Jump to Anywhere
Touch the screen near the geometry where you want to start cutting. Part cutting will resume cutting near the point selected on screen. Pierce point mode allows you to select the beginning of a contour by touching the screen near the point where you want to start. The program will execute from this point.
Track an unlimited number of consumable items in real time. Accurate information on consumables helps with preventative maintenance and saves time.
Using the built-in “Teach” mode, the machine can be used as a digitizer the size of the waterjet table. Just use the controller’s jog controls to “trace” your template, point by point, to create CNC files right at the controller! Drawing curves and lines are fast and simple – no need to use CAD/CAM software.
Features & Benefits
The controller can be configured to send out e-mail notification after the completion of a part. E-mails include an image of the part that was cut, along with who cut it and the amount of time it took to cut.
Tech support and diagnostic troubleshooting can be done anywhere in the world. A skilled technician can control your waterjet remotely through the internet.
Squareness of a gantry system is critical to cutting accurate parts. The controller continuously monitors motor travel and notifies the operator when it’s time to re-home.
Each user receives a unique password, and can be put into one of three user levels (Operator, Power Operator or Administrator). Each user level can have its permissions easily changed by an administrator.
While a part cuts, the total time remaining is displayed, along with a progress bar that fills up as you cut.
