Aquajet’s Aqua Cutter 750V
Aquajet showcased its newest hydrodemolition robot—the Aqua Cutter 750V—at Conexpo 2023 The new model launches Aquajet’s revolutionary patented Infinity oscillation that moves the water jet in an infinity — or Figure 8 — pattern, removing more concrete in a single pass while reducing shadowing, eliminating the risk of pipe holes and providing an ideal bonding surface.
As with all Aqua Cutter Robots, the 750V cleans and descales rebar without causing microfracturing. It also maintains exceptional horizontal, vertical and overhead reach, making it suitable for a wide variety of concrete removal tasks, such as renovation and bridge and road repair.
As part of the revolutionary design, the Aqua Cutter 750V also includes an upgraded version of the Evolution Control System, allowing operators to cut shapes and remove concrete at different depths in the same pass. A visual status light shows the state of the machine with different colors, allowing operators to easily see when the machine is working correctly, when it needs attention, and when automatic functions or the engine have stopped.
Another key feature is remote start and stop of the diesel engine through radio remote control, as well as automatic shut down if there’s no activity for a certain amount of time, saving battery power.
The 750V also offers a new level of performance with Aquajet’s precision drive. This technology provides highly accurate hydraulic movements, eliminating the inconsistencies that compromise the result. In automatic mode, the robot’s lance is highly controlled and always keeps the water jet in the ideal position, which is key to achieving a perfect Hydrodemolition result.
The 750V is compatible with Aquajet’s Ecosilence high-pressure pump that supplies the water to run the machine and provides a cost-effective option for transport and storage. The 20-ft (6m) purpose-built, insulated container includes the pump, large-capacity diesel engine, and control system, with a convenient storage area for the robot and accessories.
