology, APW 5-axis waterjet has become a reality. Base on the normal axis on the waterjet which has 3 different axis named X (back/forth), Y (left/right) and Z (up/down), APW 5-axis waterjet adds an additional A-axis (angle from perpendicular) and an additional C-axis (rotation around the Z-axis).
Equipped with the dedicated software, 5-axis can accomplish the 2D/3D cutting by offering tilt angles ranging from 0掳to 45掳. By using it, you can cut cones from flat sheets, drill holes into tubes or produce ribbed/beveled edges. It fulfills arbitrary curved surface machining like the oblique, vertical, conical surface, circular surface, rotating surface etc.
APW 5-axis waterjet cutting opens up a wide range of applications at waterjet industry. Although, it is still a relatively new technology, from a business standpoint, the profit margins of this type of work is extremely valuable and attractive.
