Front line technology for advanced free form cutting
Built with the most advanced technology and with an exceptionally stable design to be able to repeatedly perform high precision free form cutting of full 3D components, FiveX machines are commonly used in high tech industry sectors like space, aircraft and power industry. Machines are delivered with Mastercam CAD/CAM, the leading most flexible 3D software in the world.

Full 5 axis motion for free form 3D cutting
Large scale 5-axis abrasive water jet machining allows the advantages of the process to be realised in the finishing of fabricated structures, pressed parts, composite moulded parts and other such 3-D components. Alignment of 3-d shapes is made through automatic routines using a Renishaw probe, eliminating the risk of misalignment of the work piece on the machine.

Eliminate distortion in production process
Major aero engine manufacturers have turned to FiveX to produce apertures in fabrications manufactured from titanium then finish machined. Traditionally when the apertures were removed by traditional chip machining processes, stresses in the material were released in a manner that distorted the part and took the previously good geometry into an unacceptable form. Using 5-axis to create these final apertures did not create the same stresses in the material and left the edges without heat affected zone and in a non-work hardened state.

In the defence and armour industry, materials such as Kevlar, Carbon and other laminates can be cut easily to precise form. Applications include the trimming of moulded parts to final shape such as for the underneath of military vehicles and high security vehicles.

Robust build with generous working area
With Z-Axis capacities up to 1500mm and with 4m x 6m available as standard in X and Y respectively a generous working area is provided with plenty of area for the cutting head to travel around the part. Built on a solid gantry construction not only provides a high integrity dynamic motion, but also a fully protected working zone for the operator.
