The Self-Cleaning System effectively removes debris from the plasma cutting process and deposits it beneath the table into a refuse drawer, which operators can roll out for easy disposal. This heavy-duty system is an operator’s dream when it comes to maintaining a clean, effective cutting table.
The quality of the abrasive has a direct impact on the quality of the cut, which is why AKS waterjet machines are equipped with industrial garnet from GMA Garnet Group, a global leader in the industry.

The company primarily cuts flat plates that will be rolled into pressure vessels and other components for the skids and lifting. Working with carbon steel and stainless steel of varying thicknesses — from 10-gauge up to three inches thick — AG Equipment needed a machine that offers both versatility and precision, according to President Kent Bright.
KMT, the oldest manufacturer of waterjet pumps in the world, has been AKS’ pump vendor for eight years and wanted to recognize the successful partnership, according to Chuck Schmidt, Business Development Manager.
