Jet Edge 5-Axis waterjet cuts precise 3D parts from virtually any material

June 20, 2014 – Jet Edge, Inc., a manufacturer of ultra-high pressure waterjet technology, has a 5-axis precision waterjet cutting system. The 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 EDGE X-5 utilizes 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. The Jet Edge 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). An optional second cutting head can be added to double productivity.
