AKS Cutting Systems | water-cut X4 Waterjet Cutting System

High-performance, high-accuracy ball-screw design for the most demanding applications.

The AKS water-kut X4 Waterjet Cutting System is industry standard in premium, high accuracy, high performance, high production, waterjet cutting. The water-kut X4 is a CNC x-y programmable waterjet cutting system that combines the highest technology, precision and performance with over 100 years of AKS superior machine building experience. water-kut X4 was originally designed by MC Machinery, a subsidiary of MITSUBISHI, and improved upon by AKS engineers in the U.S.A.

It is designed and manufactured to the highest machine tool standards as the premium platform for industry leading high precision, high performance and durability. It uses all premium ball screw drives on all axes achieving the highest positioning accuracies of motion of any waterjet cutting system on the market. The AKS water-kut X4 provides superior motion accuracy and precision resulting in the most accurate cut parts available using waterjet cutting technology.
