Jet Edge Inc. (St. Michael, MN, US) has debuted its latest generation of Mid Rail Gantry waterjet systems, capable of operating up to four abrasive jet or water-only waterjet cutting heads for increased productivity. The system features ±0.001-inch linear positional accuracy (over 12 inches) per axis and ±0.001-inche repeatability (bi-directional). Moving elements are supported on THK linear ways, precision ball screws are directly coupled to servomotors and critical motion components are protected with metal covers, brushes, labyrinth passages, lip seals, and high-volume, low-pressure filtered air. Jet Edge notes that the Mid Rail Gantry separates the motion system from the waterjet cutting table, eliminating vibration and maxizing part quality. Motion is controlled with Jet Edge’s Aquavision Di industrial PC controller, which guides the user through the process from job setup to production. Available in a range of sizes, from 5 by 5 ft (1500 by 1500 mm) to 24 by 13 ft (7300 by 3900 mm), the Mid Rail Gantry comes standard with one abrasivejet cutting head, but can be equipped with up to four cutting heads.  An optional mirroring package allows waterjet operators to cut large parts twice as fast. A Jet Edge UHP waterjet pump offers pressures of 36,000 psi, 60,000 psi and 75,000 psi.
