From Jet Edge
As a custom fabricator serving primarily the mining and water treatment industries, Stainless Steel Technology routinely transforms massive sheets of stainless steel and aluminum into Goliath-sized mechanisms that range from towering tanks to enormous quench chambers.
The Lively, Ontario, company was pushing its laser cutting system to its thickness limits when it placed an order in 2005 for what would become one of Canada's largest waterjet cutting systems, a monster 10-foot by 24-foot (3m by 7.3m) High Rail Gantry manufactured by Jet Edge of St. Michael, Minnesota.Â This powerful machine can cut through anything with a supersonic stream of water that is pressurized up to 60,000 psi and mixed with a garnet abrasive.
