During IMTS, Jet Edge will perform live 5-axis abrasive waterjet cutting demonstrations on its premiere 90,000 psi (6200 bar) EDGE X-5™ 5-axis waterjet with Aquavision Di control and Closed Loop Filtration System.

EDGE X-5 5-Axis Waterjet

Jet Edge’s EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet cuts precise taper-free parts from virtually any material. The system is capable of cutting sophisticated 3D parts such as impellers and bevels up to 50°. This workhorse waterjet system is designed to provide years of dependable service in harsh industrial environments. Its sturdy design separates the motion system from the catcher tank, eliminating vibration and ensuring maximum part quality. The EDGE X-5 utilizes an industrial PC controller. It is ball-screw driven for optimal precision and features direct-couple AC brushless digital servo motors and single or double carriages. Critical bearing components are protected with heavy metal covers with brush seals and positive air pressure. The Jet Edge EDGE X-5 waterjet machine is available in many sizes, from 5’x5’ (1500 mm x1500 mm) to 24’x13.’ (7300 mm x 3900 mm) An optional second cutting head can be added to double productivity.

Jet Edge X-Stream Waterjet Intensifier Pump

Jet Edge’s 100hp, 90KSI (75kw, 6200 bar), X-Stream xP90-100 waterjet intensifier pump is capable of producing 90KSI (6200 bar) and supports 75KSI (5200 bar) continuous operating pressure. The X-Stream achieves much faster cutting speeds and drastically lowers operating costs compared to traditional 60KSI (4100 bar) water jet pumps, enabling users to increase productivity and reduce part costs.

The X-Stream produces 50% more pressure than a 60KSI (4100 bar) intensifier pump, resulting in a 40-50% increase in productivity for many materials. Compared to a 60KSI (4100 bar) pump, typical operating pressures of 75KSI (5200 bar) use 30% less water, 30% less power, and up to 50% less abrasive, resulting in a 40% reduction in operating costs. The xP90-100 is capable of producing flow rates of 1.45gpm (5.49 L/m) and supports up to a .017” (.43 mm) orifice. Fittings and tubing are rated for 100KSI (6900 bar). The X-Stream is backed by nearly 10 years of extensive research and development in hyper-pressure technology. The X-Stream also is available in a 50hp (37kw) model.

Waterjet Closed Loop Water Filtration System

Jet Edge's Waterjet Closed Loop Filtration System eliminates the need for a drain by filtering and reusing water. A closed-loop filtration system prevents the introduction of hazardous materials into drainage systems, protects the waterjet pump, maximizes orifice life and reduces water/sewage costs.
