Aquablast Ltd. Installs Jet Edge 5-Axis Waterjet System at its U.K. Headquarters

Longtime jet edge distributor plans to showcase waterjet cutting capabilities, launch waterjet operation and maintenance training facility.

Jet Edge, Inc. proudly announces that its longtime U.K. distributor Aquablast Ltd. has installed a Jet Edge EDGE X-5® 5-axis waterjet cutting system at its headquarters in Beccles, Suffolk, United Kingdom.

Capable of cutting sophisticated 3D parts and bevels up to 60° from virtually any material, Aquablast’s Jet Edge 1500x4000 mm (5’X13’) abrasive waterjet system is designed for 24/7 industrial use and maintains +/- 0.025mm  (0.001") linear positional accuracy over 300 mm (12") per axis and +/- 0.025mm (0.001") repeatability (bi-directional).          

We are very pleased to offer an ‘in-house’ European showcase for Jet Edge’s precision waterjet cutting equipment. Having a precision system in-house will allow us to demonstrate the capabilities of the Jet Edge 5-axis waterjet system to prospective customers from the U.K. and Europe. We also will be able to provide waterjet operation and maintenance training for companies that want to add this technology to their business model.

Donald Blair, Aquablast managing director

Aquablast has represented Jet Edge waterjets for more than 20 years and has extensive knowledge of ultra-high pressure waterjet technology and its countless applications.

In addition to representing Jet Edge, Aquablast also manufactures its own line of waterjetting equipment and carries a wide range of mobile waterjet systems and support products.

The company also offers precision waterjet cutting services, mobile waterjet cutting and surface preparation services, and safety training.

Aquablast is authorized to sell and service Jet Edge’s full product line in the U.K., including Jet Edge’s CE-marked 5-axis and 3-axis waterjet motion systems, its hydraulic intensifier and direct drive pumps, and portable cutting systems and water blasting equipment.

Jet Edge offers the widest range of waterjet pumps in the industry, from 36-280hp, in 2500 bar (36KSI), 4000 bar (60KSI) and 6200 bar (90KSI) models, electric and diesel.

We are excited to have a waterjet demonstration showroom and training facility in the U.K.. When customers see Jet Edge’s capabilities in person, it’s much easier for them to visualize how waterjet can help them solve their manufacturing challenges, reduce costs and increase productivity. Plus they can benefit from Aquablast’s extensive waterjet applications expertise and hands-on knowledge of Jet Edge products.
