 Press Releases

  • January 2018

    In 2017 the demand for the Water Jet Sweden FixeX machine systems increased significantly. At the moment production hall 3 is filled with frames and equipment for new FiveX machines being built for customers in China, USA and Europa.

    FiveX machines are commonly used in high tech industry sectors like aerospace, aircraft, liquid/gas and power industry all over the world.

    WJS FiveX machines are advanced and bespoke abrasive cutting tools designed for specific 3D cutting requirements.

    - As water jet market evolve the demand for this type of cutting solutions has increased, which is our field of expertise, says Lennart Svensson, CEO at Water Jet Sweden.

    A FixeX machine system is built with Water Jet Sweden’s most advanced technology with a 0-91 degree cutting angle. The exceptionally stable design enables an extra-long Z-movement up to 1500 mm with keep extraordinary repetition and positioning accuracy, for high precision free form cutting in full 3D. 

    An Intelligent Probe Interface, integrated with a large library of measurement cycles, simplifies job preparation and programming. Full size wall design and automated stainless-steel back and frontal protection keep operators safe while conducting 0-90° free form cutting in space.

    Each FiveX machine system is a unique solution based on specific customer requirements. Built on the same platform but bespoke in width, length, height and set of features. When challenged we even redefine the machine specification to find the best machine solution for the task given. Product development driven by customers’ demands and market needs.

    High precision abrasive water jet cutting has been an area of expertise for decades. Since the international breakthrough in 1999, winning the prestigious order from Daimler Chrysler Aerospace, Water Jet Sweden has been serving high tech industries, like aerospace, defense, chemical and power corporations, all over the world.

    Water Jet Sweden has one of the broadest waterjet product portfolios in the world. The FiveX Machine System is the top of the line machine model in the portfolio. With a Z-movement of 750-1500 mm and a ± 0-91° cutting angle it is specifically designed to manage high precision 3D abrasive cutting in space.

    When building a FiveX machine, made for cutting in space, you need to look extra carefully at the safety aspects. If not interrupted, A waterjet beam could be lethal meters away, therefore all FiveX machines are designed with full size walls and automated front and back protection.

    – This time the challenge was to cut cone shaped holes on a vertical surface, says Tony Ryd, Technical Director at Water Jet Sweden. The machine specification has a maximum cutting angle of ± 91° which wouldn’t be enough, so we were forced to redefine machine specification and introduce a new cutting head with ± 0-120° cutting angle. After a thorough evaluation of component suppliers, we finally found a solution that met our long life and high-performance standards, Tony concludes.

    Even if the FiveX model is a highly complex machine system the PanelOne HMI makes it smooth and easy to operate. PanelOne is a modern HMI with touchscreen buttons and a simple joystick movement which requires just a few days of training to master.

    – Another unique feature on this specific machine project is a new cost-efficient sensor function, fully integrated in the PanelOne HMI, continues Tony Ryd. When started, the safety lid opens, it automatically identifies the 3D workpiece placement and sets the zero point. Then, without halting, the program goes directly into cutting mode, Tony tells.

    Water Jet Sweden machines are powered by top of the line Ultra High-Pressure Pumps from the leading OEM suppliers in US and Europe, KMT and BFT. They safely deliver consistent ultra-high-pressure water, and the digitally controlled abrasive feeders mounted the machine secure the cutting process.

    The machine design is extremely stable.  Linear drives on the X-beam and ballscrews on X-axis safely and repeatedly performs high precision free form cutting, with a repetition accuracy of less than ± 0.025 mm. The Water Jet Sweden world patented gantry machine design is unique, since it enables the same cutting accuracy independent of machine table size. A 2-meter machine is as accurate as a 6-meter machine. The FiveX model is designed for both 4100 bar and 6200 bar, which makes it unique compared to similar products in the market.

    Being famous for long life machine and consistent performance Water Jet Sweden offers a 5-year performance warranty proving the quality of the machine design, parts and components. On this machine model as well as all other.

    – We guarantee that all our machines keep the same tolerance level after five years as the day when the machine was first delivered, Tony summarize.

  • Find out how 3D AR technology can be the machine show of the future.

    European manufacturer Water Jet Sweden is known for making advanced high-quality water jet systems. Often bespoke machine projects according to specific customer requirements. Even if Water Jet Sweden have a state of the art US customer quite close to Atlanta Fairground it is not viable to put the machine on display at Fabtech Exhibition, since in is in full production.

    • Instead we have made a digital 3D copy of the machine for everyone to experience, tells Lennart Svensson CEO at Water Jet Sweden. Via 3D augmented reality technology, you can place the machine anywhere and experience it live. You can even step into the machine while cutting, explains Lennart.

    Via an iPad or Smartphone, you easily place the machine wherever you want and experience it cutting in size 1:1, 1:4 or 1:10. Just press the start button and the machine begins to cut.

    • For those customers interested in a machine of their own and a real-life experience, there will be factory visits arranged to the nearby customer, where you get to see the real machine installation and meet our dear customer, tells Lennart Svensson.

    Do you want to bring the digital machine home? No problem. Just visit the booth of Water Jet Sweden, download the app, get a password, and we give you the machine for free.

    Welcome to visit Water Jet Sweden in booth B9844 situated in the far end of Hall B.

  • FiveX waterjet system

    Front line technology for advanced free form waterjet cutting

    FiveX machines are used in high tech industry sectors, built with our most advanced technology, with an exceptional stable design to repeatedly perform high precision free form abrasive waterjet cutting of full 3D components.

    Large-scale 5-axis processing allows the advantages of the waterjet process to be utilized in the finishing of fabricated structures, pressed parts, molded composite parts and other 3D parts. With Z-Axis capacities up to 1500 mm and a generous working area, the waterjet technology has been embraced largely by the Defense Industry, Space Industry, Aerospace Industry and Power Industry. Designed materials such as Hardened Steel, Titanium, Kevlar and Carbon Fiber can easily be cut to precise form. Applications include trimming of molded parts into their final shape.
