Flow Waterjet Ups the Ante with Joe Gibbs Racing

 

KENT, Wash.,- Flow International Corporation, the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of ultrahigh-pressure waterjet solutions for cutting applications, announced today a new partnership with Joe Gibbs Racing. A current competitor in the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series and The NASCAR Xfinity Series, North Carolina based Joe Gibbs Racing is looking to Flow’s elite waterjet technology to support the team’s endeavors in the upcoming 2019 season and beyond.

Joe Gibbs Racing has added a Mach 500 4020 with a Dynamic XD® cutting head and HyperJet® Pump to their production operations at their Huntersville facility. With high-precision, multi-axis cutting capabilities, the addition will expand the team’s ability to design and manufacture custom performance parts necessary to maintain a competitive edge on the track.
“At this level of competition, precision is everything,” says Mark Bringle, technical partner activation manager of Joe Gibbs Racing. “This machine is the perfect combination of reliability, accuracy, and speed we need to produce the parts that keep our cars at peak performance. This is a huge opportunity for us.”

As one of Flow’s signature workhorse systems, the Mach 500’s precision engineering makes it the quickest and most accurate production waterjet on the market. The team’s newly acquired unit is configured with a Dynamic XD cutting head – capable of complex bevel and compound angle cutting with 5-axis motion for maximum flexibility – as well as Flow’s HyperJet pump creating ultrahigh-pressure up to 94,000 psi.

Jim Jenson, president of Flow International, comments, “It’s exciting for me to see our products contribute to real world results at the highest competitive level and as a personal fan, it’s an honor to give the team over at Joe Gibbs Racing the tools they need to succeed. Partnerships like this one are why we strive to be the best we can be.”

This season, Flow will be represented on the legendary No. 19 car, driven by full-time NASCAR Xfinity Driver Brandon Jones.
