Precision CNC Waterjet Cuts Precise Parts from Virtually Any Material

Jet Edge introduces its latest generation of Mid Rail Gantry waterjet systems.  Designed for heavy duty 24/7 use in industrial environments, Jet Edge’s Mid Rail Gantry waterjet is capable of operating up to four abrasivejet or water-only waterjet cutting heads for increased productivity.

Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry precision waterjet systems lead the industry in precision and accuracy, holding +/- 0.001" linear positional accuracy (over 12") per axis and +/- 0.001" repeatability (bi-directional). Moving elements are supported on THK linear ways, precision ball screws are directly coupled to servomotors, and critical motion components are protected with metal covers, brushes, labyrinth passages, lip seals, and high-volume low-pressure filtered air.

The Mid Rail Gantry separates the motion system from the waterjet cutting table, eliminating vibration and ensuring maximum part quality. Motion is controlled with Jet Edge’s signature Aquavision® Di industrial PC controller. The Aquavision® Di controller’s customized front end guides the user through the process from job set-up to production. Single parts, mirroring, rotation, plate alignment and part arrays (optional) are at the operator’s fingertips.

Available in a wide range of sizes, from 5'x5' (1500 mm x 1500 mm) to 24'x13' (7300 mm x 3900 mm), the Mid Rail Gantry comes standard with one abrasivejet cutting head, but can be equipped with up to four cutting heads. An optional mirroring package allows waterjet operators to cut large parts twice as fast.

The Mid Rail Gantry is powered with a Jet Edge UHP waterjet pump. Jet Edge manufactures the widest range of waterjet pumps in the industry, 36,000 psi, 60,000 psi and 75,000 psi models are available from 30-280 hp.

The Mid Rail Gantry is proudly manufactured by Jet Edge, Inc. in St. Michael, Minnesota, U.S.A. Jet Edge waterjets are used by manufacturers around the world to perform 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.
