Jet Edge Inc.'s new Mid Rail Gantry Model MR513 cutting machine can cut material up to 1.5 m x 4 m (5 ft x13 ft),  and is sized for fabricators, machine shops and stone and tile shops. It cuts complex parts from virtually any material without creating a heat-affected zone (HAZ).

The machine comes standard with one abrasive jet cutting head. A second cutting head can be added to increase productivity. Optional mirroring makes it possible to cut large parts twice as fast.

The Mid Rail Gantry waterjet systems are available in a wide range of work envelopes, from 1.5 m x 1.5 m to 7.3 m x 4 m (5 ft x5 ft to 24 ft x13 ft). The waterjets utilize an industrial PC controller and can be configured so that all three axes are fully programmable (Z optional). They feature 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 machine is powered by a Jet Edge waterjet intensifier pump. Jet Edge claims it has the widest range of waterjet pumps on the market, from 25-280 hp, including 36KSI (2500 bar), 60KSI (4100 bar) and 90KSI (6200

By Kip Hanson

Thick packets of work instructions, job travelers, tooling lists and part drawings are a common sight in most shops. Everyone from the receptionist to the head engineer participates in printing this small forest’s worth of paper, while operators and quality control people struggle to make heads and tails of it all. Then along comes an engineering revision or customer change request and everyone runs around like chickens with their heads cut off, swapping paperwork and redlining drawings. There has to be a better way.
