Waterjet cutting technology is one of the fastest growing major machine tool processes in the world due to its versatility and ease of operation.
There are virtually no limits to what waterjets can cut, which is why companies of all kinds and sizes are realizing greater efficiency and productivity by implementing UHP waterjets in their operations.
Since Flow first invented abrasive waterjet technology in the early 1980s, the technology has evolved rapidly. Decades of research have led to the development of waterjets that do more and cost less. Here’s how Flow waterjets can benefit your business:
Unmatched Versatility Flow waterjets enable you to cut a variety of applications with ease. Whatever the shape, dimensions, or material, our easy-to-use software makes the job easy.
Expanded Capabilities Whatever your business — automotive, aerospace, stone and tile, tool and die, gaskets, fabricator, or job shop — you can cut metal, stone, plastics, composites, glass, ceramics, rubber and more. Zip through materials up to 8 inches thick with no heat-affected zone and superior edge quality.
Reduced Material and Production Costs Flow waterjets require minimal fixturing and tooling so you can save valuable time on your shop floor. Waterjets cut accurate, clean edges that allow for tight nesting and reduced scrap — saving you money through greater material utilization.
Complements Existing Technology Many job shops add waterjets to their operations alongside other cutting technologies such as EDM, laser, milling and plasma. While each shop has its own requirements for cutting projects, most are finding waterjets to be a tremendous asset to their operations — enhancing both productivity and profitability.
