Mid Rail X3 (original) with Logo - Jet Edge Waterjets

The Edge X-3, 3-axis, single carriage waterjet cutting machine excels at high-speed waterjet cutting and abrasivejet cutting. Boasting ±0.001″ linear positional accuracy over 12″ (304 mm) per axis, ±0.001″ repeatability (bidirectional) and ±0.003″ renishaw ballbar tests of squareness and straightness over 24″ (608 mm), you never having to worry about precision again.

Mid Rail X5 (original) with Logo - Jet Edge Waterjets

The Edge X-5, 5-axis, single carriage waterjet cutting machine gets the call when complex contoured cutting is required. Featuring the new Permalign Arrow SL cutting technology, the Edge X-5 opens the door to cutting a host of specialty alloys to near-net shapes with taper free, beveled edges up to 60°.

Jet Edge Dual Carriage Menu Pic - Jet Edge Waterjet Systems (2)

The Edge Dual Carriage, allows you to deploy two 3-axis cutting heads, two 5-axis cutting heads or even one of each, doubling your throughput. Each carriage operates independently, double teaming a single part or cutting two like parts simultaneously. Additional features like lights out cutting and IGEMS nesting software pile on the productivity.

WHAT MAKES THESE MID RAIL WATERJETS SO SPECIAL?

Jet Edge starts with a heavy-duty Cross Beam Gantry and rigid side rails to eliminate any flexing in the system. Precision anti-backlash recirculating ball screws, linear bearings, hardened precision ground ways coupled directly to AC brushless servo motors with absolute encoders drive the cutting accuracy. Critical bearing components are protected by labyrinth seals and positive air pressure (not flimsy bellows that wear and tear) to keep the drives free of debris that might compromise accuracy. The catcher tank is isolated from the motion system so no vibration from the cutting surface is transferred to the cutting head which would cause striations on the part edge.

The Advantages of a Jet Edge Mid Rail Motion System

Mid Rail Systems have become the industry standard in water jet cutting with a number of competitive options out there.
But before you commit, consider the Jet Edge advantages.
