The Idro line’s high-precision ground rack and pinion X and Y axes and ball-screw-driven 5.9” (150 mm) Z axis make it one of the most accurate waterjet systems available.  It maintains a cutting tolerance +/- 0.004” (0,1 mm/m), and repeatability accuracy tolerance of +/- 0.001” (0,025 mm) and supports a contouring and rapid feed rate of 0-1575 ipm (0-40000 mm/min.)  Motion components are protected by steel covers with labyrinth lip seals to ensure lasting performance.

The Idro line is equipped with programmable contact height sensing and comes standard with one 5 axis cutting head; a second 5 axis or 3 axis cutting head can be added.  Other standard features include a stainless steel tank, automatic safety guards with clear windows on front and back, and a dredge conveyor for abrasive removal. Its many options include a rotating axis for pipe cutting, fire jet etching system, a drill and twin shuttles.  Free software updates are included for the life of the machine. The Idro line’s monolithic design expedites installation and makes it easy to relocate if necessary. Its rigid fixed upright bridge structure can be moved out of the way for forklift or crane loading.
