Jet Edge Inc. (St. Michael, Minn.) has introduced its new Mid Rail Gantry waterjet system. It features an 8-ft by 13-ft (2.4m by 3.9m) work envelope with an exposed tank that accommodates overhead loading. It comes standard with one abrasivejet cutting head; a second cutting head can be added to increase productivity. The system is ball-screw-driven for greater accuracy. Its heavy-wall tubular steel construction reportedly eliminates vibration and increases longevity. The machine uses an industrial PC controller and can be configured so that all three axes are fully programmable (z-axis is 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 brush seals.
