Jet Edge’s Edge X-5 waterjet system employs an AquaVision Di controller to cut precise, taper-free parts from almost any material. The 5-axis system can cut 3-D parts such as impellers and bevels up to 50 degrees.
With the motion system separated from the catcher tank, vibration is eliminated. The system, which uses an industrial PC controller, is ball screw-driven and features direct-couple AC, brushless, digital servomotors and single or double carriages. Critical bearing components are protected with heavy metal covers with brush seals and positive air pressure.
The system is available in sizes from 5 by 5 ft. to 24 by 13 ft. An optional second cutting head can be added.
