5-Axis Waterjet Cutting of Foam
By Admin, 05/11/2013
With recent advances in control and motion technology, 5-axis CNC waterjet cutting (abrasive and pure water) has become a reality. Where the normal axis on a water jet are named X (back/forth), Y (left/right) and Z (up/down), a 5-axis system will add an additional A-axis (angle from perpendicular) and C-axis (rotation around the Z-axis).
5-Axis cutting is a relatively new advancement for those using waterjet technology. Although it opens up a lot of possibilities for waterjet owners, programming for 5-axis is much different than programming for 2- or 3-axis. Read more about programming for ...
