Jet Edge Exhibiting Waterjets for Farm Machine Shops at Triumph of Ag Expo
Waterjet Manufacturer Offering New Waterjet Cutting Tables Designed for Farm, Rural Machine Shops
Designed and priced for farm machine shops, Jet Edge’s 55,000 psi FARM-JET® and TACH-JET® waterjets bring the power and versatility of ultra-high pressure waterjet cutting technology to farm machine shops for the price of a new fully loaded 1 ton 4X4 pickup truck, without requiring special electrical service. These powerful machines cut parts from virtually any material without heat or flames, leaving a clean edge free of slag, without producing noxious fumes.
“Until now, if you wanted a waterjet, it meant a six-figure investment and access to 460 volt power,” noted Jude Lague, Jet Edge president. “Now you can own a waterjet for the price of a new truck and you can run it off standard household electric. With a waterjet system, you can create a nice source of additional revenue, and if you need a part fast, you can cut it in minutes instead of waiting for days or weeks to have it fabricated and shipped.”
