Aquajet launches two new Aqua CuttersPublished 28/12, 2016 at 16:16
Aquajet is launching the new Aqua Cutter 410V hydrodemolition robot, which is a combination of the existing 410A and 710V models. However, the 410V is much lighter and smaller compared to the original 710V, making it ideal for operations, especially in confined areas, such as shafts and furnaces.
The Aqua Cutter 410V has been designed for applications to replace hand lances. Its small size and low weight allow the robot to easily pass through narrow passages, or operate from scaffolding. It can reach all horizontal, vertical and overhead areas up to 4m without support.
The robot has a 3D positioning system that the operator to reach all areas with the front power head. One example is vertical operations along or against the surface.
With its compact design the Aqua Cutter 410V can be operated in confined areas, with retained mobility. For vertical and overhead operations the 410V has a steel mast that can operate at heights up 4m without support, and further with support.
The power control module can be disconnected from the tracked crawler. This allows the crawler-mounted robot to be manoeuvred into inhospitable environments, such as small tunnels and flooded sewer pipes. The robot can be operated from a safe distance with a radio remote control cable ensuring complete control of the robot in all operational movements.
In addition Aquajet has added the Aqua Cutter 710V XL, named Bigfoot because it features a larger footprint than the original 710 and can handle more reaction force. The Aqua Cutter 710V XL has 200mm wider track base and 170mm longer tracks, which gives it 23% more ground area compared to the original 710.
The Aqua Cutter classic control system includes an intelligent sensing control system with no cables or electronic sensors outside the enclosed engine hood. It also contains the 30° EDS roller that keeps a set distance between the jetting nozzle and the concrete to be removed.
The classic control system makes it easy to program the robot and all speeds are set manually with hydraulic valves. It is easy to program and determine the operation width and area thanks to mechanical stoppers on the front roller beam.
