EDGE X-5® 5-Axis Waterjet System

The EDGE X-5 is capable of cutting sophisticated 3D parts from virtually any material.

This aluminum blisk was cut from 1/2" aluminum.  Note the excellent edge quality right off the machine - no HAZ.

This 1/2" aluminum sample part demonstrates the EDGE X-5's ability to cut bevels and chamfers.

This honeycombed fiberglass composite part was cut at 78,000 PSI.  Note the excellent edge quality.

A second cutting head can be added to double productivity.

Designed specifically for 5-axis waterjet cutting, the powerful and flexible Aquavision Di Controller features an open architecture design that gives operators the freedom to fine-tune programs from any CAD/CAM/nesting software, utilizing standard G&M code. 

The EDGE X-5 includes a full-featured hand-held pendant for operator flexibility.

Motion components are protected with metal covers, brush and lip seals and blower fans, rather than bellows that can puncture and tear.

The EDGE X-5 features AC digital brushless servo motors, absolute encoders, SERCOS; preloaded anti-backlash recirculating ball screws and linear bearings with hardened precision ground ways.  

We separate the cutting table from the motion system, eliminating vibration and heat migration resulting in maximum part quality.

The Jet Edge EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet cutting machine is available in many sizes, from 5’x5’ (1500 mm x1500 mm) to 24’x13.’ (7300 mm x 3900 mm). An optional second cutting head can be added to double productivity. 

The EDGE X-5 5-axis waterjet cuts precise taper-free parts from virtually any material.  The system is capable of cutting sophisticated 3D parts such as impellers and bevels up to 60°.   This workhorse waterjet 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 EDGE X-5 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.
