HD 3000 Support

Support HD3000 enables full utilisation of the state of the art plasma torches.  Application of the ball screw gear and high torque servomotor is the unique drive and support leading in Z axes resolution, which allows for more dynamic and increased accuracy in the torch control. This guarantees the perfect distance between the cutting head and the material for maximum cutting quality. Support HD3000 is equipped with sensors: anti-collision, electrical/mechanical touch and height sensor. This allows using technologies such as: Contour Cut®, Contour Cut Speed®, Diameter Pro® and True Hole®.

Construction

Opal Waterjet has gantry construction. The machine is made from steel closed profiles which ensure great stability. Rail elements where protected against harmful influence of water with protective bellows or covered by aluminium parts. Relatively low weight of the gantry and specially grounded racks furnishes our Opal Waterjet with excellent dynamics and high precision motors boosts accurate positioning.

Opal WaterJet Combo

Innovation, accuracy and cost efficiency. Patented combination of waterjet and plasma.

  • Plasma
  • Water

Characteristics

Patented Opal Waterjet Combo is able to combine the advantages of quick plasma cutting with precision of  water jet. Synergistic effect of combining two different technologies allows the cutting machine to exploit both assets. The cutting machine offers versatility and flexibility for a wide range of users form small to big companies.

 

Plasma cutting

The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the cut. This technology can be use to cut all metals, because they are electrically conductive.


3D Water cutting

Water cutting is separating the material with a jet of water is the most accurate method for cutting and chamfering almost any kind of material. Water cutting provides the highest quality of edges and lack of heat affected zone.

Pro-X 3D Cutting Head

5-axis cutting head provides a very high level of efficiency and insures the achievement of maximum 3-dimensional precision. The maximum cutting angle +/- 47 and taper compensation ensure great precision and practically zero bevel on the cutting edge.

ESR System

Optional device that can operate outside the cutting machine’s working area, utilizing plasma or oxygen head. The gantry’s special extension allows unimpeded operation of the carriage over the rotator which controls the direction of pipe movement.  The rotator is equipped with special gear with rotary head to cut the pipes of 50-900 mm diameter.

Plasma marking

Marking lines, inscriptions and shapes on the metal sheet - facilitates welding and forming according to specified shapes. Marking is also used in technological description for traceability  of some elements as it is the DIN-EN 1090 Standard requirement.

Punch marking

The punch marking device is mounted on the special support. The marking system is permanently applying the text inscription on sheet metals. The marking is performed by the tempered needle which is punching on the marked area.

Scratch conveyor

During the abrasive and plasma cutting the abrasive and the slag of the process are cumulated at bottom of the working table. It is directly pumped out from the tub into sedimentation tanks. The system guarantees high efficiency of filtration process.

Dynamic water level

The level of water is adjustable to the material thickness. The function makes cutting under water possible which reduces heat influence and maximizes the safety and comfort of work by reducing the noise level and particulate pollution.

Abrasive cutting

Abrasive cutting is used for cutting of harder material types. The set consists of: cutting head, abrasive injector and feeder.

Water softening system

The devices for water softening are selected on the basis of maximum flow per hour. If continuous and long lasting operation is required the tanks of DUPLEX system can be used. In that case it works as a system of devices working alternately. The softening system significantly extends the pump consumables lifecycle and its reliability.
