The Techjet-X2® series is the latest in our evolution of innovative products to create a precision, easy-to-operate, safe and highly reliable Waterjet Cutting Machine. The Techjet-X2® is built to the highest tolerances and incorporates Linear Scale Feedback to ensure the highest accuracy of motion in the industry. By mapping the entire cutting area with a laser-calibrated digital encoder, the motion system can deliver positional accuracy of 0.0005” (0.01mm) and high cutting speeds of up to 1000 ipm or 25m/min.
The drive system is a robust and unique design providing super-fast cutting speeds and traverse speeds of almost 1000 inches per minute, with high acceleration and deceleration rates, while capable of maintaining high tolerances

Softec™ Waterjet Software
Every Techjet-X2® comes standard with SOFTEC Water Jet Software. At the "Heart" of Softec is Tru-Cut Technology, a highly sophisticated algorithms database that determines the optimum cutting speeds and machine ramping characteristics. Once you select the material to be cut, it's thickness and surface finish required, the computer will take care of the rest, ensuring the minimum cutting time for any given part.
The Algorithms database was developed with the benefit of over 30 years of waterjet cutting experience from KMT. Through their thorough understanding of the effects of Ultra High Water Pressure, abrasive types and volume, cutting head set ups, corner geometry and the materials to be cut, they can determine the optimum ramping characteristics for any given part.
Softec™ software runs on the very latest in controller technology, the AT2010. Developed by ANCA, one of the pioneers in servo control technology, and a leader in the very demanding “CNC Tool and Cutter Grinder” market, the AT2010 delivers maximum acceleration with ultra high speed feedback to ensure minimum processing time with maximum accuracy and best surface finish. It also incorporates “patented” technology such as the MPG wheel which allows the operator to take the machine along the cutting path, forwards or backwards to any point, simply by winding the hand wheel.
Icon Machine Tool is proud to distribute TECHNI waterjet cutting machines throughout Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
