Wightman Stewart is now offering the Wardjet R-Series of waterjet cutting tables in the UK.

The waterjet cutting tables have been designed to meet the demand for the largest table sizes required for the fabrication of the larger parts typically found in the aerospace manufacturing and subcontract industries.

A cross beam of up to 4.3m can be provided and, thanks to a modular design, the length of the table can be long as required, with standard sizes starting at 4m, 6m, 9m and 12m.

Designed for both abrasive and pure waterjet cutting, the R-Series Wardjet series comes in eight standard sizes.

Features include a high-precision helical rack and split pinions to achieve longer travel distances with no backlash.

The lip-seal design allows the inclusion of multiple, independent carriages on the Z axis.

Multiple cutting heads and additional crossbeams can be mounted onto the same side rails.

Therefore, a 6m or larger R-Series unit could have multiple heads, crossbeams and controllers and cut different parts simultaneously all on one table.

The R-Series features an additional foot of travel provided in the left-to-right cutting direction.

This has been added as a standard feature because many waterjet subcontract cutting companies want to use multiple cutting heads to produce two parts in the same amount of time it takes to cut one part in order to increase production.

Typically, the moment a second head is added, the distance of travel that the first head can move is reduced to make space for the addition of the second head.

This is overcome with the extra foot.

Each Z-Carriage has its own motor-driven height adjustment and can be configured to have an independent height sensor.

The selection of intensifiers to match required cutting needs is critical and Wardjet machines can be supplied with a variety of pumps with operating pressures up to 60,000lb/in2, with 30hp, 50hp, 75hp, 100hp and 150hp intensifiers available.

For use in conjunction with the R-Series, Wardjet offers the X-Classic waterjet controller, which provides machine control for up to 32 separate axes, is fully networkable and comes standard with a webcam for live video technical support.
