    With the new ConSus abrasive mixing unit, waterjet cutting specialist ConSus ANT enables the stationary use of Water Abrasive Suspension (WAS) systems. A continuous suspension jet provides a more efficient cutting performance at lower pressure compared to conventional Water Abrasive Injection Systems (WAIS).
    In many industries, materials research regularly develops new materials for which suitable machining processes must be found. For a large number of materials waterjet cutting with WAS proves to be technically superior and economically more profitable than conventional cutting techniques. Compared to WAIS, the ConSus suspension jet operates at less than half the pressure and up to three times as fast. The user receives thin kerfs without hardening or material deformation. ConSus demonstrates its strengths, particularly at increased cutting depths.

    The ConSus WAS system operates with a two-phase cutting jet of water and abrasive with a precisely adjustable flow rate. The more focused WAS jet cuts precisely through even the hardest materials with a thickness up to 1m, while still maintaining a very good surface structure. ConSus operates at a maximum pressure of 1500 bar, even at enormous material thicknesses, which significantly reduces energy consumption and component wear. With a worldwide patented airlock process, ConSus also offers advantages in terms of work safety with noise levels 70 percent lower than an injection jet operating at 5000bar.
