Intec® – G2 Series

The Intec-G2® Series of Water Jet Cutting Systems represents the latest in our evolution of innovative products to create a precision, easy-to-operate, safe and highly reliable machine. The Intec water jet can cut almost any material to 200mm (8”) thick at maximum cutting speeds with minimum Capital outlay. In order to achieve the highest tolerances, the Linear Scale Feedback option ensures the highest accuracy of motion. By mapping the entire cutting area with a laser interferometer, the motion system can deliver positional accuracy of 0.05mm (0.002”.)

Every single Intec-G2® machine 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 Design Solutions that won the prestigious “Excellence in Product Design” Award at the Manufacturing Innovation Excellence Awards upon its introduction into the market in 2001.

TECHNI will provide each customer, with a Waterjet machine that lasts longer and requires less maintenance, while delivering an easy to use, fast and accurate system at a very competitive price.

Software

Softec™ Waterjet Software

Every Intec-G2® comes standard with Softec™ Waterjet Cutting Software, which has been developed by TECHNI Waterjet with two very clear goals in mind:

  • To cut parts at the minimum cost with the greatest accuracy,
  • To have a simple and intuitive interface with the operator.

The result is a comprehensive “All-In-One” Windows based software that is specifically designed for waterjet cutting. This maximizes productivity, and anyone with PC experience can learn to use quickly and easily.

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, its thickness and surface finish required, the computer will take care of the rest, ensuring the minimum cutting time for any given part.

Other Softec™ Features include:

  • DXF or “G” code program importation
  • Dynamic wear compensation, to automatically adjust for focusing tube wear
  • Full Costing Package
  • 5 different cut qualities, selectable for each line
  • On-Screen running in real time
  • Re-start cutting from anywhere
  • Comprehensive Alarms Window
  • Maintenance Timers
  • Dynamic piercing and high or low-pressure piercing
  • Auto nesting and array nesting
  • Standard objects library
  • Simulation in real time
  • Dry running
  • Auto and manual functions for; kerf compensation, lead-ins/outs and tabbing
  • Straight or curved lead-ins/outs
  • Text for all windows fonts
  • Extensive materials database

Controller

TECHNI Waterjet’s new control system, the AM2000, utilizes the very latest CNC and Digital Servo Drive system. Developed by our control system partner, ANCA, the world leader in CNC Tool and Cutter Grinders. ANCA was one of the pioneers of CNC Technology, beginning manufacture in 1974, and today is one of the world’s most respected CNC developers.

The AM2000 provides the following benefits:

  • Single processor architecture gives high processing speed and improved reliability. Data need not be transferred from the user interface processor to the machine control processor. One processor handles all functions without compromising speed and performance.
  • Touch screen interface is a more “natural interface” for the operator, eliminating the need for an external pointing device.
  • The USB support allows the user to connect a large range of consumer devices such as USB flash disks, external hard disks, printers, digital cameras etc.
  • TECHNI online support allows for remote monitoring, diagnostics and support.
  • Network backup including intranet access and file transfer to a workstation.

Standard Features

The Intec-G2® Series has many unique features that make it one of the most advanced water jet cutting machines available today.
All of the features which are not standard may be added as options at any time, either with the original purchase or at some time in the future.

Mechanical

  • The Intec-G2® is built to the highest tolerances and offers optional 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 0.05mm (0.002”.)
  • The drive system is a robust and unique design providing super-fast cutting speeds and traverse speeds of almost 17.5 m/min (700”) per minute, with high acceleration and deceleration rates while capable of maintaining high tolerances. Designed specifically for the harsh abrasive waterjet environment, the high precision stainless steel band and high friction pulley system are virtually impervious to the airborne abrasive. It is a simple technology providing high accuracy due to a friction drive having zero backlash.
  • Tech-Sense to monitor the cutting head and pause the program prior to any blockage, making “Lights Out” operating a reality. This technology will dramatically increase your profitability by reducing scrap, increasing up-time, reducing labour, and minimizing consumables.
  • Fully enclosed bellows that are double stitched and vulcanized ensure absolute protection of the linear bearings and drive system for the life of the machine.
  • Highest quality German made machine grade linear bearings. A Servo “Z” axis with convenient controls at the cutting head allows fast and efficient Stand-off Height setting.
  • Crash Sensing Break Away Head to prevent damage to the nozzle assembly, focusing tube, nozzle tube or the machine in the event of a crash of the cutting head into a fixture, material part, or any other item. The head incorporates a spring-loaded adjustable sensor switch to detect any overload of force upon the head.
  • Adjustable Water Height Control for Submerged Cutting to rapidly raise or lower the main tank water level to submerge the material for underwater cutting. On most abrasive applications, underwater submerged cutting offers almost silent cutting and is less messy, especially when piercing materials.
  • A Stainless Steel Apron covers the front loading area to ensure no damage to the tank. This will keep the machine looking like new for many years.
  • The latest AM2000 Servo Controller System delivers maximum acceleration with ultrahigh 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 handwheel.
