Hauppauge, NY (March 17, 2008) -- Bystronic Inc. introduces its Bypump 50 APC (Active Pressure Control) intensifier pump for its line of Byjet precision abrasive waterjet cutting systems. Bypump 50 APC cuts faster at a lower operating cost because of its unique dual cylinder intensifier design. With CNC control for each of the cylinders, Bypump 50 APC is able to maintain a constant pressure without the need for a large, costly pressure accumulator. Maintaining a constant pressure allows the Bypump 50 APC to cut at faster speeds and with less abrasive.
The Bypump 50 APC outputs 1.3 gallons per minute of water, which allows either one head cutting with a 0.016” orifice, or two heads with 0.011” orifices. The high water output allows for economical cutting with 2 cutting heads, while saving electricity versus using a costlier 100 HP pump. If more than 2 cutting heads are required, additional pumps can be added in series, allowing the benefit of redundancy;
if one pump is off-line for maintenance, the other pump can still be producing parts.
