The Pedrini Multiwire Jupiter GS200

Pedrini has recently introduced the Multiwire Jupiter GS200, a machine equipped with innovative and advance technology. Available in the 8, 16, 32 and 40 wire models, it is a flexible solution that is ideal for the diamond wire cutting of granite - specifically designed for the simultaneous cutting of slabs with different thicknesses, ranging from 2 to 10 cm.

The Multiwire Jupiter GS200 combines high technology with simple handling and allows for an optimal yield of diamond wire which limits the idle times for their replacement and thickness changing and reduces cutting costs, reports Pedrini.

Additionally, the machine utilizes simple, economic and functional patents to keep each diamond wire at the correct tension, thus allowing a rectilinear trajectory and an easy replacement of the wire. 

KMT Waterjet Systems Inc.’s ultra high pressure (UHP) 90,000-psi/6.200-bar Maximum Power KMT Streamline PRO 125-hp Pump

KMT Waterjet Systems Inc., a leading global manufacturer of Ultra High Pressure pumps and components for waterjet systems, introduces the “fastest cutting, next generation” of waterjet cutting pumps, an ultra high pressure (UHP) 90,000-psi/6.200-bar Maximum Power KMT Streamline PRO 125-hp Pump.

According to the manufacturer, the KMT Streamline PRO 125-hp pump - with the largest 90,000-psi cutting orifice in the waterjet cutting industry, the .016 orifice - delivers the waterjet cutter a reduction in operating time by cutting parts in approximately half the time of conventional 60,000-psi/50-hp waterjet systems, reports the manufacturer, adding that the KMT Streamline PRO 60 is also available in 90,000 psi.

The KMT Streamline PRO 125 produces 1.43 gpm, with cutting capabilities up to 90,000 psi with dual cutting heads using two .011 orifices.

The KMT Streamline PRO Series 125 hp and Streamline PRO 60 hp accommodates a wide range of applications with 5-axis, three-dimensional cutting capabilities using a swivel mechanism - the new KMT Swivel PRO attachment. 

Wood’s Powr-Grip’s P1 Channel Lifter now offered with a new option: a power system to accommodate a compressed air power source

The P1 Channel Lifter, one of Wood’s Powr-Grip’s top selling below-the-hook vacuum lifters, is now offered with a new option: a power system to accommodate a compressed air power source. Built to excel in a manufacturing or fabrication shop environment, the P11104AIRS vacuum lifter employs a venturi-type vacuum pump that allows the lifter to attach three times faster than the company’s standard AC or DC versions of the P1. This translates to quicker cycle times and greater productivity on the shop floor, reports the manufacturer.

The P11104AIRS provides the versatility of manual 180-degree rotation and manual 90- degree tilt movements. Due to its venturi-based power system, the P11104AIRS is less susceptible to contamination from sources commonly found in manufacturing environments than other standard P1 vacuum lifters, according to Wood’s Powr-Grip. It is also capable of operating at temperatures from 0 to 120 degrees F (-18 to 49 degrees C) and at elevations up to 10,000 feet (3048 meters), allowing for use in a broader range of workplace environments. In addition to its versatility, the venturi of the P11104AIRS has no moving parts to wear or require lubrication, thus offering an enhanced service life, reports Wood’s Powr-Grip.

Designed for use with a crane or overhead hoisting system, the new air-powered P1 is slightly lighter than the DC-powered units, weighing 57 pounds (26 kilograms), as compared to the 70 pounds (32 kilograms) of the DC version. According to the manufacturer, this lighter weight makes the P11104AIRS easier for the operator to manipulate and effectively extends the load capacity of the hoisting equipment.
