Jet Edge's High Rail Gantry Waterjet System produces complex parts out of virtually any material. Its overhead design allows full access to the work envelope and raises the critical components out of the water jet process environment.
The High Rail Gantry waterjet's stress-relieved steel fabricated frame provides unparalleled rigidity; coupled with rigid honeycombed steel beams, this allows stable but fast operation. Moving elements are supported on THK linear ways. Precision ballscrews are directly coupled to servomotors.
The XY mechanical components are totally protected from the abrasivejet environment by a lip seal system. This system, which uses brushes, labyrinth passages, lip seals, and high-volume, low-pressure filtered air to protect critical motion components, provides significantly longer service life compared to conventional bellows arrangements.
Jet Edge High Rail Gantry Systems are the most versatile ultra-high pressure (UHP) waterjet and abrasive cutting systems on the market. They cut virtually any material and can grow with your business.
Industry Leading Precision and Accuracy!
+/- 0.001" Linear positional accuracy (over 12") - Per axis
+/- 0.001" Repeatability (Bi-directional)
0.0004" Backlash - maximum
Sturdy overhead gantry design ensures lasting precision.
Motion components are kept up high out of the harsh process environment and are protected by metal covers and lip seals versus bellows that can puncture or tear. Clean filtered air blower fans provide positive pressure around the ball screws.
The motion system is separated from the catcher tank, eliminating vibration and ensuring maximum part quality.
Multiple cutting heads and drills can be added to increase productivity.
Can be exanded in place as your business grows.
750 IPM Contouring and Rapid Positioning (460 volt)
Easy to load with a forklift or overhead crane.
Cuts virtually anything!
Jet Edge has been at the forefront of designing and manufacturing ultra-high pressure waterjet pumps and motion systems since the technology came on line for industrial applications. We take our unique client relationships seriously and are committed to providing configuration solutions that optimize your specific cutting applications in the environment you work in.
Our systems are especially suited for heavy duty, high volume applications where speed and accuracy combine to meet your production and customer goals. Our blue collar approach to durability means 24 hour shifts and lights-out weekend cutting are normal course, delivering equipment that boasts the lowest cost of ownership over the life of the equipment. And, since we manufacture both the pump and the motion system, you never get caught between a rock and a hard place with system integration and warranty coverage.
Jet Edge takes great pride in the range of industries our equipment supports. You will see us in steel distribution centers, industrial manufacturing, automotive and aerospace precision cutting, plastics, rubber, tool and die production, mining, food, fabrics along with many more industries. Our willingness to custom engineer solutions to satisfy specific needs, makes us the go-to waterjet technology supplier.
