The Hydro-Jet Eco is described as a high-precision, low cost waterjet cutting system. The unit offers a compact design and cuts virtually any type of material including metal, composites, plastic and more.

Equipped with a software package for quick programming on an integrated PC control with graphical user interface, the waterjet technology features a cold-cutting process that ensures distortion free fabrication, the company says. This pure water and abrasive cutting equipment is said to ensure precise cuts without any heat-affected zone. The working area is 60 ″ × 24″ along with positioning accuracy on the X axis of ±0.001 inches per foot and Y axis of ±0.0007 inches per foot, allowing for complex cuts and small kerf widths for better material use as well as seamless nesting.

The waterjet features a maximum feed speed of 160 ipm with a repeatability of 0.0007 inches per foot. The unit comes with an integrated high-pressure 10-hp pump.
