Leading waterjet technology manufacturer Techni Waterjet introduces its NXT generation of electric servo pumps (ESPs), designed to address the requirements of today’s competitive manufacturing industry.
The Quantum NXT raises the bar for high cutting speeds, reliability and technical superiority, producing 20% more power than previous models.
“With this NXT generation ESP, Techni Waterjet has addressed the challenges of increasing demands for cutting speeds and compatibility by waterjet technology users worldwide,” company director Darren Reukers says.
“Since releasing our revolutionary ESP technology in 2009, we gained a lot of market knowledge and field experience which have been used to develop the NXT generation of ultra-high pressure waterjet pumps.”
By increasing the pump’s power output, Techni enables customers to cut any suitable material at faster speeds, while the improved lubrication and cooling system guarantee durability and low maintenance costs. “The costs for running an old intensifier pump greatly increase from year four,” Mr Reukers explains. “From here it makes business sense to buy a new pump, in particular an ESP which has much lower maintenance costs.”
The two traditional types of waterjet pumps are direct drive and intensifier. Intensifier pumps and ESPs typically require less maintenance than direct-drive models. According to Mr Reukers, a major reason for that relates to the speed at which the plunger reciprocates. At the same pressure setting, a direct-drive pump will stroke more times each minute than either an intensifier pump or an ESP. This places additional strain on seals, tubing and other critical components.
As a consequence, upgrading an intensifier pump or direct drive pump with an electric servo pump reduces costs and resources.
Moreover, the NXT generation high-pressure pump is 20% quieter than previous ESP models and more than 800% quieter than other intensifier pumps on the market. The pump offers multiple head capability for easy connectivity to any waterjet machine, and the integration of on-board diagnostics via the full colour touch screen HMI and optional remote control has further increased the ESP’s industry-leading efficiency within the same compact footprint.
The Quantum NXT is available in a range of pressures and flow rate capacities to suit any waterjet cutting application.
