Jet Edge (St. Michael, MN) introduces its latest generation of Mid Rail Gantry waterjet systems. Designed for heavy duty 24/7 use in industrial environments, Jet Edge’s Mid Rail Gantry waterjet is capable of operating up to four abrasivejet or water-only waterjet cutting heads for increased productivity. Features include:
- Industry-leading precision and accuracy, holding +/- 0.001" linear positional accuracy (over 12") per axis and +/- 0.001" repeatability (bi-directional).
- Moving elements supported on THK linear ways; precision ball screws directly coupled to servomotors; and critical motion components protected with metal covers, brushes, labyrinth passages, lip seals and high-volume low-pressure filtered air.
- Maximum part quality and no vibration, since the Mid Rail Gantry separates the motion system from the waterjet cutting table. Motion is controlled with Jet Edge’s signature Aquavision Di industrial PC controller. The Aquavision Di controller’s customized front end guides the user through the process from job set-up to production. Single parts, mirroring, rotation, plate alignment and part arrays (optional) are at the operator’s fingertips.
