Bel Air Finishing's Water-Jet machine uses a wet surface treatment process to clean, descale, degrease and smooth in a single operation without chemical or solvents. The process is suitable for build removal and surface finishing of additively manufactured parts.

A pressurized blasting mixture of water and abrasive media can be used to create both desired cosmetic and functional surface finishes,  while removing all excess build material. According to Bel Air, the Water-Jet process is low cost and eco-friendly while providing good performance with high speed and no dust. 

The tabletop model has a 24" × 20" × 24" footprint, and accommodates an automated basket option for processing multiple parts at once.
