SPA Robots - Flexible Cutting Technology
Cutting routines for complicated 3D shapes that would be impossible to punch can easily be programmed with the robot.
The flexibility of Shape Process Automation's robotic systems enable manufacturers to make the most of their capital investment. Trimming programs can easily be changed or added so that several parts can be cut on the same system with virtually no set-up time.
The high-pressure waterjet is used as a tool to cut a wide range of materials. The fine jet is very powerful, with cutting speeds between 100 and 500 mm/s for a variety of automotive carpets and from 300 to 500 mm/sec for headliners. The speed of the waterjet and robot allow the cutting material to remain almost completely dry.SPA JetTool Robotic Waterjet Technology is available in multiple cutting and trimming options (water-only and abrasive) robot trimming (FT Series), gantry table cutting (G Series), enclosed cell trimming (R Series) and abrasive cutting (AB Series).
