Do More with Your Water Jet Cutting Machine

Your Jet Edge precision water jet cutting machine can do a lot more than just cut parts.

With the addition of a Jet Edge Robotic Waterjet Swivel or Electric Drive Waterjet Swivel, your waterjet can be quickly transformed into an incredibly powerful 55,000 psi (3800 bar) precision waterjet blasting machine.

Adding an affordable waterjet swivel can create a new source of revenue for your waterjet shop by allowing you to take in new types of work.

With a waterjet swivel, you can blast away paint and coatings, remove valuable material for reuse or recycling, scarify granite, texture surfaces, clean parts and much, much more.  All with the same machine that you waterjet cut parts on.

Electric Drive Waterjet Swivel

Jet Edge's Electric Drive Waterjet Swivel is an ultra high pressure (UHP) cleaning tool that is mounted to the Z axis of a waterjet motion system.  It allows UHP water up to 55,000 psi (3800 bar) to be supplied to a rotary manifold.  An electric motor rotates the rotary manifold with a drive belt. The rotating rotary manifold produces a cleaning pattern from multiple orifices. The Electric Drive Waterjet Swivel is capable of operating at varied speeds.

Pneumatic Robotic Waterjet Swivel

Jet Edge's Pneumatic Robotic Waterjet Swivel is an air driven rotary tool that can operate with UHP water up to 55,000 psi (3800 bar).  The pneumatic swivel includes a pneumatic motor, a rotary swivel, and a rotary swivel shaft with a belt causing the orifice manifold to rotate.  The rotary orifice manifold contains multiple orifices that are arranged to produce a spray pattern.
