Introducing the Quantum NXT Range from Techni Waterjet

The TECHNI Waterjet™ Quantum NXT™ water jet pump is a revolutionary concept in waterjet cutting. It incorporates a servo motor directly enveloping a high load, precision ball screw. The ball screw directly houses the ceramic plungers, which reciprocate back and forth to create the pumping action, in much the same way as a hydraulic cylinder works on an intensifier waterjet pump. The infinite control of the servo motor and precision of the ball screw, enable extremely accurate control over the output pressure and volume of the water displaced, and eliminates pressure spikes when deadheading. This infinite control gives an operator the ability to program virtually any pressure and flow rate from zero to full capacity, while only using the power displaced at the cutting head.
The TECHNI Waterjet™ Quantum NXT™ is by far the most efficient waterjet pump available on the market, delivering “real” efficiency gains and “real” savings. The Quantum NXT™ only ever uses the power required for the cutting process. This means that regardless of whether the cutting head is open or closed, or the pressure or flow is reduced, there are no additional power losses.

Real Efficiency — Real Savings

The TECHNI Waterjet™ Quantum NXT™ is by far the most efficient water jet pump available on the market, delivering real efficiency gains and real savings. Direct drive crankshaft waterjet pumps have traditionally been marketed for their efficiency, however, they are only efficient while the cutting head is open and the full capacity of the pump is being used. When the head closes while the material is being loaded, unloaded, and re-loaded, or while the machine positions for the next cut, almost all of the energy is directed over a relief valve, literally sending power, water and money down the drain. Intensifier water jet pumps are inherently less efficient due to the power required to simply run the hydraulic system. They also use a large percentage of their power regardless whether cutting or idle, as the hydraulic oil is passed over a relief valve in the hydraulic system. The Quantum NXT™ only ever uses the power required for the cutting process. This means that regardless of whether the cutting head is open or closed, or the pressure or flow is reduced, there are no additional power losses.

Control & Diagnostics

Ultra High Pressure water can very quickly cause major failure of high pressure components, if leaks go undetected. The precise control of the Quantum NXT™ allows rapid detection of leaks and assists the user to identify the location of the leak, thereby saving valuable time and minimizing the chance of a simple leak turning into a major breakdown. The diagnostic control will help determine the following common fault conditions and help identify the fault location; Orifice or Cutting Head, Fitting or Tubing, High Pressure Seals, Dump Valve, Low Pressure or High Pressure Check Valve The Quantum NXT™ software diagnostic screen gives a quick and easy-to-read analysis of the pump performance, with an in-time graphical representation of the relationship between pressure, flowrate, maintenance and cutting speeds. This will help the operator determine the correct set up for a given application.

About the Technology – The Future in Waterjet Cutting

The TECHNI Waterjet™ Quantum NXT™ (Electric Servo Pump) incorporates core “direct servo” technology that was first applied by NASA for the Space Shuttle Program by replacing old-fashioned hydraulic cylinders with new, highly compact, efficient, reliable and infinitely controllable Servo Linear Actuators. This same style actuator is used today in many high end machine tools and presses replacing inefficient hydraulic systems. Similarly, TECHNI Waterjet™ is the first water jet pump manufacturer to utilize “direct servo” technology in an ultrahigh pressure waterjet pump and has developed patented designs to integrate the core technology into the most efficient, reliable and controllable ultra-high pressure (UHP) waterjet cutting pump.
