Precision Waterjet Concepts Installs Third Jet Edge Water Jet Cutting System
Jet Edge is pleased to announce that Precision Waterjet Concepts has installed a third Jet Edge waterjet cutting system at its full-service 5-axis and 3-axis waterjet cutting facility in Northern Minnesota. The thriving water jet cutting service now features three 3-axis waterjet systems and three 5-axis waterjet systems.
Precision Waterjet Concepts’ newest Jet Edge system is a 4’x4’ Jet Edge High Rail Gantry equipped with four abrasivejet cutting heads. The system is powered by a 150hp Jet Edge waterjet intensifier pump. The company also has a Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry capable of processing materials up to 8’x13’ and a Jet Edge High Rail Gantry capable of processing materials up to 9’x13’, as well as three 5-axis waterjets which process materials up to 144 x 96 x 36”.

An ISO9001:2008-certified company, Precision Waterjet Concepts serves a wide variety of customers nationwide and cuts virtually any material, specializing in AR Plating and titanium.

Precision Waterjet Concepts has grown an average of 20-30% each year since opening in 2002 and has had to relocate three times to accommodate its growth, said Joe Quaal, company president. In 2008, the company built a state-of-the-art 19,000 square foot headquarters in Pequot Lakes, Minn., designing it especially for the waterjet cutting process and for future growth.

Quaal attributes his company’s success to an overall increase in awareness about waterjet technology as well as to his company’s commitment to quality and its full-service solutions approach that includes CNC programming, intricate 3D cutting, high-volume 2D cutting, CMM inspection, final machining and welding. The company even machines its own 5-axis fixtures on a vertical machining center to ensure parts are cut to customer specification.

Precision Waterjet Concepts originally started as a 5-axis only shop, but added its first Jet Edge 3-axis waterjet system in 2006 after determining that many customers also needed high-volume parts cutting services that were impractical on a 5-axis system.
