THE RANGE OF USES FOR HIGH PRESSURE WATER HAS EXPANDED BROADLY
A couple of decades ago, many operations people did not even know of waterjet cutting. Today, the range of uses for high pressure water to clean, trim and cut materials has expanded broadly as new industries developed unique applications for their processing needs.
CUSTOM APPLICATION OR CUSTOM CONFIGURATION?
When thinking of custom, it is important to break it down into 1. Custom Application and 2. Custom Configuration even though they are closely aligned.
Custom applications consider high pressure water as a unique method to perform a processing function that is currently performed via a different method. Specific applications include surface preparation such as paint stripping and degreasing, but also slitting, piercing unique materials, contour shape cutting, food processing and more. In any one of these instances, high pressure might replace an acid dip, sand blasting, knife trimming or a secondary operation performed by hand. The Custom Application analysis considers the cost and quality of performing the application and contrasts it against the use of high pressure water. Jet Edge consults with companies across a broad spectrum of industries on how to cut and clean unique materials as well as how to use high pressure water to perform various processes.
Custom Configuration focuses on customizing the equipment around the processing application being performed. Generally, when you get to Custom Configuration of the equipment, the goal is quality, throughput, and safety. What water pressures are best to use? Do I want multiple heads to perform a function? Are there other system features like 5-axis motion, component nesting, lights out cutting, laser mapping, shuttle loading/unloading system that improve both quality and productivity?

JET EDGE IS A CUT ABOVE
UNMATCHED PRECISION & ACCURACY
Turn to Jet Edge when accuracy and speed really matter. Jet Edge Motion Systems isolate the cutting head from the catcher tank so noise and vibration do not transfer. This isolation of the tank ensures Jet Edge’s industry-leading accuracy and precision over the full life of the equipment. Applications requiring high tolerance, speed and operator efficiency will benefit greatly from the capabilities offered by the Jet Edge range of Motion Systems.
FULL LINE PROVIDER
Jet Edge is one of the few waterjet equipment companies that manufactures both its motion systems and pumps. This ensures seamless operation in the system between the pump and the motion controls and means you never get caught on service between manufacturers. Visit our accessories page to learn about the rest of the environmental systems Jet Edge makes available for your system including Abrasive Hoppers, Chillers, Abrasive Removal, Closed Loop Systems and more.
RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
Whether you are water jet cutting or abrasive cutting in 2 dimensions or 3 dimensions with a 5-axis cutting head we have the solution. Our Mid Rail and High Rail Motion systems when paired with our full range of Jet Edge Intensifier Pumps, excel across industries including steel distribution, custom manufacturing, food processing, robotic trimming, glass cutting, stone detailing, surface preparation and more. Cutting, slitting, cleaning, trimming along with other specialty applications are regularly performed with our pumps and motion systems.
Jet Edge offers a menu of options for enhanced productivity. Lights out cutting enables machine operation without the direct supervision of a machinist. Multiple cutting heads increase productivity. Remote pump start allows pump control from the main system controls. Redundant intensifiers allow you to service your pump without bringing your system down. Load/unload systems, multiple cutting heads, heigh sensing, laser mapping, 5-axis cutting, robotic swivels, robotic integration and more allow you to design your system for the optimum productivity for your manufacturing system.
INDUSTRY LEADING CONTROL SYSTEMS
Utilizing IGEMS CAD/CAM software and an Aquavision DI fully networkable industrial PC controller, Jet Edge Motion Systems offer an enjoyable user experience. The system’s interface and commands make it easy to import or crate CAD files and programs. The optional Nesting Module provides Multi-sheet Nesting, common cutline nesting and unlike parts cutting from a single sheet to maximize material use. During operations, users are offered visibility and access to machine code via a full-featured handheld pendant.
