STM waterjet cutting systems at a glance
Why you always perform better with STM waterjet:
STM customers value the highest level of operating convenience and personal advice. In the end, however, it is always about cost optimisation and energy saving. And this is precisely where the strength of our modular range and our individual solutions lies.
With the STM modular system, the customer gets everything he needs and nothing he doesn’t. This saves costs and also space. By precisely adapting to the respective customer requirements and their individual manufacturing processes, we can keep the acquisition costs low. In addition, STM Waterjet focuses on the longest possible service life of the systems.
In development, STM pays particular attention to innovative modular system technology combined with connectivity, intuitive operation and high availability of STM waterjet cutting systems.
STM waterjet manufactures CNC-controlled gantry systems in all dimensions and for all applications as standard. Functionality and economy as well as ease of operation/maintenance and transportability are the determining factors in the design.
The design and price-performance ratio of our waterjet cutting systems also enable small and medium-sized companies to enter the technology. Each system can be used for pure water, abrasive or combined cutting processes. This means that all machines can cut a wide range of materials without retooling. Parallel cutting (2D) with up to twelve cutting heads is also possible. Our systems are manufactured in series, pre-installed, tested and usually delivered containerised.
Our waterjet cutting systems have a compact, user-friendly design consisting of three elements: cutting table, control unit and high-pressure pump. These three units are perfectly linked visually and functionally.
Regardless of the model, all structural components and screws are made of wear-resistant stainless steel or aluminium. Characteristic features are the flat underbody and the smooth side walls with concealed linear guides and a high-pressure tube carried in the axles.
The fully digital drive consists of brushless AC servo motors with multi-axis NUM, Eckelmann or Siemens CNC control. The associated software runs on MS-Windows and only requires a standard PC.
Drawing is done directly in the cutting programme, which can also be used to continuously adjust the cutting pressure and abrasive quantity. The entire IT technology is integrated into a freely movable control panel from which all processes are centrally controlled. This guarantees maximum operator comfort, control and safety.
The standard equipment also includes the abrasive dosing system with abrasive pressure conveying and intermediate dosing. When it comes to high-pressure pumps, only the best systems such as BFT high-pressure pumps are good enough for us. Depending on the requirements, they provide up to 6000 bar with a connected load of 11-75 KW and 1 – 10 litres per minute.
- The high-pressure pump switches off automatically after cutting
- Robust lightweight construction that does not require a special foundation
- Low power consumption of the control unit (3 kW)
- Low use of compressed air, as the abrasive dosing system only delivers when the level is at minimum
- Stepless pressure regulation for maximum energy efficiency
The waterjet cutting system of unlimited possibilities
STM PremiumCut is a high performance system compatible with all our cutting heads. In addition, it is possible to install several cutting heads on the PremiumCut.
The versatile and robust special design
STM PremiumCut IFC (Independent Frame Construction) systems are characterized by their extremely robust design. In contrast to the structure of the normal systems, IFC systems have a free-standing frame structure for the STM Premium guidance of the X and Y axes and a modular structure of the tub elements.
The all-rounder among the waterjet cutting machines.
The STM MasterCut is the perfect all-rounder for upscale cutting tasks. This cutting system offers the possibility to create sophisticated 2D cuts.
The economical entry into the world of waterjet cutters
This waterjet cutting system provides an economical entry into the
World of waterjet cutting. The EcoCut is a reliable, low-maintenance cutting system with an extremely attractive price/performance ratio.
The waterjet cutting system for highest cleanliness
STM Cube has a hood cover and thus offers even more safety, noise insulation and ideal splash protection. The safety door can be opened upwards and backwards to allow loading by crane.
The specialist for highest precision and extremely delicate cuts:
This micro waterjet cutting system enables the machining of extremely delicate and highly functional components from any material, and with record cutting accuracy. This makes the MicroCut the ultimate all-round solution for advancing miniaturization.
The modular all-round system for recycling and cleaning water and abrasive.
With the STM OneClean modules, water and abrasive can not only be separated, but also cleaned to a large extent and reused for the cutting process.
STM BasicClean is the economical entry into efficient abrasive rinsing and offers a fully automatic and space-saving system with BigBag for collecting the settled abrasive sand.
