Featuring Permalign Arrow SL Speed & Accuracy

There are many benefits to a High Rail Waterjet Machine. 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. Incorporating the Permalign Arrow SL breakthrough 5-axis cutting head technology into your Edge X5-HR system allows you to bevel cut angles to 60° in the hardest materials with a taper-free finish.  Aerospace, contract manufacturing and highly specialized applications companies that require accuracy, repeatability and high machine uptime from their abrasive cutting have found their system.  Click on the links to learn more about Custom Applications and Custom Configurations.
