with with Aquavision DI Controller

There are many benefits to a High Rail Gantry Waterjet. First of all it 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. The Edge X3-HR, 3-axis cutting system can be used for straight waterjet cutting or abrasive cutting. The option to utilize multiple sub-Z cutting heads for waterjet cutting or abrasivejet cutting, incorporating automated load/unload systems for the highest efficiency levels achievable with water jet cutting, multiple table sizes, lights out cutting and more, makes the Edge X3–HR the most customizable waterjet cutter on the market. Pair it with a Jet Edge HERO Series UHP Pump and you’re prepared to cut some serious volume. Click on the links to learn more about Custom Applications and Custom Configurations.
