Waterjet manufacturer Jet Edge Inc., St. Michael, Minn., has acquired Calypso Waterjet Systems of Dallas, Texas.
Founded in 1992, Calypso Waterjet Systems was a manufacturer of waterjet cutting systems before its departure from the water jet industry in early 2009. Its products include waterjet cutting machines, abrasive removal, closed loop water, and automatic height sensing systems; nesting software; plastic water jet cutting bricks; bulk abrasive feeder tanks; and replacement parts for waterjet intensifier pumps, cutting heads, and waterjet tables.
Jet Edge President Jude Lague said he plans to reintroduce many of Calypso's products under Calypso's brand names.
