Jet Edge’s Spyder Abrasivejet Cutting System is a portable linear and pipe cutting system designed for use in remote and/or potentially hazardous environments. It is ideal for cutting pipelines, steel reinforced concrete, reactor vessels and fabricated metal structures. The Spyder is a pneumatically controlled mobile waterjet system that moves along rigid, flexible or pipe tracks. Its abrasivejet cutting head can be angled for beveling cuts. An optional radius/circle fixture can be added for increased versatility.

  • Suitable for any environment.
  • Cuts virtually any material without heat or flames
  • Pneumatic reversible drive motor
  • Non-ferrous motion components Movement Speed: Varies due to several ranges of gear reducers

Track Options:

  • 3, 5 and 10 linear-foot tracks
  • Low profile, rigid and vacuum tracks available
  • Pipe track: 6–60 inches (152–1524 mm)

Optional Radius & Circle Cutting Fixture:
