GCM In Action
G-Series: Go Big or Go HomeThe G-Series is the undisputed heavy hitter of WARDJet's line of waterjets. With 5' (1.5m) of Z travel standard and tanks over 50 feet long, the G-Series is ideal for aerospace, nuclear, wind, and heavy engineering applications. Unique to the G-Series is the ability to cut the full 5' depth vertically up the side of a wall without fouling the Z-carriage body. G-Series waterjets are also able to be outfitted with 5-Axis milling capabilities to reduce the need to refixture parts.
Cut vertically 5' (1.5m) up the face of a wall. 5-Axis cutting from vertical to horizontal can be programmed to operate as an A-B or A-C mechanism.
CNC 5-Axis Milling and Machining Options
5-axis CNC machining with 5 hp, 10 hp, 15 hp or 20 hp. Varying speeds from lower rpm to over 20,000 rpm. Tool changer - specify number of tools.
Infini-Winder 5-axis cutting head with unlimited rotation (no wind up required).
CMM - 3D Probe Option
Probes can be integrated with laser sensing, allowing the gantry to be used as a form of CNC measuring device to check part size before and after machining.
Multiple Cutting Heads
Multiple cutting heads can be mounted with multiple Z-carriages or on spreader bars.
Multiple Independent Z-Carriages
Multiple independent Z-axes independently driven and programmable in Y, Z, A, and C. Z-carriage has pneumatic counterweight cylinders balancing the weight.
Drive systems are heavy duty, Atlanta Drive (German) precision ground helical rack with zero backlash, split pinion, and automatic lubrication. Z-carriage is ballscrew driven.
Crossbeam travel 13'(4m) or 20'(6m) wide. Z axis travel 5'(1.5m). Unlimited length. Custom sizes available.
