Edge X-HR High Rail Gantry Waterjet Cutter System



with Aquavision DI Controller

The High Rail Gantry opens the work envelope for easier access, and the overhead design raises critical components out of the processing environment. The isolated motion system and rigid steel beams make this the most accurate waterjet cutter on the market. With 3-axis and 5-axis cutting options, multi-table sizes, and a Jet Edge UHP Pump, you’re prepared to cut some serious volume.
