Nexus Dual Line Waterjet Machine

The Nexus Dual Line integrates high definition plasma and waterjet cutting into one machine to deliver amazing waterjet efficiency and cut rates. This system allows operators to cut flanges and base plates with high definition plasma for the perimeter of each plate and waterjet quality for internal cuts. Depending on the proportions of waterjet or high definition plasma the operator elects to use, the Nexus Dual Line can potentially produce the finished product in under 50% of the cutting time. The Dual Line waterjet provides a solution which allows operators to select high speed plasma cutting technology and precision finish waterjet on the same workpiece to maximise profitability.

Operating Platform

Nexus waterjet systems are built on a robust frame structure, engineered to enable the table to handle workpiece loads of up to 1000kg per square metre of table area. Every Nexus table is machined in a 5 axis machining centre to provide a precise and stable platform. The system allows rapid movement of the carriage while maintaining precision motion accuracy.

Operating Platform

Water Level Control System (Optional)

The water level adjustment system is for operators who wish to perform underwater cutting. Raising the water level in the waterjet bath and submerging the tip of the cutting head drastically reduces noise emissions. This system uses compressed air fed into a buffer tank to displace the water in the bath.

Precision Motion System

Nexus achieves fast, precise motion control with a leading edge European helical rack and pinion drive system. The drive system is protected by double layer bellows, allowing the Nexus to achieve rapid movement speeds of up to 35 metres per minute and an accuracy of 0.1mm over 12 metres. All drive components are lubricated with an automatic lubrication system.

Garnet Delivery System

The Feedline V garnet delivery system achieves a premium quality edge with the lowest possible garnet consumption by eliminating surges and fluctuations in abrasive flow. It is combined with operator interface to ensure optimum control over abrasive delivery.

High Definition Plasma

The Hypertherm HPR high definition plasma head delivers a fast, clean and highly accurate plasma cut which is integrated with the waterjet to provide a highly efficient, cost effective and productive cutting centre. Features of the HPR system include: Anti-collision breakaway system, touch-and-go (TAG): automatic torch height control, arc voltage torch height control.

Five Axis Bevel Cutting Option

The Nexus 5 axis cutting head enables operators to cut bevels and mitre cuts up to 45 degrees. The Nexus 5 axis head also provides the option to activate a "taper compensation" setting which offsets the taper in the water stream to accurately achieve the desired angle.

Streamline VI Pump

Streamline VI Pump

The Streamline VI plus pump is designed for continuous high output operations, and is particularly recommended for production line and critical demand applications. Streamline VI utilizes the latest technology and innovative configurable design for ease of use, reliability and convenience - the result is a system that delivers the highest efficiency and profit. KMT Waterjet engineers optimized the motor performance and increased the volume of the high pressure water delivery, resulting in an increased maximum orifice size and higher cutting speeds.

SigmaNEST Software Program

SigmaNEST Software Program

SigmaNEST is an intelligent, all-in-one-solution which delivers reductions in cost per part by optimising use of raw material, reducing tool travel time, and providing the flexibility to work with a whole spectrum of materials. Quickly import all common drawing files including DXF, DWG, IGES, CDL and CAD ready to cut in the shortest possible time. With technical support assistance based in Australia, the SigmaNEST team are available to provide instant remote support in our time zone.

5 Axis Cutting Head (Optional)

5 Axis Cutting Head (Optional)

The Nexus 5 Axis cutting head is a must-have for operators who require bevel cutting capability. The 5 axis cutting system incorporates a "taper compensation" feature which enables the operator to precisely achieve angle cuts up to 45 degrees.

Feedline IV Abrasive Hopper

Feedline IV Abrasive Hopper

The KMT Feedline abrasive hopper is integrated with the Nexus controller, and delivers a perfectly consistent feed of garnet by using a small motorized feed belt. The Feedline also has a level monitor to maintain hopper levels during the cutting process, and has back flush detectors which protect your work piece if a back flush occurs.

Abraline V Pressure Hopper

Abraline V Pressure Hopper

The KMT Abraline is a dual hopper continuous abrasive feed system which precisely monitors the availability of abrasive during the entire cutting process. This ensures your cutting process is never stopped due to garnet refilling. Level sensors on the unit monitor abrasive levels and when it is almost empty, the unit automatically de-pressurizes and refills the hopper with abrasive from the garnet storage tank.

Integral Diamond Educator Cutting Head

Integral Diamond Educator Cutting Head

The IDE cutting head has a diamond orifice which is factory aligned so that the jet is precisely focused to fire right down the centre of the focusing tube. Dead-on alignment of the water stream allows maximum power to be delivered to the surface, which results in faster cutting speed with less abrasive required per linear metre of cut.

MTA Tae Evo Chiller

MTA Tae Evo Chiller

For pump cooling and continuous operation during high ambient temperatures, we recommend the inclusion of an industrial chiller. The MTA Tae Evo "WJ" Series are ideally suited for climates with high ambient temperature conditions and are generously sized to maintain a constant output. The Tae Evo features a closed water circuit which eliminates cooling water wastage, and due to the scroll compressor has minimal electricity consumption, thus achieving a market-leading energy efficiency level.
