Strong Flow With No Abrasive

The situation can exist where you see a strong flow of water out of the Used Abrasive Grommets but there is no abrasive in the stream. This could just be a simple fix, or it could be indicative of a larger problem in your Used Abrasive system.

No Cutting

No Material is being removed while WAZER is cutting. This could either look like a light sanding of the Material in the area that was supposed to cut or no cutting or marking whatsoever. You may also see water spraying everywhere as the Jet exits the Nozzle and sprays off of the Material.

Partial Cutting

Partial Cutting occurs when WAZER partially cuts through your Material, but it fails to fully cut through. You will also see a directed water spray in the direction opposite of the Gantry motion.

Low Used Abrasive Collection Rate

After a Cut you may notice that the amount of Used Abrasive collected in the Used Abrasive Buckets is lower than you would expect. It may be the case that after a Cut, there isn’t any Used Abrasive in the Buckets. This is not normal behavior; there are some things you can do to help improve the Used Abrasive collection of your WAZER.

High-Pressure Leak

When this issue occurs, you will notice water leaking from the High-Pressure Connection on the back of the Pump Box or WAZER.

ERROR: Clean Drain Filters

WAZER indirectly measures the rate at which water is drained to alert you when the Drain Filters are clogging. If you see this message, it is likely that you need to clean your Drain Filters.

ERROR: Add Water to Tank

Similar to the way WAZER monitors your water drain rate, a timer is constantly monitoring the water level in your Tank. If it realizes that the water level is low, it will alert you.

Regenerate Cut File

When preparing your WAZER to cut it may display the error “Incorrect or Wrong Wam Version”. While it might actually be that the file was generated with an outdated version of the software, it can also indicate that there is a problem with either the full sized or micro sd card.
