Michael Waltrip Racing recently installed Jet Edge’s new EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet. MWR cuts more than 1,000 parts for each of their Sprint Cup Cars.

Jet Edge, Inc., a manufacturer of ultra-high pressure water jet systems, announced its new corporate video, showing now on Jet Edge’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/jetedgewaterjets.

Featuring a behind-the-scenes look inside Jet Edge’s 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility in St. Michael, Minn. U.S.A., the video includes an overview of the waterjet manufacturer’s capabilities and products as well as testimonials from three Jet Edge customers from across the United States.

In the video, Jet Edge Spokesman Jeff Schibley explains how water is pressurized up to 90,000 psi to create a powerful cutting stream that can cut precise parts from virtually any material, from huge steel parts to intricate stone inlays. Because of their versatility, Jet Edge waterjets are used in nearly every industry around the world.

The video also highlights how Jet Edge customers are using waterjet technology to solve complex manufacturing challenges.
