FAQ – Finepart Waterjets

Most dense materials of higher strength will require that you add abrasive material in the waterjet stream in order to achieve an efficient cutting process. You can use abrasive of different materials and sizes. Select the type of abrasive particles with respect to the hardness of the material you intend to cut, the size of the focus tube etc.

The cutting speed depends on the properties and thickness of the material. Thicker and harder materials require a slower cut. If you want a smooth material surface the cutting speed needs to be reduced.

The Finecut water jet cutting machine can move the cutting head with a speed of 20 m/min but it is very few materials that actually can be cut with this speed. As with any abrasive waterjet machine, the cutting speed will affect the quality of the cut. As an example, the FAW300 cutting system can make a separating cut in 3 mm thick stainless steel at 300 mm/min. but more often a cutting speed of 60 mm/min., or even 30 mm/min., are selected depending on the application and precision requirements. 

Finecut waterjet cutters can cut materials up to 30 mm thickness but there are always exceptions depending on material properties and quality requirements. If you need to cut thicker parts you can fit an abrasive waterjet cutting system in the machine, which is available as an option to all Finecut waterjet cutters. The slower you cut, the thicker and harder the material can be. It means that you can cut thick material but the cutting speed will decrease. 

Yes, the Finecut water jet cutting machine can be used for milling purposes. In fact, milling capability has been one of its design criteria. The encapsulated design and powerful direct drive motion system makes it suitable for milling. The control system has look-ahead as well as machining condition selection function, the latter allowing to have different servo parameter settings, optimizing either velocity or path accuracy. 

The Finecut system is easy to place in a normal workshop. Since the machine is encapsulated it can be situated next to other precision CNC machines. If a small footprint is important, the high-pressure pump can be placed at a remote location. The Finecut machine itself has a footprint of 2 by 1.5 meter (6.6 by 4.9 foot). 

No, you do not need experience in waterjet cutting nor experience in CNC programming or others. The Finecut WMC500II has a unique intuitive HMI (human machine interface) which is very easy to learn, use and operate. The interface is modern with apps and symbols you know from your daily life.
