It features ballscrew drives and a short-travel, cantilever-style arm to balance the reduced machine footprint. The waterjet’s rigid, sturdy tank design enables it to cut materials ranging from 2"-thick foam to 12"-thick stainless steel.

The Emerald 0612 model offers a larger 2 × 4 ft. cutting envelope. It features ballscrew drives and a cantilever-style arm along with an enhanced tank for additional support. The waterjet is capable of indexing sheets of unlimited length from front to back. According to the company, standard 4 × 8 ft. sheets of material as thick as 2" can be cut more easily.
