Contact Height Sensor



Overcome Fluctuations in Material Flatness

Jet Edge’s Contact Height Sensor contacts the work piece and senses nozzle height to assure consistent cut quality and optimum speed. The sensor arm can either ride on the plate or have infinite programming for the time it is in contact and raised. Jet Edge’s AquaVision® Di controller software also provides feature avoidance for the Contact Height Sensor. This protects the height sensor and cutting head by automatically providing a tool path that will not allow the cutting head to pass over a previously cut part which can tip up after being cut.
