MultiCam’s 3000 Series CNC routers are loaded with standard features normally associated with more expensive machines. Rigid all-steel plate frame construction and the all-steel, moving-gantry design allows machining of large parts while maintaining a small, space-saving footprint. The ATC (automatic tool change) option gives the user maximum machining flexibility.
Designed for a wide range of medium-duty panel processing applications, the 3000 Series machines are the perfect solution for companies looking for both value and high-performance in a CNC router.
The industry challenge was to build a rigid, reliable CNC Machine platform with excellent performance at an entry level price. Over 15 years of cutting-edge, industry-leading design experience resulted in MultiCam’s 1000 Series Router, a machine that offers a price and performance breakthrough in CNC Router design.The MultiCam 1000 Series Router has more standard features than any other machine in its class, and is the perfect solution for sign manufacturing and applications requiring value, performance and price in a CNC Router.

MultiCam 3000 Series Waterjet cutting system is an affordable, easy-to-use, production cutting solution designed for manufacturers that want the ability to cut a wide variety of materials.

There are multiple factors that determine the precision of the overall waterjet stream. For quality at the cutting head only, these features should be considered for successful abrasive waterjet cutting:
Abrasive mixing tube length
A longer abrasive mixing tube generates a more consistent waterjet stream. The optimum mixing tube length ranges from 3”-4”.
Alignment of components
In order to avoid unnecessary damage of consumables by the waterjet stream, precisely machine and fit the orifice, mixing chamber, and abrasive nozzle perfectly together.
The inside of the abrasive nozzle should be machined to perfectly align with the waterjet stream.
The edge quality in waterjet cutting solutions is dependent on the speed that the cutting head travels at. Its correlation is simply a causal relationship as a negative linear regression. A slower cutting speed enables superior edge quality. There are 5 varying levels of different finishes: extra coarse, coarse, medium, fine and extra fine. See the image below for a visual representation.
Extra Coarse: It is a rough cut, measuring quality at about 20%. At this level, the WaterJet can cut at the fastest speed, and produce at the lowest cost. The primary use for extra coarse edges is for material separation.
