The Techjet-X3® series is the latest in our evolution of innovative products to create a precision, easy-to-operate, safe and highly reliable Waterjet Cutting Machine. The Techjet-X3® is built to the highest tolerances and incorporates Linear Scale Feedback to ensure the highest accuracy of motion in the industry. By mapping the entire cutting area with a laser-calibrated digital encoder,
the motion system can deliver positional accuracy of 0.0005” (0.01mm)
and high cutting speeds of up to1000ipm or 25m/min.
The Techjet-X3® is designed and built to the highest quality standards of Profile Waterjet Cutting Machine manufacture, incorporating practical design features and high quality components. It was these practical Design Solutions that won it the prestigious "Excellence in Product Design" Award at the Manufacturing Innovation Excellence Awards upon its introduction into the market in 2001.
It is these same design solutions that will provide each Techjet-X3® customer with a Waterjet machine that lasts longer and requires less maintenance, while delivering an easy to use, fast and extremely accurate system at a competitive price.

Softec™ Waterjet Software
Every Techjet-X3® comes standard with SOFTEC Water Jet Software.
At the "Heart" of Softec is Tru-Cut Technology, a highly sophisticated algorithms database that determines the optimum cutting speeds and machine ramping characteristics. Once you select the material to be cut, it's thickness and surface finish required, the computer will take care of the rest, ensuring the minimum cutting time for any given part.
Softec™ software runs on the very latest in controller technology, the AM2000. Developed by ANCA, one of the pioneers in servo control technology, and a leader in the very demanding “CNC Tool and Cutter Grinder” market, the AM2000 delivers maximum acceleration with ultra high speed feedback to ensure minimum processing time with maximum accuracy and best surface finish. It also incorporates “patented” technology such as the MPG wheel which allows the operator to take the machine along the cutting path, forwards or backwards to any point, simply by winding the hand wheel.
