Rail Gantry Waterjet
Edge, Inc. has introduced its new Mid Rail Gantry Waterjet.
The Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry Waterjet System features an 8- x 13-foot work
envelope with an exposed tank that easily accommodates overhead loading,
according to manufacturer. It comes standard with one abrasivejet cutting head
- a second cutting head can be added to increase productivity. The Mid Rail
Gantry is ball-screw driven for higher accuracy, and its sturdy heavy-wall
tubular steel construction eliminates vibration and increases longevity,
reports Jet Edge. The Mid Rail Gantry utilizes an industrial PC controller, and
it can be configured so that all three axes are fully programmable (Z
optional). It also features direct-couple AC brushless digital servomotors and
single or double carriages. Critical bearing components are protected with
heavy metal covers with flexible lip seals. Like all Jet Edge products, the Mid
Rail Gantry is made in the U.S.
