Jet 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.
