2D Cutting head Options
2D Cutting head Options Are these options suitable for you?
The 2D Cutting head can be extended with several options and features to further improve your waterjet cutting performance. Check out the following options to upgrade your cutting head!
Pierce Drill Unit DR-4
The ACM Pierce Drill Unit DR-4 configuration has been designed for functioning on an ACM X-carriage. The drilling function is used for piercing holes to create a starting hole for cutting with a waterjet, which is called pre-drilling. The ACM Pierce Drill is developed for pre-drilling in materials that cannot be pierced with a waterjet.
Materials like trespa, plexiglass and other laminated materials cannot be pierced with a waterjet without damaging the material. To prevent material damage, the drilling unit can be used to create the starting hole completely through the material in order to continue cutting with the waterjet.
The laserpointer delivers significant time savings through the fast and accurate determination of the 0-point, achieved via a laser-projected cross on the material to be cut. The cross lies parallel to the X- and Y-axis. The software integrates the position of the laserpointer so that the cutting head recognizes the 0-point of the laser as the starting point.
The laserpointer is located on the cutting carriage, from which it also draws its power, and can also be used to level the material to be cut on both X- and Y-axes. The laser-projected cross is perfectly visible in daylight. The housing is designed to ensure that the cutting process and high-speed water/abrasive mixture does not impact the life of the laserpointer.
The ACM Inkjet provides a marking technique to make parts traceable and recognizable. By printing a text, for example the part name or identifier, on the parts before starting the cutting process, the parts have a recognizable marking while you unload the parts after the cutting process. Inkjet marking uses a permanent, water resistant black ink as default.
The printer head moves over the sheet while the head sprays, with high precision, droplets of ink in a matrix of 7 dots to create the text. Besides text marking the printer head supports line marking. The lines are built up from small droplets and can be used for making notifications or markings on the sheet for later purposes.
