STM PremiumCut IFC The versatile and robust design

STM PremiumCut IFC (Independent Frame Construction) systems are distinguished by their extremely robust design. Contrary to the construction of the conventional systems IFC systems have a free-standing frame structure for the STM Premium
guidance of the X and Y axes and a modular construction of tank elements. Due to this special construction IFC systems can
be expanded at any time. Tank elements can be added or components used for other cutting processes as required. Even sinking the tank elements into the floor is a possibility. STM PremiumCut IFC systems can achieve a Z-axis clearance of up to 1.200 mm and more.

The advantages are particularly where large-size systems are concerned. Moreover the construction with CNC milled stainless steel tank and massive frame construction also convinces with maximum wear resistance and robustness. The frame of IFC systems is anchored in the floor to achieve the greatest possible stability. Thus it is still possible to cut more than 12 metres long work surfaces extremely precisely. 

Benefits of the PremiumCut IFC Waterjet Cutting System

Stable and precise

The anchorage of the stainless steel frame in the floor guarantees complete stability and the highest precisionas well as wear resistance.

Low operating costs

STM systems are distinguished by their low operating costs. The waterjet cutting systems are designed to use as little compressed air, electricity and water as possible.

Maximum process reliability

Automatic touching and scanning of the workpiece as well as collision protection provide for safe working. STM waterjet cutting systems are able to mark as standard and by means of the laser tracker setting the workpiece up can be done without difficulty.

Flexible and upgradeable

Due to the construction with flexible tank modules IFC systems can be expanded at any time. Even a bridge clearance of up to 1.200 mm and more is possible. Moreover the construction simplifies transportation as well as installation of the system.
