Precision waterjet system cuts 3D parts

Designed and built for heavy duty industrial use, Jet Edge’s EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet system is aimed at waterjet shops that demand lasting performance, precision and accuracy. The system is available in large format sizes up to 24x13’, making it ideally suited for metal service centres.

This workhorse waterjet system cuts precise sophisticated 3D 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 specialising in aerospace and defence work to large machine shops, metal fabricators and metal service centres.

Service centre 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 the harshest environments in mind, the EDGE X-5’s sturdy design separates the motion system from the catcher tank, eliminating vibration and ensuring maximum part quality. The EDGE X-5 utilises an industrial PC controller. It is ball-screw driven for optimal precision and features direct-couple AC brushless digital servo motors and single or double carriages. Critical bearing components are protected with heavy metal covers with brush seals and positive air pressure.

Jet Edge EDGE X-5 waterjet machine is available in many sizes, from 5’x5’ (1,500x1,500mm) to 24’x13.’ (7300mm x 3900mm). An optional second cutting head can be added to double productivity.
