STM RobotCut MJ The ultimate, flexible, two- and three-dimensional waterjet cutting with and without abrasives

3D RobotCut waterjet cutting systems are universal systems for cutting with pure water and with abrasive water. The advantage of the system is in the flexibility of the 6-axis robot with its high tracking accuracy. In combination with the waterjet tool, this provides an economical 3D system for many new cutting tasks.
