It's Paul Bunyan Day - Let's Go Up North and Meet Precision Waterjet Concepts!

Paul Bunyan Day is a Giant Day to be a Minnesotan!

We are so proud to make Jet Edge waterjet systems right here in Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes and home to that Giant Lumberjack and his trusty sidekick Babe the Blue Ox.

In honor of Paul Bunyan Day, let's head up north to Pequot Lakes, Minnesota to meet Jet Edge customer Precision Waterjet Concepts.  Precision Waterjet Concepts could have started their business anywhere, but they chose the beautiful Brainerd Lakes area of Minnesota, one of Paul Bunyan's favorite stomping grounds.  They run one of the cleanest, most efficient 5-axis and 3-axis waterjet shops we have ever seen...and they heat their Northern Minnesota waterjet shop with hot water recycled from their waterjets!

Jet Edge UHP Waterjets Eco-Friendly for Marine and Shipboard Use

Jet Edge may be 1,200 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, but our UHP waterjet technology is helping our world's oceans by providing an eco-friendly cutting and blasting alternative for the world's marine and oil and gas industries.
Gyra Jet waterjetting lance.

We offer numerous UHP water jet products for marine and shipboard use, including hand-held waterjetting lances, portable Deckblasters and custom engineered UHP cleaning systems, as well as linear and pipe cutting abrasive jet cutters, and precision CNC waterjet equipment.  We even offer modular water jet intensifier pumps for use in tight spaces.

Jet Edge modular water jet intensifier pump.
Jet Edge UHP waterjetting equipment is an excellent alternative to sandblasting.  UHP waterjets quickly blast away coatings and corrosion on ship decks, hulls, and holds without creating nasty toxic dust that pollutes the oceans.

We're especially proud that we helped stop the Gulf of Mexico oil spill by working with our sister company Chukar Waterjet to rapidly develop an underwater waterjet system that successfully blasted away hydrates that were clogging a containment system 5,000 feet under water.

At Jet Edge, we're not afraid of a challenge.  Contact us today to find out how we can help you.

Our goal is to help our customers succeed.

Jet Edge Water Jet Systems Cut Donuts in a Jiffy

In the spirit of National Doughnut Day, aka National Donut Day, we water jet cut doughnuts with a Jet Edge waterjet cutting system.

Water jet cut doughnuts and coffee.
The waterjet did a fantastic job cutting the doughnuts, leaving a very clean edge and no crumbs.  You may think a water jet would get the donuts wet, but it travels so fast that the donuts were just fine.

As a comparison, we cut some doughnuts with a knife. The waterjet cut faster and better.  The knife-cut doughnuts were crumbly and not nearly as appealing as the water jet cut doughnuts.

Ultra High Pressure water jet is commonly used for commercial food cutting applications. Waterjet is sanitary, never needs sharpening or cleaning, and cuts without heat.

Jet Edge would love the opportunity to work with your company to integrate waterjets into your production equipment.
