Flow Waterjet Cutting Products
Waterjet cutting systems are the
world's most versatile machine tools. Flow systems cut virtually any
shape in a single step with edge quality that usually requires no
secondary finishing. They're the most productive solution for cutting a
wide range of materials from 1/16 inch to over 8 inches thick. And Flow
is the only firm in the industry which can offer both ultrahigh-pressure
intensifier and HyPlex direct drive pumps,
ensuring our customers get the pump that is right for them and their
unique application. Whether you machine high volume, short run, or
prototype parts, a Flow system is the choice that will keep you
competitive. Here's why:
No Other Tool Cuts or Machines a
Greater Variety of Materials
From glass to stones to composites and metals, nothing cuts and machines
a greater variety of materials than an abrasive waterjet.
Their versatility is unmatched.
and Fixturing Is Complete In Just Minutes
Because side forces are virtually non-existent when cutting with a Flow
abrasive waterjet, the time required for setup
and fixturing is minimal. So, you can move
quickly from job to job — cut 1/2 inch aluminum in the morning, 2 inch
glass in the afternoon, and 6 inch stainless steel in the evening.
Different Jobs Don't Require Different
Abrasive waterjet cutting is accomplished by
software-controlled, robotic motion systems — not hard
tooling — so there are no costly, time-consuming tool changes
required to accommodate an infinite variety of shapecutting.
Cut with Multiple Heads and Increase
The cool-cutting process of Flow abrasive waterjet
systems enables you to increase throughput by stacking raw material and
cutting multiple parts in a single pass. Running multiple cutting heads
simultaneously further increases productivity.
Quality Eliminates Costly Secondary Finishing
From steel to composites, cut net and near-net parts. Abrasive waterjets cut with erosion, rather than shearing or
heat, so they produce exceptional edge quality without inducing
heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses. Raw materials maintain their
structural integrity; deburring and other
secondary finishing are usually not required.
You'll Enjoy Raw Material Savings
Because abrasive waterjets cut with a narrow kerf and produce no heat, you can tightly nest parts
to get the most from raw material.
Compliments Existing Technology
Today, there is a trend by many job shops to add waterjets
to their operations as a complement to 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.
