5-Axis Waterjet Cutting

Go beyond cutting bevels on flat stock — 5-Axis cutting opens up 3‑dimensional cutting abilities at angles from 0° to 90°


Depending on the waterjet system and materials, speeds can be up to 2,000 in/min

Range of Travel

Capacity of 12" to 60" vertical travel on Z-axis


Allows the programming of bevels on the entire part or on certain edges of your parts - ideal for weld prep.

2D and 3D Capabilities

Post processors are available for both 2D and 3D CAM software


Positioning accuracies of ± 0.0166 degrees (± 1 arc minute) make the Infini Winder the most accurate 5-Axis cutting head

Multiple 5-Axis Heads

Up to nine 5-Axis cutting heads can be installed on one cross beam with a single X-Classic controller

Wide Cutting Angle

From 0° vertical to 90° horizontal.

The Apex 60

Putting 5-Axis & Bevel Cutting Within Reach

A compact and fully integrated 5-Axis solution, the Apex 60 allows for 5-Axis cuts up to 60° and taper compensation without a reduction in the 2D work area. By not compromising on quality, the Apex 60 is the most affordable 5-Axis cutting head on the market.

Utilizing over 25 years of research and development, the Apex 60 has been streamlined to put the latest innovations in 5-Axis cutting within reach - all without compromising on quality. Extend your cutting capabilities.

Full 5-Axis Cutting

Cut at an angle as wide as 90°

WARDJet’s unique design for 5-Axis cutting allows for 500,000 encoder counts per revolution for the A and C motors respectively, ensuring the unit can conservatively achieve accuracies of ± 1 arc minute, backlash free motion, with a torque of 39Nm or 345 in-lbs, easily outstripping the competition. WARDJet utilizes 2 harmonic drive actuators, commonly used in precision robotic applications, to ensure that the Infini Winder is a highly accurate and extremely reliable 5-Axis mechanism that meets WARDJet’s stringent requirements.

WARDJet directly couples their tilting axis mechanism to the harmonic drive output flange and the rock-solid crossed roller bearing. The unparalleled backlash characteristics of the harmonic drive mechanism eliminate the slop and play inherent to other designs.

Did you get that? Almost? Let's recap - WARDJet's 5-Axis Cutting heads are engineered to be substantially more accurate than any other 5-Axis cutting head in the industry.

The TC-8 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting Head

Minimize or even eliminate taper with the WARDJet TC-8 5-Axis cutting head.

5-Axis cutting opens up a wide range of applications that can be done on waterjet. As it is still a relatively new technology, from a business standpoint, the profit margins from this type of work can be very attractive.

With recent advances in control and motion technology, 5-Axis CNC waterjet cutting (abrasive and pure water) has become a reality. Where the normal axis on a water jet are named X (back/forth), Y (left/right) and Z (up/down), a 5-Axis system will add an additional A-axis (angle from perpendicular) and C-axis (rotation around the Z-axis).
