Jet Edge Inc. is pleased to announce that JACQUET West is installing a second Jet Edge waterjet cutting system at its metal processing facility in Carson, Calif.  The Mid Rail Gantry system is JACQUET’s twelfth Jet Edge waterjet nationwide. 
JACQUET West’s new large-format Jet Edge waterjet system features a 12’x 21’ table which enables the metal service center to process full 8’x20’ or 10’x20’ plates.  Powered by a 60,000 psi 100 hp Jet Edge iP60-100 intensifier pump, the ball-screw driven waterjet system has the best repeatability in the industry at +/- .001”, and features dual independent cutting heads to double production.  The Jet Edge system also has submerged or above-water cutting capabilities as well as height sensing capabilities to react to inconsistent plate height, providing maximum standoff accuracy from nozzle-to-plate.
