Waterjet Shuttle Systems

Jet Edge's High Rail Gantry waterjet shuttle system supports up to 12 water-only waterjet cutting heads.

Jet Edge's Mid Rail Gantry waterjet shuttle system supports up to four water-only cutting heads.

The shuttles are easy to operate.  The waterjet operator simply rolls out the shuttle like a drawer.  Powered shuttles are available.

Jet Edge waterjet shuttles feature our powerful AquaVision Di industrial PC motion controller.

Designed especially for high-volume water-only waterjet cutting applications, Jet Edge Waterjet Shuttle Systems dramatically increase productivity by allowing operators to continue cutting as they unload finished parts.  
Manufactured for industrial use, Jet Edge waterjet shuttles are available in a High Rail Gantry format supporting up to 12 cutting heads or a Mid Rail Gantry format supporting up to four cutting heads.  To operate the shuttle, the operator simply rolls out the top cutting table like a drawer and continues cutting on the bottom table as parts are unloaded. Powered shuttles are also available.
Water-only waterjets cut soft materials such as gaskets, foam, rubber, film, paper, cardboard, carpet, insulation, food and foil.  An abrasive (typically garnet) must be added to cut harder materials such as metal and stone.

A Cut Above
  • Jet Edge Waterjet Shuttle Systems are available in a wide range of sizes; an optional spreader bar allows operators to expand the cutting area beyond the waterjet gantry for cutting large sheets.  
  • The shuttle systems feature Jet Edge’s signature Aquavision® Di controller. The Aquavision® Di is the most advanced motion controller in the industry. It guides the user through the process from job set-up to production. Single parts, mirroring, rotation, plate alignment and part arrays (optional) are at the operator’s fingertips. It is fully networkable.
  • Jet Edge precision waterjet systems lead the industry in precision and accuracy, holding +/- 0.001" linear positional accuracy (over 12") per axis and +/- 0.001" repeatability (bi-directional).
  • Moving elements are supported on THK linear ways, precision ball screws are directly coupled to servomotors, and XY mechanical components are protected by a lip seal system.
  • Critical motion components are protected with metal covers, brushes, labyrinth passages, lip seals, and high-volume low-pressure filtered air.  
  • Jet Edge offers the widest range of waterjet pumps in the industry, 36,000 psi, 60,000 psi and 75,000 psi models are available from 30-280 hp.
