Robotic Production Technology Inc. introduced a six-axis robot, the AccuTrim WJ-110, with an abrasive water jet for trimming a stainless-steel part, during the International Manufacturing Technology Show, held Sept. 6-13 in Chicago.
The high-pressure nozzle can produce up to 60,000 pounds per square inch of water pressure.
RPT of Auburn Hills, Mich., said the abrasive water trimming will bring water-jet technology to composites and metal trimming.
