Jet Edge Introduces EDGE X-5 5-Axis Water Jet System: 5-Axis Water Jet Cutting System cuts taper-free 
and beveled parts from virtually any material.

The manufacturers say that their EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet system cuts complex taper-free and 3D parts from virtually any material. Featuring their Permalign® EDGE technology, the EDGE X-5 is capable of cutting chamfers, weld bevels and sophisticated 3D parts such as impeller blades.

The EDGE X-5 features an industrial PC controller designed specifically for 5-axis waterjet cutting. The AquaVision Di® Controller’s open architecture design gives operators the freedom to fine-tune programs from any CAD/CAM/nesting software, utilizing standard G&M code. The system's Intelligent Work Envelope automatically adjusts depending on the angle of the cut to protect the operator, material, and system components.

The EDGE X-5 is designed to provide years of dependable service in harsh industrial environments. Its rock-solid design separates the motion system from the catcher tank, eliminating vibration and ensuring maximum part quality. 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 by heavy metal covers with brush seals and positive air pressure.

he EDGE X-5 is available in a wide range of sizes, from 5’x5’ (1525 mm x 1525mm) to 24’x13’ (7515 mm x 3365 mm).  It is powered by a Jet Edge waterjet pump.  Jet Edge offers the widest selection of pumps in the industry; 30-200hp (22-149kw), 60,000-90,000 psi (4100-6200 bar) hydraulic intensifi­er and direct drive pumps are available.
