Mid Rail Gantry Waterjet Cutting System

Capable of cutting complex parts from virtually any material, this workhorse water jet system is designed to provide years of dependable service in harsh industrial environments. Its sturdy design separates the motion system from the catcher tank, eliminating vibration and ensuring maximum part quality.

The Mid Rail Gantry water jet cutting machine utilizes the AquaVision Di 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 metalcovers with brush seals and positive air pressure.

Available in many sizes, from 5'x5' (1500mm x 1500mm) to 24'x13' (7300mm x 4000mm), the Mid Rail Gantry supports multiple cutting heads to maximize productivity. Optional mirroring capabilities make it possible to cut part cycle time in half. Optional Permalign EDGE cutting head technology eliminates taper and cuts bevels to 55°.

A Cut Above the Competition

Like all Jet Edge waterjets, the Mid Rail Gantry waterjet system is made with pride in the U.S.A!

Cut Faster with X-Stream Pressure!

Jet Edge's 90,000 psi X-Stream water jet pumps achieve much faster cutting speeds and drastically lower operating costs compared to traditional 60,000psi pumps, enabling users to increase productivity and reduce part costs.

The X-Stream water jet pump produces 50% more pressure than a 60,000psi water jet intensifier pump, resulting in a 40-50% increase in productivity for many materials. The X-Stream supports a 75,000psi continuous operating pressure. Compared to a 60,000psi water jet pump, typical operating pressures of 75,000psi use 30% less water, 30% less power, and up to 50% less abrasive, resulting in a 40% reduction in operating costs. They typically reduce taper by up to 0.001". Available in 100hp and 50hp models.
