Flow Waterjet Features Breakthrough Waterjet Software at Westec

KENT, WA--(Marketwired - July 28, 2015) - Flow International Corporation, the world's leading developer and manufacturer of industrial waterjet machines for cutting applications, will run live demonstrations of their Mach series waterjets at Westec 2015, in booth 1503. The tradeshow will be held September 15-17, 2015, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA. Flow will feature state-of-the-art technology including the latest in intelligent waterjet software with FlowXpert® 2015.

Simply better programming

Flow's Mach 4 waterjet will be running with FlowXpert 2015 next generation 3D CAD/CAM software. The FlowXpert Software Suite is a robust 3D CAD/CAM platform that expands on the 2D FlowMaster® intelligent Software Suite. The platform includes Design powered by SpaceClaim, an integrated 3D modeling tool with Flow Sequencer. With this release, the integrated CAD/CAM capabilities give users a seamless pathing experience. The integration with Flow Sequencer adds flexibility to users and is designed specifically for waterjet cutting, resulting in faster waterjet programming.

The system that is years ahead

The Mach 4 offers a variety of features unique in the waterjet industry including an expandable modular design, up to 14m (48') in length, allowing customers to increase the size of the cutting area as their business grows. The system's exclusive roller pinion system provides fast, accurate cutting with zero backlash. The system is ergonomically designed to improve operator convenience and productivity with lighting to enhance work piece visibility, efficient abrasive removal, and easy access to material and parts with full four-sided accessibility. At Westec, the Mach 4 will combine Flow's HyperJet® pump, rated at 94,000 psi and Dynamic Waterjet® XD, high-precision flat stock and 3D cutting technology. The Dynamic Waterjet XD will demonstrate the newest in waterjet height sensing technology, the DynaBeam™ Laser Height Sensing System. DynaBeam is the only non-contact material height sensing solution available in the industry and can be used in combination with Dynamic Waterjet XD for 2D and 3D bevel cutting.

High performance at an exceptional price

The Mach 2 is a value-priced machine tool optimized for either pure or abrasive waterjet cutting. Whether cutting 3" thick steel plate or multi-stacked gasket material, the Mach 2 provides fast and accurate cutting at an exceptional price. The Mach 2b will be shown with the new HyPlex® Prime pump which has a highly modular design, allowing customized pump performance at a low production-level price.
Application specialists will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate how Flow's waterjet technology provides fast and highly accurate cutting across all of our systems.
