Jet Edge's EDGE X-5® 5-axis waterjet cuts precise taper-free parts from virtually any material. The system is capable of cutting sophisticated 3D parts such as impellers and bevels up to 50°. This workhorse waterjet 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 ball screw-driven system features direct-couple AC brushless digital servo motors, providing the best repeatability in the industry at ± .001".
Critical bearing components are protected with heavy metal covers with brush seals and positive air pressure. Productivity enhancing options include a second cutting head with mirror cutting capabilities, a pneumatic drill for pre-piercing materials that are prone to delamination, automatic submerged or above-water cutting capabilities, and a proprietary laser plate mapping feature that allows precise nozzle-to-plate standoff.
The EDGE X-5 features Jet Edge's Aquavision® Di industrial PC, which gives operators the freedom to fine-tune programs from any CAD/CAM/nesting software, utilizing advanced HMI features and/or standard G&M code. The EDGE X-5 waterjet machine is available in many sizes, from 5'x5' (1500 mm x1500 mm) to 24'x13' (7300 mm x 3900 mm).
During FABTECH, Nov. 9-12 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Jet Edge will perform live 5-axis abrasive waterjet cutting demonstrations on its X-Stream-powered EDGE X-5® 5-axis waterjet with Aquavision Di control and Closed Loop Filtration System. The waterjet manufacturer also will show its new low-cost BOSS-CUTTER™ 3-axis waterjet system, its new 55,000 psi (3800 bar), 30HP iP60-30 waterjet intensifier pump, and its premiere X-Stream pressure intensifier pumps.
