Kloeckner Metals UK increases its Water Jet cutting capacity

At Kloeckner Metals UK we are pleased to announce that we have commissioned a second Water Jet machine to accommodate growing customer demand.

Investment in the Water Jet Sweden Premium Model NCP 4020 Multi Head Water Jet cutter will allow us to significantly expand our capacities and help us meet the wider range of 2D cutting requirements.

The major advantage of water jet cutting is that no heat is transferred into the component through the cutting jet, meaning there is no heat affected zone (HAZ) and no metallurgical changes in the processed material. Water jet cutting allows efficient production, high component accuracy and excellent surface quality at the cut edge. What’s more, with water jet cutting no pollutants are created during the cutting process so it is also environmentally friendly.

The new machine will allow us to cut a range of Stainless Steel materials, whilst achieving close machined tolerances and delivering the high quality products Kloeckner is known for.

If you’re interested to know more, the full capabilities of the NCP 4020 are:

• Cutting up to 200mm thick material
• Cutting Stainless Steel, Duplex and Super Duplex, Carbon Steel and Composites
• Max length 4010mm
• Max width 2010mm
• Cutting tolerance +/- 0.25mm
• Twin heads allows us to cut 2 parts simultaneously
• Shorter lead times due to Ultra-High pressure 6200 Bar which allows us to increase cutting speed whilst maintaining a high quality cut
• Advanced CNC cutting control allows a high quality of cut to be maintained even when changing directions, allowing complex parts to be cut accurately. The part finish can be configured to customer requirements from a rough finish all the way through to ultra-fine.

We are very excited about doubling our Water Jet cutting capacity and the new levels of speed, efficiency and quality this will mean for our customers. Quickness and quality of services are paramount here at Kloeckner and we always endeavour to keep expanding our services provision to meet customer demand.
