Jet Edge has introduced the large-format Mid Rail Gantry Waterjet System.
Jet Edge Inc.’s (St. Michael, Minn.) new large-format Mid Rail Gantry Waterjet System features a 21-ft by 13-ft (6.4m by 4m) work envelope with an exposed tank that can accommodate overhead loading. The system comes standard with one abrasive-jet cutting head. An optional second cutting head can be added to increase productivity. The system is ball-screw-driven and has heavy-wall tubular steel construction to minimize vibration. The PC-based controller can be configured in such a way that all three axes are fully programmable (the z-axis is optional). Other features include direct-coupled AC brushless digital servomotors and single or double carriages. The system also comes in 8-ft by 13-ft (2.4m by 4m) format.
