Jet Edge has introduced the Idro line five-axis precision water jet cutting machine, which is said to be capable of cutting virtually any material.

The Idro line is available in three sizes: 5.5ft x 6.5ft nominal (1,700mm x 2,000mm), 5.5ft x 13ft nominal (1,700mm x 4,000mm) and 6.5ft x 13ft nominal (2,000mm x 4,000mm).

It features the IKC five-axis water jet cutting head, which is capable of making inclined cuts and controlling kerf to ensure optimal part quality.

The IKC’s capabilities include a maximum angle of +/-60deg and dynamic precision from +/-0.2 to +/-0.5mm/m, depending on the tilt of head.

The Idro line’s ground rack and pinion X and Y axes and ball-screw-driven 5.9in (150mm) Z axis are said to provide the machine with high accuracy.

It maintains a cutting tolerance of +/- 0.004in, repeatability accuracy tolerance of +/- 0.001in and supports a contouring and rapid feed rate of 0-1,575ipm (0-40,000mm/min).

Motion components are protected by steel covers with labyrinth lip seals to ensure lasting performance.

The Idro line is equipped with programmable contact height sensing and comes standard with one five-axis cutting head.

A second five-axis or three-axis cutting head can be added if required.

Other standard features include a stainless-steel tank, automatic safety guards with clear windows on front and back, as well as a dredge conveyor for abrasive removal.

Options include a rotating axis for pipe cutting, fire jet etching system, a drill and twin shuttles.

Free software updates are included for the life of the machine.

The Idro line’s fixed upright bridge structure can be moved out of the way for forklift or crane loading.
