Roctec Nozzles

KENNAMETAL ROCTEC® APX NOZZLES

The next-generation nozzle that outperforms all other conventional tungsten carbide nozzles.

The new Kennametal APX ROCTEC® nozzles provide 20 percent greater nozzle life than the industry-leading ROCTEC® 500 waterjet series, which already significantly outperforms other conventional tungsten carbide nozzles. With the APX series nozzles, waterjet shops can take on even more challenging, complex jobs and run at faster production speeds and longer production periods. ROCTEC® APX is a next-generation nozzle designed to meet these requirements.

Kennametal ROCTEC® APX nozzles have a 20% longer lifespan than the industry-leading ROCTEC® 500 waterjet series. It also provides a more consistent and precise cutting performance. More importantly, it reduces waterjet machine downtime and improves overall operational efficiency.

Performance Advantages
  • Consistency: Uniform bore growth maintains identical cutting accuracy and tolerance levels.
  • Reliability: Eliminates premature nozzle failures and scrap parts that blocks the nozzle’s cutting performance.
  • Accuracy: Maintains accuracy throughout waterjet cutting cycles.
  • Superior performance: Highest possible cutting-edge quality.
  • Operational efficiency: Less machine downtime and longer nozzle lifespan

Ideal Industry Application

APX nozzles integrates better with the advancing technology in pumps and cutting heads. They are great for precision cutting applications in aviation, aerospace, automotive, defense and medical industries where long, uninterrupted cuts or close tolerances have to be maintained for long periods to maintain parts integrity or minimise expensive scrap from premature nozzle failure.

ROCTEC 500 NOZZLES


Trusted waterjet abrasive nozzle for consistent, accurate cutting. 


Roctec-500_1.JPGRoctec-500_2.JPG

Kennametal ROCTEC®  abrasive waterjet nozzles are made from composite carbide, a tungsten carbide-based material made by the Rapid Omindirectional Compaction (ROC) process. These ROCTEC® 500 nozzles resist high heat and are extremely durable for waterjet cutting. 

Performance Advantages
  • Wear resistance:
    • 24 times greater than conventional tungsten carbide/cobalt nozzles in ASTM B-611 Abrasion Slurry Test.
    • 2.3 times greater than tungsten carbide/cobalt in ASTM G-65 Wheel Abrasion Test.
  • Consistency: Superior bore growth  against ROCTEC® 100  improves cutting accuracy and tolerance levels.
  • Superior performance: Faster cutting speed & greater dimensional accuracy against ROCTEC® 100 and tungsten carbide/cobalt nozzles. 
  • Operational efficiency: Less machine downtime and longer nozzle lifespan against ROCTEC® 100 and tungsten carbide/cobalt nozzles. 

ROCTEC 100 NOZZLES

Industry workhorse, fit-for-use performance.

Kennametal ROCTEC®  100  nozzles are made from composite carbide, a tungsten carbide-based material made by the Rapid Omindirectional Compaction (ROC) process. These ROCTEC nozzles resist high heat and are extremely durable for waterjet cutting. Compared to Standard tungsten carbide nozzles, ROCTEC®  100  nozzles provides superior cutting perforamnce and demonstrates wear resistance of 2.5 times greater than tungsten carbide/cobalt nozzles. The ROCTEC®  100 composite carbide nozzles is the enabler for today's modern waterjet abrasive machinery.

Performance Advantages
  • Longer nozzle lifespan 
  • Better jet stream patterns and increased cutting speed velocity
  • Lesser downtime
  • Greater dimensional cut accuracy and precised cutting
  • Superior cutting performance.
