AMS | Abrasive Management System

The integrated solution for automated waterjet cutting.

The AMS abrasive management system controls the entire abrasive supply flow of the waterjet cutting machine from filtering of the abrasive to monitoring the cutting process, ensuring optimised cutting results.

The consumption rate of abrasive is one of the key cost factors for the operation of waterjet cutting units. KMT Waterjet Systems has for a long time been aware how crucial this issue is for its customers. In its efforts to optimise the cutting parameters, the company therefore made the reduction of abrasive consumption one of its key concerns. This resulted in the development of the AMS abrasive management system. The complete pack includes the following components:

  • ABRALINE IV Advanced or Comfort storage and bulk transfer system
  • FEEDLINE V metering system
  • ACTIVE AUTOLINE™ II/PRO or ACTIVE IDE™ II/PRO abrasive cutting heads



Easy to Maintain

Vessel loading areas allow individual 100 lb. bags of abrasive to be loaded through the integrated sieve lid. It is easily accessible and the abrasive can be loaded, even while cutting, by only removing the top cover. The integrated sieve ensures that no contaminated particles may be loaded.

Low Level Alarm

The ADS HOPPER has an abrasive level indicator which uses a weighing mechanism to provide continuous monitoring of the abrasive level. A low-level alarm utilizes a proximity switch to detect the low limit (100 lbs. of abrasive) and will activate a horn alarm to notify user.
No need to stop cutting to add abrasive, just pour it in!
A regulator and manual valve control the air pressure and provide ON/OFF control.
