Edge X5 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting Machine



with Aquavision DI Controller

Jet Edge’s Edge X-5 features 5-axis waterjet cutting that is capable of bevel cutting to 60°. Complex 3-D parts, including impellers and gears, can be cut in the hardest materials with a taper-free finish. Controlled with the fully-networkable Aquavision DI, the system is optimized with multiple heads, nesting software, laser surface mapping, and lights-out cutting. Coupled with a Jet Edge UHP Pump, your system is optimized for your environment.
