Designed for use in remote and potentially hazardous environments, Jet Edge’s Spyder Abrasivejet Radius and Circle Cutting System can be set up on the side of tanks, small vessels and large diameter piping. It is held in place by vacuum cups and features a self-aligning centering pin for fast and reliable setup. Motion components are made from non-ferrous materials, and cutting head manipulators are powered by pneumatic motors, making the Spyder suitable for use in all environments. A master control panel allows operators to control the cutting head manipulators, direction, speed of travel, abrasive delivery and vacuum components from one location.


Suitable for any environment:

  • Cuts virtually any material without heat or flames
  • Pneumatic reversible drive motor
  • Non-ferrous motion components

Easy Set Up:

  • Self-aligning
  • Lighweight suction cup mount
The Spyder includes the radius and circle cutting system, abrasivejet, abrasive hopper, abrasivejet mounting hardware, control panel, remote UHP control assembly and hoses.
For standard operation, it requires:
  • mobile intensifier pump to supply UHP water
  • Air compressor to supply abrasive hopper
  • Hydraulic power to operate support equipment
  • Track (see specifications for track options)
  • Orifices and nozzles to shape UHP water stream
