A Special Message from Jet Edge Waterjet Systems

Water will cut virtually anything...including costs!

Jet Edge's EDGE X-5 5-Axis Waterjet features the Aquavision Di industrial PC controller.

5-Axis Waterjet Cutting System

Jet Edge's EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet system with Aquavision Di controller cuts complex taper-free and 3D parts from virtually any material. Featuring Jet Edge's innovative Permalign EDGE cutting head technology, the EDGE X-5 dramatically increases your waterjet cutting capabilities by allowing you to produce chamfers, weld bevels and sophisticated 3D parts such as impeller blades - all with a taper-free finish.

The EDGE X-5 features an industrial PC controller designed specifically for 5-axis waterjet cutting. The powerful and flexible AquaVision Di Controller features an open architecture design that gives operators the freedom to fine-tune programs from any CAD/CAM/nesting software, utilizing standard G&M code. The system's Intelligent Work Envelope automatically adjusts depending on the angle of the cut to protect the operator, material, and system components.

Like all Jet Edge waterjet systems, the EDGE X-5 is designed to provide years of dependable service in harsh industrial environments. Its rock-solid design separates the motion system from the catcher tank, eliminating vibration and ensuring maximum part quality. 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 by heavy metal covers with brush seals and positive air pressure.

The EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet cutting system is powered by a Jet Edge waterjet pump.  Jet Edge offers the widest selection of pumps in the industry. 30-200hp (22-149kw), 60,000-90,000 psi (4100-6200 bar); hydraulic intensier and direct drive pumps are available.

90,000 PSI X-Stream Waterjet Intensifier Pump
90,000 PSI X-Stream Waterjet Intensifier Pump

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.
