Water Jet Sweden (WJS) has also shown full commitment during the pandemic so far, enabling the company to adapt several of its products to new market requirements. In addition, a completely new machine concept was presented at EuroBlech: The NC5 Ultra takes another step into the future of modern waterjet cutting.
To introduce the new machine concept, Water Jet Sweden chose EuroBlech as the appropriate setting.
“The trade show also provided an ideal stage for presenting the NC5 Ultra concept,” emphasizes Lennart Svensson, managing director and chairman of Water Jet Sweden. “The show, with its international reach, appeals to visitors from all over the world.”
The presentation was attended not only by the media but also by a large crowd of interested representatives of partners, customers and competitors.
The concept was well received by the trade audience. “We received a lot of positive feedback, and there were interested inquiries throughout the duration of the show,” adds Lennart Svensson.
Next generation waterjet cutting
The NC5 Ultra is a compact and slimmer version of the large FiveX 3D cutter. It is intended for numerous cutting tasks in both 2-D and full 3-D and for almost any type of material. The NC5 Ultra concept is very slim, light and stable thanks to a new design platform. Accessibility and visibility have also been improved.
“We have seen a growing need for advanced options in the waterjet cutting market. With the new machine, we can now also meet future needs as they will occur in most mechanical workshops around the world,” explains Lennart Svensson.
With the NC5 Ultra, Water Jet Sweden is once again expanding its already broad portfolio of cutting systems. The offer ranges from the 2-D entry-level machine to micro-machining and large systems for large and unusual material formats. All plants are covered by the unique five-year performance guarantee.
