A Reminder to Wear Hearing Protection When Operating Your Water Jet System

At Jet Edge, we want you to be able to hear the beautiful sounds of life - crashing waves, rustling leaves, songbirds, music, a child's first word.

Please remember to wear hearing protection when operating and maintaining your waterjet system. You also can reduce your system's noise level by waterjet cutting parts underwater or by raising the water level to touch the bottom of your work piece.

Read the safety section of your waterjet equipment manual and take advantage of our free waterjet training at Jet Edge headquarters in St. Michael, Minnesota.  Training also can be arranged at your facility (inquire for pricing and scheduling).

Waterjet Shops Making Frequent Low Pressure Pierces Advised to Install Dual Pressure Valve to Save Time and Money

If your waterjet shop needs to frequently raise and lower water pressure to make low pressure pierces, do yourself a huge favor and try out a Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valve.

Jet Edge's patented Dual Pressure Valve allows waterjet operators to raise and lower water pressure independent of the water jet pump.  This saves time and reduces wear and tear on the pump.

The Dual Pressure Valve can also be used to run multiple waterjet cutting systems at different pressures from a single pump.

Creative Edge Master Shop in Iowa has dramatically reduced downtime and maintenance costs since installing Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valves.  Read their amazing story here.

The Jet Edge Dual Pressure Valve can be used with any manufacturer's waterjet pump.

What do Fish, Apple Pie, Croutons, and Fruit Cocktail Have in Common? All Are Cut With Water Jet!

We have a lot to celebrate here at Jet Edge waterjets in Minnesota!

First of all...tomorrow is the Fishing Opener in Minnesota and that's practically a holiday in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

And if that's not reason enough to whoop it up, today is National Apple Pie Die, National Crouton Day and National Fruit Cocktail Day!  Sounds like a trip to the grocery store and bait shop is in order.

But don't worry, you won't find a "Gone Fishin" sign up in our waterjet parts and service department. We are always there for you 24/7/365 days a year, even if that means we have to put down our fishing pole.

We wish our Minnesota waterjet customers a successful fishing opener...and we wish everyone a Happy National Apple Pie Day, Happy National Crouton Day and Happy National Fruit Cocktail Day!

All of these food items can be safely cut with a Jet Edge ultra high pressure waterjet.

Okay, it's a Northern, not a walleye, but it sure
was fun going fishing on Gull Lake in Minnesota
with our international distributors.

Yes, you can cut bread with waterjets
without it getting soggy!

Slicing apples with UHP waterjet is a breeze.

There may be waterjet cut cherries in your fruit cocktail.

Water Jet Cutting Foam Pool Noodle at 75,000 PSI

After a long Minnesota winter, we're ready for summer here at Jet Edge waterjet systems!

We had some fun in our test lab water cutting this foam noodle at 75,000 psi.

As you can see, water only waterjet is fantastic for cutting foam.  It cuts without heat so it doesn't melt the foam, leaves a very small kerf and does not smash the material.

If you have a foam cutting application that could benefit from waterjet, contact us today to find out how Jet Edge waterjets can help you increase productivity and cut costs.
