Entry level waterjet machine
- Published: March 25, 2012
An entry level waterjet machine, the MWX3 is a new machine from Mitsubishi designed for production environments and customers new to waterjet.
Its solid base construction and cantilever head design make it reliable and affordable, claims the company.
The Mitsubishi 720 CNC control delivers advanced programming capabilities. The unit is controlled on a 15-in. waterproof screen, with improved graphics and NC design to simplify operation. An easy-to-use menu and help functions guide the operator through programming and workpiece setup.
MWX3 comes standard with a high pressure S-50 KMT pump, which provides 60,000 psi of water traveling up to Mach 2 with 1.09 GPM of water consumption through a maximum orifice size of 0.013 in. The reciprocating hydraulic piston to ceramic water piston ratio is 20:1, pushing the water into an accumulator that maintains a smooth even flow to the cutting nozzle.
