On average, the Z-travel on a standard waterjet gantry is around 12”. WARDJet recently designed a gantry capable of cutting nearly three times this height by incorporating 3 feet of Z-travel as an option for R-Series and Z-Series machines.
Pictured is WARDJet’s new R-Series riser which accommodates for 36” of travel on the Z-axis. Providing an additional 2 feet of vertical travel allows this system the ability to perform large-scale 3D cutting with thick raw materials for a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive and heavy duty construction.
