Waterjet Suited for Metal Service Centers and Aerospace



Jet Edge's EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet system is designed and built for heavy-duty industrial use in waterjet shops that demand lasting performance, precision and accuracy. The system is available in large format sizes up to 24' x 13', making it suited for metal service centers.

This waterjet system cuts precise 3-D parts such as impellers and bevels up to 50°. "It is used by manufacturers around the world to perform some of the most demanding waterjet applications, from waterjet job shops specializing in aerospace and defense work to large machine shops, metal fabricators and metal service centers," said a company spokesperson. Service center applications include cutting bevels for weld preparation, waterjet cutting parts to near net shape, cutting exotic materials, and HAZ-free and slag-free cutting.

Designed with harsh environments in mind, the EDGE X-5's sturdy design separates the motion system from the catcher tank, eliminating vibration. The EDGE X-5 utilizes an industrial PC controller. It is ball screw driven for optimal precision and features direct-couple AC brushless digital servomotors and single or double carriages. Critical bearing components are protected with heavy metal covers with brush seals and positive air pressure.

The Jet Edge EDGE X-5 waterjet machine is available in many sizes, from 5' x 5' (1,500 mm x 1,500 mm) to 24' x 13' (7,300 mm x 3,900 mm). An optional second cutting head can be added to double productivity.
