This 5'X8' Mid Rail Gantry system features one abrasivejet cutting head and an abrasive removal system.  Abrasive removal systems automatically remove spent garnet from the waterjet catch tank, reducing downtime for tank clean out.  The Mid Rail Gantry is available in many sizes, 5'X5' to 24'X13'.

The Mid Rail Gantry waterjet system is available in a wide range of sizes, from 5'x5' (1500 mm x 1500 mm) to 24'x13' (7300 mm x 3900 mm). 

Capable of cutting complex parts from virtually any material, this workhorse water jet 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 Mid Rail Gantry supports multiple cutting heads and can be powered by any Jet Edge waterjet pump.

The Mid Rail Gantry utilizes the Aquavision® Di 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.

Optional mirroring capabilities make it possible to cut part cycle time in half.
