MACHINE SOLUTIONS

The FinJet L -series is designed to meet the needs of both small and large cutting needs. For smaller plates, the machine allows for cutting at one end and for inserting and collecting the plates at one end. The L-Series can be equipped with 1-4 cutting heads, either with single nozzle units with individual Z-axis or with a nozzle bar, whereby all nozzles are controlled by a single Z-axis. The FinJet L can also be fitted with a tube cutting unit.

PROPERTIES

MOVEMENT

In FinJet L models, the movement of the waterjet cutting machine is executed on a X-axis with a helical precision rack and pinion and on the Y-axis with Ø 40 mm precision ball screws. High-quality 2kW B&R (ABB) servomotors are equipped with absolute measurement, which allows the machine to be started without the need for extra home run. The bearings of the sleds are always mounted on precision guides with four bearings and at sufficient distances to eliminate vibration. The machine’s mechanics are designed for durability and longevity in all conditions.

PROTECTION

Since abrasive waterjet cutting machines are always exposed to at least abrasive and water, protection must be designed accordingly. In FinJet L models, the X-axis is always protected by a tight U-beam. The Y movement is protected by a round bell and the machine frame is covered to withstand extreme conditions.

ELECTRICITY & AUTOMATION

Electrical and automation design on all FinJet waterjet cutting machines are planned and executed by Muototerä’s own personnel. This allows optimum compatibility between mechanical and automation components. A good waterjet cutting machine is made from quality components, but it is not enough on its own. All parts must work together seamlessly. The purpose of Muototerä is always to make the waterjet cutting machines perform better than the sum of their parts. In practice, this means collaborative design with mechanical and automation design, so they are executed simultaneously for best results.

The electrical cabinets in FinJet L models are always designed with closed circle cooling, which makes the electrical and automation components more durable and the waterjet cutting machine less prone to failures. The machine is controlled by Muototerä’s own interface for water cutting. The HMI (Human Machine Interface) is a 21.5 ”Full HD touchscreen with a powerful 1.91GHz processor. The user interface has been designed based on the user experience so that it is simple yet powerful, offering all the features needed for effective waterjet cutting.

HIGH PRESSURE COMPONENTS

High pressure components play a critical role in waterjet cutting. As it is a high pressure device (3800 – 6200 bar), the high pressure components are subjected to extremely heavy stress. In addition to the self-made components, Muototerä uses components from KMT Waterjet. High-quality components guarantee the reliability of the machine at all pressure levels.

All FinJet waterjet cutting machines can be connected to any high-pressure pump, including old ones already at the client’s site. Muototerä is an official distributor of KMT High Pressure Pumps and a Premium OEM Partner. Our high pressure pump product range can be found here

SAFETY, CONTROL & MACHINE

The cutting table is surrounded with a safety light barrier. Interrupting of light barrier will stop the cutting process and the pump.

Safety light barrier

Isolated cutting area with either fixed walls or mesh fence and sliding door. The cutting table is surrounded with a fence according layout. The fence has one door as standard equipped with safety switch.

Isolated cutting area

Safety dump valve relieves the high pressure water from the tubing of the table when safety circuit is deactivated. At the same time another valve closes the high pressure network allowing to keep the pressure high on the network. Safety dump valve allows the pump to remain on while i.e. changing nozzle without pressure on the machine tubing. This helps to work safely and continue work quickly after activating the safety circuit. Otherwise the pump must be stopped.

Safety dump valve package
It is easily movable and has some place for papers. Dimensions W x D 650 x 750 mm, height 1400mm.
