Jet Edge Precision Water Jet Cutting System on Exhibit at FABTECH 2010, November 2-4, Atlanta


ST. MICHAEL, Minn. (August 12, 2010) - Jet Edge, Inc., a leading manufacturer of ultra-high pressure waterjet systems, will showcase its latest water jet cutting innovations at FABTECH 2010, Nov. 2-4 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Look for Jet Edge in Booth 3906.

Jet Edge will exhibit innovative precision waterjet cutting products, including its 90,000 psi (6,200 bar) X-Stream waterjet intensifier pump technology and Mid Rail Gantry precision water jet cutting machine. Jet Edge technical experts will be available to answer questions about water jet cutting applications.

Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry Waterjet System

Capable of producing complex parts out of virtually any material, the Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry features an exposed tank that easily accommodates overhead loading. It comes standard with one abrasivejet cutting head; a second cutting head can be added to increase productivity. Optional mirroring capabilities make it possible to cut part cycle time in half.

The Mid Rail Gantry is ball-screw driven for higher accuracy. Its sturdy heavy-wall tubular steel construction eliminates vibration and increases longevity. The Mid Rail Gantry utilizes an industrial PC controller and can be configured so that all three axes are fully programmable (Z optional). It also 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. The Jet Edge Mid Rail Gantry waterjet machine is available in many sizes, including 5'x5', 5'x13', 8'x5', 8'X13', 21'x5'and 21'X13'.

X-Stream xP90-100 Waterjet Intensifier Pump

Jet Edge's 100hp X-Stream xP90-100 waterjet intensifier pump is capable of producing 90,000 psi and supports 75,000 psi continuous operating pressure. The X-Stream achieves much faster cutting speeds and drastically lowers operating costs compared to traditional 60,000 psi pumps, enabling users to increase productivity and reduce part costs.

The X-Stream produces 50% more pressure than a 60,000 psi intensifier pump, resulting in a 40-50% increase in productivity for many materials. Compared to a 60,000 psi pump, typical operating pressures of 75,000 psi use 30% less water, 30% less power, and up to 50% less abrasive, resulting in a 40% reduction in operating costs. The X-Stream is capable of producing flow rates of 1.45gpm and supports up to a .017" orifice. Its fittings and tubing are rated for 100KSI. The X-Stream is backed by nearly 10 years of extensive research and development in hyper-pressure technology. It also is available in a 50hp model.
